If you browse the Indie Games section of Xbox Live with some frequency (and you should; one of our 2010 games of the year came from there) you probably ran across a homage/remake to Super Dodgeball. That came from Miracle Kidz, a Japanese developer comprised of many programmers from the Technos’ glory days.
Now, they’re taking a shot at a sequel to one of the best loved, barfing beat-em-ups of all time, River City Ransom. The game is development for a summer 2011 console release, a PC version coming later. What consoles remain a mystery, although their dodgeball effort was an Indie release, and will soon grace WiiWare apparently.
It probably says something in this day and age when a sequel to one of the industries greatest is plopped onto an Indie service instead of getting the full Live Arcade or even retail release. River City Ransom deserves far better.
