Road Rash, Flash video footage appears

Canned EA, Bottlerocket projects.

Video footage of unreleased games Road Rash and Flash (the superhero) has spilled onto the internet.

The Flash clip (on superannuation) shows the scarlet-clad hero sprinting around a cityscape, running up buildings and punching the lights out of no-gooders - zipping between so quickly he appears to teleport. Textures and cartoon-like, which suits the licence and keeps the frame-rate up.

Developer Bottlerocket was making the game, but had to pack it in when closing its doors in September, after a dirty battle with Namco Bandai over the development of Splatterhouse.

Road Rash appears in pre-visualisation form, with only the bikes and characters fleshed out - miscellaneous traffic is untextured. The clip (also on superannuation) shows the player roaring around a mountainous track, pulling competitors off bikes and hitting others with poles.

The footage is supposedly from EA Warrington. The project, however, is rumoured to have been cancelled, according to Destructoid.
