Vector Unit, the folks behind Riptide GP (one of the best games for Android ever), has let us know that a new title -- Shine Runner -- will be available tomorrow in the Android Market. Imagine the same type of amazing physics and graphics used for futuristic Jet-Skis in Riptide GP, but imported into a moonshine runners airboat deep in the southern swamps, complete with gators, shacks, stumps, and revenuers. The game's goal is to maximize your score over a ten day period of smuggling through rivers and bayous, while keeping a step ahead of Johnny Law. But I think I'm going to end up with the same mindset as Ralf Knoesel, Vector Unit’s Technical Director, who says:
Our theme for this game is simple. Two words: ’Redneck Chaos.’ Yes, there’s strategy to the trading meta-game, but personally I just love smashing alligators into chicken coops, punting cops off the tops of levies… I’ve been working on Shine Runner for months now and I still laugh when I’m playing.
You had me at redneck chaos, Ralf. Hit the jump to see a few more screenshots and a gameplay trailer, then join me as we all wait patiently for tomorrow.
