The 3D action rogue-like Rad will launch for Switch on August 20, publisher and developer Bandai Namco revealed today in partnership with Double Fine Productions. You may recall that the game was first unveiled during a Nindies Showcase earlier this year.
Coinciding with today’s release date news, Bandai Namco has announced a new Rad art fan contest, with the winning design being featured in the actual game. Here’s the full rundown:
But that’s not all! Today will kick off the Rad fan art contest, where the community can submit their rad graffiti designs that best represent the game. Entries will be evaluated by the development team, with the winning design being featured in the game itself, and the grand prize winner receiving additional limited swag items, including a skateboard, glow-in-the-dark action figure, lunch box and floppy disk. Two runner up winners will also be chosen to receive the limited swag items. Those interested in entering and finding official rules and regulations can visit: www.RADArtContest.com.
We also have the following overview for Rad:
Rad is a 3D action rogue-like set in a post-post-apocalyptic world, where humanity has faced Armageddon not once, but twice. Players will take on the role of a teenage protagonist who must venture into the Fallow – an ever-changing, radioactive wasteland filled with unknown and unspeakable creatures. It’s here that they’ll find the solution to heal the world, and transform the cracked, barren landscape into a lush source of new life. The fate of the world depends on the player, a sweet bat, and whatever strange new abilities they gain as the world around them ravages their body – twisting and mutating them into something far less than human, but far more powerful.
