Rising Thunder: Re-Thinking Fighters

For most people, fighting games are fun, but ultimately not something they can make competitive strides in.

Seth Killian wants to change that. With giant robots.

Now, though, Killian has been parted from Santa Monica for a little more than a year. In that time, he hasn't been idle. No, sir, not at all. What he has been doing is working with Radiant Entertainment, the guys who are responsible for EVO. They've been working on a new title that's sure to shake up the fighting game community.

Rising Thunder.

Rising Thunder is an all-online, free-to-play title that is trying to redefine how fighting games work. For starters, it is PC-only. So you'll be fighting it out on a keyboard. More than that, there will be no need for complex command entries. the super moves will be mapped to one button, and there will be a cooldown between periods where you can use them.

The game is still in it's alpha stage, and signups are ongoing for it. Until the game releases in proper form, you can sign up for the alpha and check out the press. Here's the teaser trailer released at EVO this year:
