Last May Road Rash spiritual successor Road Redemption cruised past its $160K Kickstarter goal with $173,803. Now developer DarkSeas Games has released an alpha build of its motorcycle combat game.

It's also released a video showing how the game looks in its current iteration. It's got plenty of gruesome sledgehammer swingin', katana slicin' racing action. Check it out.

The alpha costs $40 (about 24) and comes with a digital art book, digital soundtrack, a pre-order exclusive barbed-wire baseball bat, and access to all future versions of the game.

The final version of Road Redemption will feature diverse, procedurally generated environments, splitscreen and online co-op, and you'll be able to earn money to customise your character with all manner of equipment.

Road Redemption is aiming for an August release and will appear on PC, Mac, Linux and Wii U.
