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. 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.

Games with roguelike elements have recently had a large jump in popularity. However, most players find roguelikes hard to jump into: it is usually exceedingly complex in UI and game rules. Risk of Rain aims to revitalize the genre with stylized graphics and an intuitive gameplay scheme that teaches itself, rather than having to be taught.

The three main goals for our game are simple:

1. Design a game that is randomly generated every play-through, to keep replayability high and fresh.

2. Time = difficulty. The longer you play, the harder the game gets. Keeping a sense of urgency keeps the game exciting!

3. 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 as 10 different characters, from the Commando to the Miner to the Engineer.
  • Fight over 20 different enemies and over 10 bosses, randomly chosen by the game with random abilities and powers.
  • Discover 13+ levels with different enemies, shrines, and chests on each one!
  • Recruit the help of 10+ drones, from missile drones to healing drones!
  • Unlock the lore of the game through the item and monster log!
  • Get new items and characters through achievements
  • Save your best highscores!

"Looks like a bad platformer game that's been shrunk down to micro size.

Not very appealing. Needs better graphics. Doesn't appear commerically viable for steam distribution." - Resolute, 2013. How wrong he was.

Good game!

Lets make a.... suggestion
Lets think that the current game uses 720X480
Maybe its better if it has (even) more effects nor 920X720
(dat resolution :D )

Just figured out this game came from greenlight which is surprising cus most of the games that get released never get my interest and look, the game was funded 340% higher than it required that's an impressive feat for this:muney:
