Radical Heights is now available for Windows
offering what Boss Key Productions calls X-TREME Early Access for their
free-to-play battle royale shooter. They also now are selling a
Radical Heights Founder's Pack with cosmetic items and in-game currency for
the game, noting, "This product is not eligible for refund." Here's
the trailer showing
off gameplay, and here's word:
Welcome to RADICAL HEIGHTS, a free
*X-TREME Early Access* BATTLE ROYALE shooter. Partake in high-stakes battle
royale gunplay in a sunny SoCal dome as contestants drive-by on BMX bikes or
stalk other contestants from the shadows in search for weapons and prizes...but
also CASH that you can bank - win or lose! Whether you spend that cash on
righteous customization in your personal prize room or pull it from an ATM to
purchase weapons early in the next game -- building a wealth of cash is as
important as taking down the competition in this irreverent 80s-themed action
game show where everyone wants to be rich and famous!
Lol, okay. You know what's still ahead of it? "Welcome to the Game II," apparently the latest fad of a shitty horror game that nobody buys but people like to watch for a minute. That game is $10 and has under 500 concurrent players: http://steamcharts.com/app/720250
Any bad free game can get tens of thousands of concurrent players on its launch day... Radical Heights just isn't.
Edit: To illustrate how volatile those numbers are, I've seen them both jump up and down by the tens of thousands multiple times in the past ten minutes. It's probably no more than a handful of mid-level streamers filtering in and out of either game. Regardless, Twitch viewers don't make CliffyB money. Meanwhile, Far Cry 5 pushed PUBG off the #1 spot and proved to be Ubisoft's second most successful launch ever, but it has only 12k viewers...
