What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“I want you to join me in shaping the future of this game, early access is available to those who want to be a part of the game's development. I regularly check and reply to the forums - building an incredible and supportive community around this game is extremely important to me, I want you to tell me when I am doing things wrong, and what I'm doing right. By supporting this game's early access you are investing in me to build a game that both of us want to play. In return? I can promise to listen to you and try my best not to disappoint.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“I'd like to have the game out of early access within 6 - 12 months of release, adding more polished content to the game, perhaps even multiplayer at a later stage.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“The full version will include all listed features on the store page.
  • Rich procedural maps that develop as you progress through the game.
  • A deep backstory that begs to be pieced together, story fragments are collected and can be viewed in the collections menu. Providing points to spend on upgrades.
  • An upgrade tree that you build as you progress through the game, allowing your towers to follow your playstyle.
  • Incredible music track that really helps immerse the player in the world of Riftwalker.
  • Stunning visuals.

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Once early access goes live - the core, polished mechanics will be in place. As the development continues, I will add more of the planned features as I develop them. Buying the game now will get you a small polished tower defense with light and dark mechanics and some incredible eerie atmosphere and music.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“No, I don't want to increase the price - however, at a later stage if I introduce multiplayer I will look at a small price increase and game packs so you can get the game for your friends. People who own the game pre-multiplayer will get multiplayer included in the game for no additional cost should I add multiplayer.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“As mentioned before, the community is one of my top priorities. Without you, I wouldn't have the motivation to release such a game. I regularly personally check and reply the community discussion, and the community hub will be your go-to place for decrypting and deciphering this game's lore. You'll need friends to help uncover the true nature of the Riftwalker Universe. If you're unsure that I care about the community, then come say hi and ask a few questions!”

About This Game

Riftwalker is a rogue-like tower defense in a world consumed by darkness, featuring rich backstory and endless, detailed procedural levels. You play the role of a riftwalker in a scouting party sent to investigate a nearby missing star, but find more than you were expecting - a civilization, or rather, what's left of it. It's your job to find out what happened and make sure the threat never spreads to your world.

Features

Tower Defense like you've never seen before! Riftwalker takes the ambitious aim to redefine the genre.
  • Rich procedural maps that develop as you progress through the game.
  • A deep backstory that begs to be pieced together, delivered in bite-sized fragments.*
  • Stunning visuals, that break free of the traditional mold surrounding tower defense games.
  • Full 3D camera control, get close to the action with full 3D camera controls, allowing you to really be a part of the action.
  • A large upgrade tree that you build as you play the game, allowing your towers to follow your playstyle.*
  • Incredible music track that really helps immerse the player in the world of Riftwalker.



* Early access notes, some features will become available post-release and are subject to change. I'm being open with the community as I don't want to disappoint anyone. The story is almost complete, however, I will only be introducing the story fragments once I've polished up the game-play some more and released the upgrade tree as they will integrate with the upgrade tree. In the meantime, there are clues to the story everywhere - without going into specific detail. The environment is being designed with the story in mind. I hope you decide to be a part of the community and help shape the future of this incredible game.
