Relentless Rex: The Game

The Best Metroidvania Ever Designed by a T-Rex

If METROID made sweet, sweet love with CONTRA, and nine months later their baby was raised by BIT.TRIP RUNNER (the family butler), that creation would be named RELENTLESS REX: THE VIDEO GAME! It's a claw-drawn, action-adventure platformer in which you help an assortment of characters explore and race through dangerous locations, using your environment, special power-ups/weapons, and the help of others to try (in vain) and escape my bloodthirsty jaws. But just when you think you're safe and you're chillin' at the local pub, I come storming back again and again, destroying everything in my path and stopping at nothing to catch my next meal (you).

Designed to be a community crowdsourced project, Kickstarter pledges gave supporters a say in the design of this game's characters, powers, and environments. Want An Alien Queen Rexzilla (complete with face-bursting parasite) chasing a cybernetic soldier through a Synthwave Submarine labyrinth?—We've got that!!! A fairweather Sparkle Griffin that blasts laser-blade feathers from its wings?—Done! (Things are gonna be as crazy as your mama after a case of Red Bulls.) Fun with a dark sense of humor, your playable charcters will be subjected to all manner of twisted tortures during their escapes. And even if you successfully navigate each perilous course, you still may not make it out alive! (Hint: A dinosaur's gotta eat.) After all, I'M the star of this game—NOT YOU! This ain't your great great great great great great great great grandcestor's video game!

I'm Glad You Asked...

Designed to be the first ever
running-platformer mashup (first one developed by a T-Rex anyway)— When you need to explore and interact with characters, you're PLATFORMING. But when there's a T-Rex on your @&%$#, YOU RUN, SON !!!

Created by a T-Rex and YOU—
co-designed characters, Rex-modes, backgrounds, and more! Financial supporters voted for content and submitted their own, unique ideas! The variety and insanity of this game was only limited by the size of your tiny human brains!

Sitting comfortably between Full HD
& 4K resolution, Relentless Rex is filled with beautifully-detailed, hand-drawn... er, CLAW-drawn illustrations and animations. (Anything else is like rubbing dirt in your eyes.)

I "go through" A LOT of runners in my
game, which means more characters for you to help create and play!

Worlds will be drawn and
animated in different styles by amazing, new game artists, keeping your experience visually fresh!

This is a game with SPEED—
"How fast?" Why don't you ask the last five runners I chased down? Oh, that's right... THEY DIDN'T MAKE IT !!!

Marvel at my lightning-fast,
death-defying adaptations as you desperately race to find radical power-ups to help you prolong the inevitable escape certain death.

Challenging, carefully-crafted levels
and bold, graphic characters with personality—designed with FUN and DIAGNOSABLE GAME ADDICTION in mind! Just one hit & you can't quit :-)

Compatible with many game ......

Relentless Rex balances action, style,
and humor with a dark streak—SO ENGAGING it will attract your kids, SO TWISTED it will send YOU to therapy.

Levels flow into each other and pick up
where the last one left off, creating a real sense of a perpetual chase!

And lastly, please always remember—
I'm RELENTLESS! I will hunt you down if you don't support my game... DON'T TEST ME HUMAN!!!
