After seeing his first CHIKARA event (a US-based independent professional wrestling promotion), developer Jesse Smith knew that he had to find a way to create a game based on the colorful comic book-style characters of the beloved promotion. Smith along with the rest of the team at Rotary Games are trying to make their vision come to life via Kickstarter.
Enter Rudo Resurrection: a colorful beat 'em up in the tradition of classics such as Double Dragon, Streets of Rage, and new classics in the genre such as Castle Crashers. Essentially a comic book come to life, Rudo Resurrection aims to borrow from the promotion's rich history to create a memorable beat 'em up you won't soon forget.
