Help us out with RIVE's marketing!

Hi everyone! Besides updates, we've been working on RIVE's marketing recently, trying to get the word out to a larger group of gamers. So far, we've reached a core group that's very enthusiastic (you!), but we hope to find a broader audience in the coming months.

You can help us a lot by filling out the RIVE Marketing Questionnaire we've prepared. Hopefully this will give us some insights into how to talk about the game better. Completing the form should only take a few minutes, so don't hold back :-)

It would also help us a lot if you'd share the above link with your friends and relatives. It doesn't matter whether they're familiar with RIVE, or have played it or not. We'd just like to get as much input as possible!

Thanks a bunch!

About This Game

RIVE is the metal wrecking, robot hacking shooter you've been waiting for! This 360-degree shooter/platformer hybrid lets you choreograph a ‘dance of destruction’ in insanely spectacular battles and set-pieces. RIVE feels like the explosive games of yore, pumping megapixels in true 21st century style.

  • Endless variety: fight on land, underwater, in zero gravity or on a moving train!
  • Gather hacks and control your enemies.
  • Upgrade your spider tank's special attacks, armor and loot magnet.
  • A 6+ hour campaign, voiced by Mark Dodson (Star Wars & Gremlins).
  • A deep story featuring our hero Roughshot, robot butlers, space loot and... clean teeth.
  • Prove your mettle in the extra Speedrun and Single-Credit modes.
  • Dozens of on-line leaderboards to compete in.
  • Keep playing with the daily Challenges and infinite Battle Arenas.

About hacking:

Ever dreamed of controlling your enemies? In RIVE you can. Find the hacks and get those gun turrets, nurse drones and irritable smashbots on your side. Or kickstart and hitch a ride on top of a bullet train!

About the story:

When space scavenger Roughshot gets trapped on a mysterious starship, he has to form a surprising alliance. Don't care about the story? Just shoot the messenger. Literally.
