Radiant Entertainment might be a small developer with just one game in existence, but its second -- the just-announced robotic fighting game Rising Thunder -- has a pretty strong pedigree.
Rising Thunder is the brainchild of Evolution Championship Series co-founder and Radiant chief technical officer, Tom Cannon, and while there's not much information out there other than a few video trailers, you can be pretty sure it'll be well-tuned for competitive play. It won't just be for hardened e-sports pros, though, as Rolling Thunder will enable one-button special moves to ease the learning curve.
The game promises to be fully free-to-play, with the only announced real-money transactions at this time being cosmetic items. The technical alpha begins July 28, and you can sign up for it on the Rising Thunder website.
