Red Rampant is set during Robert the Bruce’s successful wrestle for the Scottish crown and guerrilla campaign against the medieval world’s greatest military force whilst beset with sharpening knives in every shifting shadow. Detaching yourself from the romance and emotional connection with this, the most supreme of underdog tales, it’s difficult to not rationally conclude that this was simply not only improbable but downright impossible… and yet it happened.
Somehow the impossible happened, not in an instant but through the culmination of a thousand micro victories and bruised arms holding strong. Whilst Bruce, his loyal followers and a healthy serving of luck are accredited in the history books, it was the player, a boy-tuning-man from a hamlet, who made this unfeasible scenario possible. The default outcome of our narrative is crushing annihilation for the fledgling Scottish rebellion, but through the enigmatic rewind drug gifted by the shrouded figure of The Alchemist, the player can literally reverse defeat and steal victory. Splintering the static timeline into many dispersing shards, some promising hope and others the blackest doom.

After 3 years of part-time development on Red Rampant, Jake McCullagh graduated from Strathclyde in 2020 with a first-class Physics degree and embraced his dream of working on his idea full time. With creativity and perseverance, he's turned an idea, into all this.
It was a chance encounter in a train station where Chris and Jake first discussed the idea of Red Rampant. 4 years later and those discussions are now in the thousands. Chris' progression through the Film and TV industry was aided by his unencomberable work ethic and mastery of storytelling. If it wasn't for Chris, this game wouldn't be where it is today.
