The shooter is slated to stay in early access for a year and will launch tomorrow in a playable, yet unfinished, state.

"This is a five month passion project for the studio as we're creating and publishing the game entirely by ourselves, ' commented Radical Heights" Creative Director, Zach Lowery. You'll also be able to pop wheelies on BMX bikes, though that sounds a lot more life-threatening than cruising around a chaotic warzone in a vehicle. Players will be able to horde and spend their cash as they please, which does possibly present some balancing issues.

"Game Show Moments" take place at random during each match in dynamic fashion, with more to be introduced as the game continues development in Early Access, a spokesperson tells Variety. This will give purchasers exclusive cosmetic choices "inspired by 80s action movies", a collection of in-game cash and real money currency, and a permanent boost to their cash generation. Just a few days after this announcement, the team has announced a very new game: Radical Heights.

Boss Key also promises to make gameplay as wacky as its setting by introducing items like BMX bikes, workout trampolines, confetti bombs, inflatable decoys and remote explosives. Like crates in other battle royale games, players can camp these spots to try and steal the items off players earning this loot.

One of the most interesting aspects of Radical Heights is that players are allowed to hold onto cash acquired, even in a loss. "We're huge fans of Battle Royale games along with the bright, inviting irreverence of the '80s aesthetic".

The full version of Radical Heights is set to be released sometime in 2019. If it follows a fate similar to that of Lawbreakers, it's unlikely Boss Key will fund bringing the title to more platforms. In Radical Heights' case, these bonuses initially included $10,000 of in-game cash, which can be spent on weapons, gadgets, and armor of different rarities.

Additional Notes: Recommended specs for low quality settings in 1080p resolution.
