People love going fast. I mean, rollercoasters wouldn’t be nearly as cool if they puttered along at 5mph. We all have that need… that need for large amounts of velocity! Or something. Anyway, the various Lazer Ryderz have a need for speed and are ready to race each-other for it, looking to harness the energy of Power Prizms, which will let them zoom off across the galaxy. Just be careful, or you’ll crash into the trails left by the other riders. That’s the story behind Lazer Ryderz, a new game up on Kickstarter by Greater Than Games.
In the game, players will take on the role of one of the four Lazer Ryderz: the Galactic Waveryder, the Lazer Shark, the Super Sheriff, or the Phantom Cosmonaut. The goal is to maneuver your character around the board, avoiding the trails left by yourself and the other riders, and collecting the power prizms. Speed is the name of the game. But the faster you go, the harder it is to turn. You’ll have to push your luck and the envelop if you want to come out first.
The Kickstarter campaign is up and running now. They’re almost to their goal with still 22 days left on the clock.
