Press Kit – Rad Venture


Rad Venture is a fast-paced, 3D-Platformer, Collect-a-thon with ATTITUDE! A rebellious youth named Rad finds himself in a bind with the law and is ordered to capture a mysterious thief with the power to erase magic; the world’s life source. Rad is now tasked with tracking down the thief, collecting the powerful McGuffinite crystals, and fighting the sinister Synergy Sisters.


Development on Rad Venture began in 2015. Inspired by the resurgence of 3D Platformers appearing on crowdfunding sites, a small team of college students began working on their image of a next-gen 3D Platformer. Spearheaded by Character Artist, Brandt Howard, Rad was created. Rad Venture has gone through multiple prototypes before landing on a final design. During the Fall and Spring semesters of the 2017-18 school year, the team began work on Rad: Capstone (later renamed Rad: Before the Adventure) for their college capstone project, which later became a finalist in the 2018 E3 College Game Competition. In the Spring of 2019, Knick-Knack Games was officially formed, and true production on Rad Venture began.
