Double Fine Productions, known for titles such as Grim Fandango and Pyschonauts, has given their latest game a release date. The rogue-like action game Rad is set for an August release date.

In RAD, You play as a teenager wielding a bat with one goal - to restore life in a post-post apocalyptic world, where “humanity has faced armageddon not once, but twice”.

Rad was officially announced back in March and is being directed by Lee Petty, who previously worked on Double Fine’s doll-themed adventure Stacking and the sci-fi platformer Headlander.

The game is set in a world called Fallow and has an 80s aesthetic look. This radioactive wasteland gradually mutates your teenager with abilities as you progress through the game. Every stage is procedurally generated and the abilities you earn are randomized, and it can get crazy, like, poop spider-like versions of yourself to aid you in battle kind of crazy.

Check out Rad in action below.

Bandai Namco is working with Double Fine as the publisher of Rad and will be out on August 20, 2019 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC.
