“unapologetically political, socialist game about worker liberation in the face of overpowering capitalism. It’s also quite a bit of fun to play.”

“Its politics are repulsive [...] immature and deliberately offensive [...] It’s pretty funny that socialists are selling an overpriced product via Nintendo’s latest console and the computer-game portal Steam, which is run by the multi-billion-dollar company Valve. [...] I hate to admit it, but this has the makings of a good game. [...] Go download Streets of Rage 2 for a dollar.”

About This Game

In a dystopia where wealthy capitalists control elections, media, and the lives of working people, we’re faced with two choices -- accept it or fight for something better.

Tonight We Riot doesn’t have just one hero. Instead, you play as a movement of people whose well-being determines the success of your revolution.

Core Features:
  • Couch co-op
  • 20 unlockable weapons, gear, and perks
  • A dog
  • Whimsy
  • Kaiju
  • A wood chipper
  • Endless Mode
  • Horror Synth
  • The unique catharsis that comes from throat-punching a billionaire ghoul who would rather watch the world and everyone on it burn than lose a tax break

Please spend your money on our game, Tonight We Riot.
