Introducing … Rising Thunder

If you were at Evo2k15 or watching the live stream at home, you may have seen the premiere of a trailer featuring giant robots beating each other up. Guess what? I helped make that!

Rising Thunder is a new PC fighting game developed by Radiant Entertainment in Northern California. It’s entirely free to play, built from the ground up for online competition with GGPO3 netcode. We’re a small (but dedicated!) team of FGC and game industry veterans – led by Tom and Tony Cannon, founders of the Evolution Championship Series.

Of course it’s still early in development and we have a lot of work to do, but our Technical Alpha opened today. Sign up now for a sneak peak at what we’ve built so far! The first wave of players are already queuing up for matches and experiencing the game firsthand. We’ll be activating more accounts daily as we monitor server load.

All honest feedback is very much appreciated. We simply couldn’t do this without the fighting game community’s support. With a little time and a little luck, we can build something amazing together. We’ll see you online soon!

    By the way, if Radiant Entertainment sounds familiar, it’s because they also created Stonehearth – a game about building and conquest in an epic (and charming) fantasy setting. If you’re into RPG or RTS games at all, it’s definitely worth a look. We’re two separate teams working within the same studio, so i can say without bragging that those guys are building something amazing!
