'..joy comes from amassing items, gaining experience and watching your character evolve into a godly killing machine.'' - Joystiq
''This game is immaculate. The enemy design, the sound effects, the powers, the fights, all of it feels wonderful.'' - Eurogamer
"..a ridiculously compelling procedurally generated side-scrolling platform survivor-me-do, with multiple characters to play as, single and co-op play, and some of the hardest-hitting deaths I've experienced in such games" - RockPaperShotgun
Risk of Rain is an action platformer with roguelike elements. With permanent death as a primary feature, players will have to play their best to get as far as possible. Fight on a mysterious planet with randomly spawning enemies and bosses, either alone or with 3 friends in online co-op. With over 100 items at your disposal, you will find the tools you need to find the teleporter back home. Discover a myriad of randomly chosen stages, from the desolate forest to the frozen tundra.
The three main goals for our game are simple:
Design a game that is randomly generated every play-through, to keep replayability high and fresh.
Time = difficulty. The higher the in-game time gets, the harder the difficulty gets. Keeping a sense of urgency keeps the game exciting!
Be enjoyable, regardless of whether you win or lose. No more fussing with complex and non-intuitive gameplay patterns. Players should not blame the game for their loss!
Engage in local and online multiplayer with friends and other players from around the world!
Play and unlock 10 unique characters, from the Commando to the Miner to the Engineer.
Fight through hordes of different enemies and bosses, randomly chosen by the game with random abilities and powers.
Get lost and discover 10 massive levels with different enemies, shrines, and chests on each one!
Recruit the help of a wide variety of drones, from missile drones to healing drones!
Unlock the lore of the game through the item and monster logs!
Unlock new items and characters through difficult achievements to keep the game fresh with each playthrough.
Save your best highscores and stats!
Very fun, adictive survival game , beautiful 16 bits style , great for low specs pcs.
This game gives you a bang for your buck, with an already low price of ten dollars and the game being out for a long time you are likely to get a lot of playing time for how little you play. Different every run, a fun kit in each character and a large list of characters in fact. This game gives hours of fun and lets you play with friends with satisfying results.
In risk of rain you are stranded on a planet with the goal to escape. Go alone or with friends fighting through waves of enemies to reach bosses to escape this foreign world. Survive this world with power ups. Power ups can be bought with gold earned by killing monsters or on monsters themselves. With 100+ power ups no two games are exactly the same. This game can easily give you and your friends 40+ hours of enjoyment and at such a low price I highly recommend picking this game up.
It's small and simple but very hard and challenging platform action game. You're traveling through the galaxy and fighting hordes of various monsters. There are dozens of items to pick up, few characters to unlock, and artifacts that can change the rules of game. It's very hard if you're trying to play it alone, but if you have a couple of friends you can try to survive together. Very fun, and challenging game.
Risk of Rain gets you stranded in an alien planet you have to explore in order to get back to your ship. The design and animation of the sprites is a wonderful example of fine pixel art, and the soundtrack has some really cool tunes. It includes some minimalistic storytelling elements, but this one is all about the action. Over time, different enemies spawn and each kill gives you money to buy different power ups scattered around. This way you get deadlier, but the catch is that every minute you stay on the planet, difficulty increases and more powerful monsters spawn. There are many different characters to unlock, each with its own four abilities. With its three levels of difficulty, and tons of unlockables, mutators, achievements and secrets, you will be coming back to this one for a long time. Add the online and local multiplayer and you get a beautiful, challenging and really fun 2d action sidescroller that is really addictive.
