Psyonix announced today that not only will their September update add an entire spanking-new game mode to Rocket League, but it will also feature several free PAX/Penny Arcade-themed garage items.
At the time of this writing, The Adventure Pals has successfully been funded with about 40 hours left to spare in its Kickstarter campaign.
The release of fully 3D platforming adventure games has dwindled significantly since their inception, and subsequent golden age, on the Nintendo 64.
