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,

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.

Definite recommendation for puzzle lovers and enthusiasts.
Bonus for music lovers: the soundtrack is gorgeous. It gives each level personality and appropriately immerses us within the game.

You'll be ripping your hair out as early as Level 10 ('Metro' will mess you up). It's a grand opportunity to practice patience, persistence and perseverance.

What's great about EDGE is that the solutions are not kept secret from us players, instead they are presented in their multitude and possibility. Our goal is to decide the best way to execute the solution, and then put it into motion. It's a puzzle of practicality and action more than traditional puzzles which only exercise intellect. That gives EDGE its edge: a sense of adventure.

There's a ranking system per level, and some not-so-hidden areas (see the map on the upper left) so that gives you lots of replay value as you strive to earn the "S" ranking.

The controls give a nice weight to your character (the cubey thing), allowing for a platformer-like experience, and it may take a while to get used to, but hey, a good game is one that encourages us to stick to it.

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.

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.

Fun but gets harder (which isn't a bad thing) :D

Score: 9.4/10 (would be 10 if it had workshop support)

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.

It's a great game that will put your imagination and reflexes to the limit. Lots of cool features and awesome animations throughout the game, not just cubes.
Unfortunately there is a 0.4 seconds input delay to every step you take, and this makes some of the levels uncompletable, and the game caps at 30 fps.
Music is somewhat motivating but it gets repetitive.

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!

This game is actually quite special. It feels like a platfomer but you mostly roll around on an isometric level (ie. Super Mario RPG) hitting switches and solving puzzles. The controls are really tight, allowing you you manuver this... block around.

The charm really comes from the level design, the music - everything comes together into a really slick game.

Originally developed for mobile devices, this one is updated with full resolution and frame-rate unlock support. It's really quite sharp.

Highly recommended!

EDGE

A great little puzzle game that requires quick reactions and some lateral thinking.

Rating 6/10

The main objective of EDGE is to traverse your cube through some ingenious and rather convoluted levels made up of blocks, buttons and platforms whilst avoiding all manners of death as quickly as possible. Picking up small prisms that are dotted around the level speeds up your cube and gives you a higher rating for completing a level. There is also the ability to perform 'edge time' by balancing your cube on one of it's edges which allows you to hang off the side of walls. It's a mixture of balance and timing but it rewards you with time reduction at the end of the level.

Each new level, of which there are over eighty, represents a new challenge and new gameplay mechanics, learning these new mechanics is fairly simple as there are clues along the way. Its success lies in its simplicity. Get your cube from point A to point B in the fastest time you can manage.

It can be frustrating at times and there are a couple of fiendishly tricky sequences that can verge on annoying/frustrating but it's also incredibly addictive and rewarding.

It's not a traditional puzzle game nor is it platform game, it's something in between and it's great fun.
