Canceled Fighting Game Rising Thunder Will Be Released With Open-Source Server

Rising Thunder open alpha

Rising Thunder's defining trait was its simplified controls, which Radiant created to make its fighter more accessible to a wider audience.

Before Radiant put the project on pause, it had released a free alpha build of Rising Thunder.

When developer Radiant Entertainment announced that Riot Games had acquired it past year, the studio also revealed that it was shuttering its indie fighting game, Rising Thunder. It was to have all the depth of a traditional fighter, but with a simplified, infinitely more accessible control scheme, but was cancelled after Radiant were acquired by League of Legends developers Riot Games.

Rising Thunder was a big deal in the fighting game community when it was announced way back in 2015. Tom and Tony Canon, the founders of the EVO fighting game tournament series, were developing it, and fighting game champion Seth Killian, a well known figure in the scene who also worked with Capcom on Street Fighter IV, was the game's producer. Until then, Happy Holidays from the Rising Thunder team!

Ryanair to hold its first-ever meeting with union

Final game build: We've tinkered with the old final build of the game, adding offline, local play (!) along with some quality of life improvements.

"Local play will support keyboard vs. controller only", notes Radiant, "but it should be straightforward to hack in 1p controller support through external scripting".

Rising Thunder's final build will beaccompanied by source code for an open-source version of the game's server so players can still play in match-made games online. So instead we've whipped up a first pass at a bare-bones server that will allow you to play online with rudimentary matchmaking and limited features.
