Quick note to my readers on this blog: This game comes from the same team, Ragtag Studios, that developed Unstoppable Fist, which is one of the few reviews that I’ve published here on my personal blog and not on another website. Also note that this game’s Kickstarter campaign has been cancelled – for a very good reason – that will be revealed in just a few short days from now.
It wasn’t too long ago that I had a quick Twitter conversation with a then brand new start-up Indie studio, Ragtag Studios, letting me know about its iOS title, Unstoppable Fist. This simple mobile title not only packed a big punch, but it packed a lot of retro style and character right along with its flying fist. I thought to myself ‘this new studio was one to keep an eye on going forward’; especially considering the team was comprised of people who had worked on Stubbs the Zombie, Thief 3, Halo Wars and Stuntman: Ignition. Fast forward to today and Ragtag Studios has put down its flying fist (and feet) for a while and came out limping with its Pikmin and Stubbs the Zombie inspired new title, Ray’s the Dead. Oh, and that bit about “limping,” don’t worry that – it’s all part of the plan.
