Rad’s neon art direction and mutant powers bring to mind the weird action games of the 1990s

The next game from Double Fine Productions is Rad. The third-person, top-down action game stars a young boy who battles through a procedurally-generated post-apocalypse by adopting mutant powers. It’s being spearheaded by project lead Lee Petty, the creator of previous Double Fine games Stacking and Headlander.

In the short trailer showed during Wednesday’s Nindies Showcase, the hero navigates a decidedly ’90s-themed wasteland, neon green vegetation sprouting in his wake. He mutates in a variety of ways, growing a snake head and goblin wings, sporting a flaming arm and acid feet, and laying eggs that hatch supporting minions.

The project will be published by Bandai Namco, and is scheduled for a summer 2019 release.
