The Game

 

Initial release: PC, Online + Splitscreen

Fly on top of modern jet engines with classic car chassis at break-neck speeds. Use your left and right grappling hooks to swing around pillars and grab other players off of their rockets. Drag, fling, clothesline, slam and string up your friends.

A team-based vehicle sport that plays like a cross between “Rocket League” and “Smash Bros”

  Like Soccer, but the players are the ball.   Damage and brutalize your opponents to make them worth more points,   then fling them through the goal to score based on the damage. The more worn down they are, the easier it is to drag and throw them. Their pain is your gain.

  Death by a 1000 cuts doesn't apply here: after they're worn down, finish off your opponent with a slam or string them up.   Not to worry, there have technically been no fatalities in an official match. Our Jockeys have access to the best healthcare and have signed liability waivers.

  Hands off the competition in this event. Make impossible turns at high speeds while dodging hazards and pulling off tricks to taunt the other Jockeys.

Style

Surf Guitar isn't just the soundtrack to Rocket Jockey, it's at the heart of the sport.

The iconic “Woody” would drive down the Interstate, surf boards strapped to the top, friends in tow. Today, any festival having to do with surfing usually has a classic car show nearby. The rocket chassis designs are a tribute to these classic cars as surfing culture's influence runs through every aspect of the game. All of this wrapped up in a healthy dose of dark humor.

For our soundtrack we're teaming up with surf guitar bands from Southern California, including the legendary father of surf guitar, Dick Dale.

Legacy

It's more than a remake, it's what the game could have been 20 years later.

Rocket Jockey was ahead of its time. It was a game perfect for multiplayer in an age when online gaming was finding its footing with dial-up modems, serial cables and gaming networks. A victim of its circumstances, Rocket Science Games closed its doors after the release and subsequent patch in 1996. The mechanics and music resonated with gamers who played it though, and the cult following it garnered has been waiting 20+ years to play something like it again.

Burn Ward LLC is not associated with Rocket Science Games in any way. None of the base code, art style, or rocket designs from the original game were used. Rocket Jockey is being built from the ground up by 2 fans of the original, who are making the game they want to play.
