RIVE: First Gameplay Trailer Released

It's been a while since we released the announcement trailer for our upcoming shooter game RIVE. Time to show you some new footage!

We’ve been relatively quiet lately, but we’ve been super busy visiting a number of expositions to demo RIVE. We’ve been to Gamescom, Tokyo Game Show, INDIGO and the EGX. In the meantime we obviously continued working on the game, as can be shown in the first official gameplay trailer! Enjoy!

More news coming up soon....

As always, do let us know what you think!

Cheers,

Quick review:

Short Verdict: First of all, it's more of a platformer than a puzzle game. Well, this game grows on you. At the beginning, I was kind of disappointed in Two Tribes. Then, I decided: "ok, I'll just beat the levels". After I did, I was "What the hell, I'll get all the achievements!" (and I did). One thing though: I started playing it on an old computer and the gameplay sucked. Unless you're running the game way above recommended settings (maybe just a video card with some decent dedicated memory will do), your experience probably won't be as good as it should be.

Pros:
  • Over 100 levels that are nice and feel unique
  • It's challenging, fun, and you grow to like it more as you play it
  • BGM is varied and all tunes are nice
  • Nice minimalist graphics (it's a pro for me)
  • You don't get thoughts like "If only this game had this feature..." or "Too bad it's missing from the game", which is a great sign. It feels like a 100% completed game
  • Has some replay value if you aim for high scores

Cons:
  • There's not much of a difficulty curve. It isn't rare to play a easier level after a tough one (and that's the only con I can think of)

Bought on / for: Steam Store for R$ 2.79 (US$ 1.22) - totally worth it!

It's good little puzzle game that requires you to react quickly and control the cube to run in the correct directons.
Fun to play and easy to challenge.

An interesting puzzle game where you guide a cube over different obstacles to gather smaller cubes and find the exit. Your performance depends on how fast you complete the level and how many times you've died. It's equal parts challenging, mind-bending and fun.

--------------
Pro's:
--------------
* The game is unique, with its own idea of the puzzle genre, using a cube to roll around and navigate a constantly changing, atmospheric world.

* The music is great, and is one of the main elements to the game that will cause you to have random nostalgiac dance sessions.

* As the price is considerably low at 7.99 US Dollars, I would reccomend to wait for a sale, as I have seen two 90% off sales within `30 days.

* Can be played as casually, or as rage enducing as you would like, with the level completion system being an A-D grading system, alongside counting the amount of fails and checkpoints you have.

*A fun "Pick up and play" game, not having to have any knowledge or skill prior to using this game. (However, I would reccomend that you already know how to use your keyboard, eyes, and reactions.)

* Quick download, low amount of space required, and little to no set up. This encourages people to jump right into the game, without having to mess with tons of configuration files to get a smoot, nice gameplay experience

--------------
Con's:
--------------
* The settings tab doesn't have very many choices in terms of render quality. (But the game isn't graphically intensive, so this is ruled out.)

* The controls are solid, but it is hard to enterperate what it will do sometimes. This is only very few amount of times, so don't let it deter you from getting this masterpiece of a puzzle game.

--------------
In Conclusion:
--------------
This game is alot of fun for anyone, with interesting gameplay elements that get you engaged, without giving you a lot of stress like most puzzle games give you nowadays, as at some moments, it will get you on the EDGE... See what I did there? Anyway, I would give this Indie title a 9 out of 10, and I strongly reccomend you BUY THIS GAME AND GO PLAY IT!

Very fun game. First played it on an iPad several years ago, so when I saw it on sale here I had to pick it up. The game has pretty cool visuals at points but also plays very nicely. The arrow keys and turning takes a little bit of time to get used to but becomes natural after a few levels. Not an overly hard game, but definately some challenging points.

This title feels like some sort of weird mish-mash between Tetris and Marble Madness. There were times I wanted to chuck my controller at the wall after my cube fell to its death in the void. But then I realized it was 2014 and not many people play this frustrating of a game on a piece of hardware that uses a controller anymore.

Want something minimalistic and addictive? Look no further. Easy to pick up and easy to throw down.

Made me feel like it's over ten years ago, buying a "new" game for my (bootleg) NES and not being able to stop playing because it's so simple and entertaining. The 8-bit feeling is not only because of the art style (I totally dig that prismatic style they gave the game!), it's got the (not 'an') appropriate soundtrack too!

Also has a demo. More games should have a demo.

EDGE is a great little platform/puzzle game where you roll a cube around an isometric world formed out of blocks. Your task is to find and pick up a number of little 'prisms' scattered around the level, before making your way to the exit. This would be easy, if each level were not so precisely and fiendishly designed to hinder you in your mission.

EDGE originated on the iPhone where it had an innovative finger-slide control system. Luckily, it has not suffered from the conversion to desktop formats, and I found it easy to play with a joypad or keyboard.

The level design is the reason I am writing this review - it is masterful, with only a few mis-steps. The way the game establishes a language of cubes, switches and sliding blocks and then makes humour out of them needs to be experienced by any student of game design.

This is one of the few retro styled games that actually captures the spirit of 8-bit gaming as well as the appearance. It has the same kind of feeling as Nebulus or Marble Madness, and seems like the kind of game Ultimate: Play the Game would release if you sent a modern PC back in time to 1984.

I must mention the incredible soundtrack, which while completely modern, constantly recalls the sounds of 8-bit gaming, both Western and Japanese. Highly recommended.

Great game! It's simple and the difficulty curve too slow but is very funny.
I loved the minimalist style, the isometric point of view and of course the phase marked by the amazing its amazing music.

Very recommended game and OST!
