Battle through the most outlandish reality TV show this side of Tiger King
Moscow, Russia – June 9th, 2020 – Rustic Fantastic development studio and 101XP publishing team are excited to announce that the cosmic arcade-style beat ’em up Redneck Ed: Astro Monsters Show is coming to PC this year.
Redneck Ed: Astro Monsters Show is an arcade beat-’em-up set in an intergalactic game show. Forced to compete in gruesome challenges to reclaim his stolen face, Ed must endure this torturous reality show while also trying to take down the sinister forces behind this business we call show.
Featuring hand-drawn art inspired by cartoonishly grotesque animation like Ren & Stimpy, Redneck Ed: Astro Monsters Show takes players through some of the weirdest and wildest worlds imaginable. As you battle through waves of bloodthirsty aliens, you’ll get a behind-the-scenes glimpse at the inner workings of the most sadistic game show in the universe.
While making their way through the game’s worlds, the player will end up working towards one of several possible endings, determined by the set of side quests they choose to complete. Ed’s really gonna have to get his hands dirty by completing various tasks for the local aliens. Well, at least the ones who do not immediately want to kill him, that is!
To get an early look at Redneck Ed: Astro Monsters Show, a free demo will be available as part of the Steam Game Festival June 16th – 22nd. It’s only available for a limited time, so sign up here as a reminder to ensure you don’t miss out!
“I’ve always been a fan of strange alien worlds and arcade action, and with Redneck Ed: Astro Monsters Show I let my imagination run wild,” said Olga Makushenko, Managing Director of Premium Games at 101XP. “It goes to some really outlandish places, but the whole thing is wrapped up in satire about showbiz, which has become more outlandish than ever in today’s world of reality TV and celebrity culture. Redneck Ed has been a trip to make and I can’t wait for people to lay eyes on its bizarre sights for the first time.”
