Have We Got A Blog For You!

Hello loyal fans of CHIKARA, gamers that love beat ‘em up style arcade classics and all of you wonderful spammers that inundate our inbox with comments to approve on our blog. We have a little blog here for you. We realize that we haven’t kept our promise to provide regular updates about Rudo Resurrection, but the fact is that the updates were more time consuming than we anticipated and they ended up being slightly disruptive to members of the team so early on in the process. We decided that we wanted them to use their time to work on the game and not have to prep marketing assets and write developer journals. Work on the game is moving forward even though we have hit our snags and technical issues, but we’re still forging ahead and hope to provide more information about when you might be able to get this game in your hands in the not-too-distant future. Now on to the stuff you really want to know.

Previously we had announced four of the CHIKARA stars that would be playable characters in Rudo Resurrection but we know you all clamored for more. So as a token of our appreciation for your patience, we have decided to give you a nearly complete roster of all of the characters that will be playable. We may have a few surprises up our sleeves and there may be some cameos here and there that we’ll reveal later, but here is the confirmed list:

So there you have it. Let the debate begin. Is your favorite CHIKARA star listed? If not, who would you like to see as a playable character? You never know, they might just show up in the game in another fashion. And we still haven’t listed all the enemies you’ll be fighting, but that’s an update for another day, folks. Before we wrap this up, we had one more surprise for you. We’d like to share some of the concept art of three of the playable characters. The 3D models of these characters were modeled based off of these concepts and they will look very similar to what you see here. We hope you enjoy them.

‘Twas The Night Before CHIKARAmas

…when all through the house
was the sound of clicking, the clicking of a mouse.

Rogue Brains employees were fully engrossed,
in an attempt to deliver a long overdue blog post.

The vegan treats were displayed on the table with care,
in hopes that UltraMantis would soon be there.

The children were sitting on the edge of their chairs,
screaming at the tops of their lungs for super snapmares.

And Stigma in his mask and Vin in his patchwork tights
brood as the Bitari prepare to issue their last rites.

When out from the curtain arose such a clatter,
the fans sprang from their seats to see what was the matter.

What to their wondering eyes should appear,
but the Osirian Portal as a Trio to begin the new year.

The BDK left a path of destruction in their wake,
while Jakob gave the CHIKArmy many a headache.

F.I.S.T. got a new member and had lots of fights,
but they’ll always and forever be friends in similar tights.

Death Haze has shown to be a formidable team,
while Bryce doing a top-rope dive was not just a golden dream.

Wiggly knocks it out of the park weekly on this Go-Go thing
while Mr. Loudspeaker’s voice booms from the center of the ring,

“Now Dasher! Now Sugar!
Now Brodie and Grizz!
On Colony! On Kingston!
On Quack and on Jig!”

Beating levels will add Tecnicos to your collection,
just you wait until you see Rudo Resurrection!

This poem has gone on way past its prime,
especially considering we can’t think of another rhyme.

(We apologize for the lack of communication,
be on the lookout for more updates in the new year!
