Get ready to kickstart your bikes! See what I did there? Dan Geisler, programmer and co-designer of Road Rash 1, 2 and 3, went to Reddit yesterday to voice the fact that he’s ready to resurrect the franchise.

A Reddit user posted a picture of the Road Rash title screen and asked why the game hadn’t resurfaced. Geisler himself later chimed in and posted on the thread:
