Rifter retro platformer still available with discount

rifter retro platformer still available with discount for linux mac windows

Rifter retro platformer is still going strong with a discount, available to Linux, Mac and Windows. Also releasing last week, my bad, but the reviews on Steam are a solid 96% Positive.

Rifter is an acrobatic platformer also full of classic 80’s neon. Which includes an infusion 80’s synthwave soundtrack too. All thanks to the one developer behind IMakeGames.

So players have to run, swing, smash and dash at exhilarating speeds. All on a quest to discover the secrets of a shattered world. Which is very fast and as tough-as-nails.

Personally I have not played the game. But the whole concept reminds of Speedrunners. But with more obstacles and challenges. Which would be epic as a multiplayer, but sadly gameplay is only singleplayer. So thanksfully the game still on sale
