The Road Redemption developers delivered and fixed up their botched release, it seems the problem was a debug build that was sent up by mistake for SteamOS & Linux.

The update was released in the early hours of the morning for me, so I was asleep while this was all fixed up. I also have a life outside of this website during the day, so I am not always able to write things up as soon as they happen, so please be mindful of that before bashing me/GOL in future (really surprised I had to write this section due to some comments recently). I am pleased to say I tested it out now I had some time, and it seems to work fine. It's really great to see them deliver.

About the game
Road Redemption takes place in a post-apocalyptic America, ruled by a brutal dictator. Without telling anyone, your gang leader has decided to head to the capital on a desperate assassination attempt. When the government catches him, the consequences for your gang, and everyone you know and love, will be devastating.

It's up to you and your fellow gang members to race across hundreds of miles of dangerous highways in order to track down your derelict leader before the government does. What you do next is up to you. Do you try to stop him in order to protect your family and friends from punishment, or do you join him in a risky attempt at ending the oppression once and for all?

Remember, it's in Early Access, so it will be unfinished and buggy.

This article got posted just after I posted a comment to the original article. I'm going to go ahead and take credit for these improvements. My words are all powerful.

That's a quick fix! I'm glad it's all solved now.

You shouldn't have to explain yourself about posting things earlier or later to be honest so I appreciate your effort/dedication.

Well, some people don't seem to understand and called GOL's reputation into it, it all got a bit silly and hopefully we can lay it to rest now.

Forgive me for going off topic, but I'm a little confused about something. Is TheBoss Liam or someone else. Someone called him Liam in the last post, but I could have sworn that I've seen TheBoss post before, and I don't remember Liam changing his username.

Liam is around somewhere, long live TheBoss.

The first rule about Dota 2 playtime, is you don't talk about Dota 2 playtime.

I think you're usually quite on top of things. And I find this update of Road Redemption quite fast as well.

One thing which I - initially - thought you were a bit slow on, was the Trine 3 release. But then I realised I'd much rather have you (or whoever writes up about a certain game) take enough time to give things an honest look.

Which doesn't only apply to Dota 2 if you ask me...

I'm having a bad day today it seems, i bought this game and Switch Galaxy Ultra, This game has random crashes/drops to desktop, so i've sent an email with log file :'(

Switch Galaxy Ultra downloads 0 bytes, but i'm not the only person with this problem and its not just on Linux :(

I did think about also buying Vendetta - Curse of Raven's Cry, but i'll hold off untill some reviews happen and also the SteamOS/Linux specs appear on the store page.

Oh well back to Alien Isolation for the 3rd time.
