RIVE Shmupstravaganza Trailer Showcases New Abilities

Posted by on June 4th, 2015 | 0 Comments | Tags: ,

Rive is a shmup with some unique attributes. For one, the game allows you to hack enemies into friendlies that shoot alongside you in battle. It also seems to have a bit more story/progression than most games in the genre.

Rive is being developed by Two Tribes. The Netherlands-based developers have worked on the Toki Tori Franchise and Edge, to name a couple of projects. RIVE is a platforming shmup with a hacking mechanic that allows you to alter enemies’ behaviors. It looks like a wild ride, and I’m always on board when a Sonic Picnic soundtrack is involved!

The game is set to release later this year at the digitally affordable price of ~$10.
