RotR Releases to Steam, GOG.com, Itch.io and The Humble Store TOMORROW!
GOG: I’m not sure what the address will be, but we will be on the gog.com landing page on release day so it won’t be too hard to find!
I have cool news! The first thing is that Ruin of the Reckless is ALREADY AVAILABLE IN FRENCH. If you’re running it through Steam, right click the game name, go to properties, then ‘languages’ and switch to French, that’s it! You’re in business.
The second is that very soon after release RotR will also be available in both Spanish and Portuguese.
The translations have been undertaken by dedicated fans and members of our community and thanks to their efforts many more people will hopefully be able to play the game in their native tongues.
I want to thank, Kazey, Miguel Patil, Nexat Gameplays, and Garreheld for giving us the opportunity to reach these audiences!
The next announcement I have is potentially a very big deal for even those of you speak speak just one language!
We was able to get all of the artists that worked on the game to sign on, and although we didn’t initially think it was possible there will indeed
be a Ruin of the Reckless soundtrack available at launch! Assuming that the store page is approved in time, the album will be available from either Steam or GOG, (and possibly Itch.io as well.) on release day!
It will include lossless stereo-mixed versions of each track from the game, and will be priced at $4.99 US (asjusted by region), and for the first week it will be sold at a 15% discount along with the game and Collectors-Edition Art Pack. Speaking of Collectors Edition Art packs…
I’m sure many of you have heard every track by now, but here’s the description for those of you that have been under a rock!.
“Featuring an original theme song by Slime Girls, the Ruin of the Reckless soundtrack is a fast paced nostalgic crawl through tracks from the extremely talented minds behind Slime Girls,Protodome, and LRAD.
Experience the kaleidoscopic, electrical AWE of the awesome power of music! Through this one of a kind curated audio master collection you will be guided on a tour of aural wonder with 8 songs by Slime Girls, 4 by Protodome, and 1 by LRAD. This incredible selection of techni-color sonic pleasure will be laid at your feet. You will be inspired, you will be crushed, you will be broken down and built again. That’s the POWER OF MUSIC!
These tracks will delight all of your senses, as long as all of those senses are ‘hearing.’ Don’t believe us? Why don’t you talk to Popzara; they called it “the best soundtrack in any game… since the classic Lyle in Cube Sector”.
Note: Included files are in mp3 format.”
Collectors Edition Art-Pack
The collectors edition art pack contains concept art, illustrations, and other pieces from throughout development.
It will be available for $2.99 from Steam and GOG as well (and maybe itch.io) as well?
Here’s the product description:

Concept Art Pack – 42 pieces of concept art used to created Ruin of the Reckless (some illustrations, some pixel art) including concepts for several enemies that did not make it in to the game, and two 1920×1080 wallpapers depicting unused alternate versions of Stargroves final encounter with the master of the tower.
HD Ending Illustrations – The talented artist Talikira created gorgeous art depicting the final wishes of Stargrove and Stella. These 9 ultra-HD (4320×2340) renderings of the scenes show her illustrations off in gorgeous clarity, depicting a level of detail much greater than what is seen in the base-game.
Ending Illustration Concepts – On her way to crafting the gorgeous ending illustrations that made it into the game, Talikira prepared sketches and concepts depicting early versions and story-boards of each scene. These 20 illustrations each depict different stages of her process on various frames that made it into the final game.
Windows Icons – A fun collection of 5 windows icons depicting characters and assets from the game.
Original Kickstarter Promotional Art – Original concept art by Maki Naro, used during our Kickstarter campaign. Also includes an ‘alternate version’ with Kickstarter branding as featured on our Kickstarter page.
Official FOG logos and branding – Official original logos and branding images and assets used by FOG in official promotional material. You could use them to… make your own ‘fan poster’? I dunno! They’re in here too though!
Chibi-Pixel Emotes – The original pixel art used to make our charming Steam Emotes.”
For the penultimate time before release (we’re doing another post tomorrow) I want to thank all of you for coming along on this amazing ride with us and making Ruin of the Reckless a reality! We are humbled with gratitude! Good luck out there people!
