Fighting game Rising Thunder's alpha is now open to all
The game's alpha is now available to play and no longer requires a download code to play.
"Network test success!" developer Radiant Games tweeted some days ago. "As a result, Rising Thunder Alpha is now open to all. ... play immediately — no waiting!"
The developer said a balance patch that includes new character variants is also imminent.
Rising Thunder is developed by fighting game veterans Seth Killian, who worked on Street Fighter 4 at Capcom; Tom Cannon, who founded the Evo Championship Series tournament; and Tony Cannon, who developed online play middleware GGPO. The free-to-play fighter aims to eliminate some of the input barriers that can make learning fighting games intimidating, while remaining a hardcore competitive fighting game.
