ReVeN's release was pushed back. We do apologize for not updating our community on steam about the progress. We updated all of our other social media sites but this one slipped our minds. Since we are mainly funding ourselves besides the initial help from kickstarter the development has taken longer than anticipated. With full time jobs we don't have as much time in a day to work on the development. Rest assured we are still continuing ReVeN's development and we can't wait to show you all our progress as we move forward. Thank you all again for your support!

Hey guys, Developement is still continuing. Terribly sorry that we forgot to update steam on our progress. We've been updating our kickstarter and other social media but this one slipped our minds. We are almost done with the prequel game (ReVeN:XBridge) and then we are jumping straight to this one. I'll be posting a new video on here in just a few minutes. Thank you all for your patience. :)

Dev's silence isn't making me optimistic about this project, unfortunately.
danielfm123 Sep 12, 2016 @ 2:23pm

You guys are taking way too long, with developement on this game... What gives? The year is getting close to being over. Not a good sign.
Yon Jun 6, 2016 @ 10:11am 
Hello dev. Is this really coming this year?
TheCollectorX Feb 1, 2016 @ 6:20am

Its FInally the year of release for ReVeN and i'm still filled with excitement and anticipation for this game, a year ago i backed you guys on kick starter or the website you guys set up for this game, (cant remember which) i still cant wait for it to come out and im just ready to play this game. crossing my fingers and hoping it comes out soon!!!

Thanks! Be sure to check out our secondary project: ReVeN XBridge, which is available now on Steam Early Access.

The art design is so awesome. Especially these dinosaurs are really good. Looking forward to its release *-*

@ Alexander "Nos"

We've been working on a smaller ("smaller") sideproject to help us fund the game making process so that we can work on it full time. Despite our efforts we still have side jobs and our side project, Xbridge, has grown into a full blown epic multiplayer experience which is nearing release I might add. Much of the code and techniques unique to Xbridge will translate fairly effortlessly into ReVeN's base developement code, things like level destruction, the server that handles custom level design, real time multiplayer for 16 players etc. Overall we've simply grown as developers and can tackle far greater challenges we previously would haven't have been able to. We're still holding true to the promise of a release date set in 2016 for ReVeN. As to the exact date, It's done when it's done, and trust me, it's better this way.

I've since bought a copy of this game a long time ago and i'm still waiting for your release date, my only question now is if i oculd donate five more dollars and gain access to the beta on steam if possible, i would love to record this game and show it off on youtube for you guys if possible
NightCurseX Sep 23, 2015 @ 9:27am 
Make it an early access *.* ReVen "I want you!"
Techno Samus Jul 9, 2015 @ 11:52am 
metroid has always been my favorite game of all time so I know almost everything about Metroid from the games to the comics and to be honest. I would like to have a game similar on steam so I still get the enjoyment of a shooter similar to Metroid
Heiach Jul 2, 2015 @ 10:07am 
I've been having massive issues getting my construct 2 game to work properly online.. and even if I managed it, I'd probably have to re-write it all so it would work on Steam? Did you/have you had to do that so your game works on steam?
danielfm123 Feb 3, 2015 @ 2:19am 
LOOOOOOOOVEEEE IT!!!!!!!!!!!
i would certanly pre order just for support :D:D:D

variagamesllc  [author] Sep 20, 2014 @ 12:49pm 
@Vondred
It would seem that you are confused. Please read our kickstarter update: 34

ӍᴑҶɑ Sep 16, 2014 @ 7:30am 
So please tell me that you guys are working on the ACTUAL game that we greenlit and funded, and not some side project, or making more deals with other games to crossover with. I mean neat and all, and I do love what you guys are doing -- but I'd love to see more progress on ReVeN soon..
Fishman465 Sep 10, 2014 @ 11:50pm

Everybody this makes me think of system shock and metroid had a baby! looks great!
Angry Video Game Noob Aug 10, 2014 @ 5:33am 
Early access?!
OH GODS NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!
variagamesllc  [author] Aug 9, 2014 @ 7:37pm 
Surprise everyone! We just released ReVeN: XBridge! A prequel to ReVeN. It is in its beta so their are some features that aren't available just yet. XBridge takes the form of a topdown cosmic space shooter that has you flying in SyReks Ship (The X-Saber) Take a look!

http://xbridge.clay.io/

X-Bridge will take you through events that happen right before ReVeN. You will be introduced to pivotal characters and play through key events that lead the story to where it all begins in ReVeN.

any chance of an beta release or an early acces this year?
Angry Video Game Noob Jul 1, 2014 @ 5:07pm 
Похудевший Боб и пополневший Джей встряхнут рынок Метрований!
variagamesllc  [author] Jun 15, 2014 @ 7:13pm 
We can't wait to show everyone of you more of whats to come! :)
atcpenguin Jun 15, 2014 @ 7:04pm 
Ok then, I fully retract my comment. This game looks really cool and Iwill most definately be purchasing it!
variagamesllc  [author] Jun 14, 2014 @ 10:33pm 
@atcpenguin: We are giving the player the option to swap abilities through the menu or in real time without pausing. If we had swapped abilities outside of the menu then no one would have been able to follow what was going on in the video. :)
atcpenguin Jun 14, 2014 @ 12:29am 
This seems really cool, but it seems like there is a lot of sifting through menus to activate abilities. I'm not a huge fan of that

Can you say Metroid clone? I knew you could. :)
Phazeina Apr 5, 2014 @ 4:37pm 
Syrek in these lands is an Easter dish made from milk and eggs. BUT there is a meaty variant of it as well! So, aside of a cheesy costume, you might give him an alternate meatboyish costume.
That aside. The game looks gorgeous. Looking forward to it!
variagamesllc  [author] Apr 1, 2014 @ 2:29pm 
Hahaha! That is great!! Maybe we'll give him an alternate cheese costume! XD
Corvid Apr 1, 2014 @ 10:34am 
Just thought you guys'd be interested to know thhat Syrek is apparently a type of cheese.
