Toki Tori Developer Two Tribes Unveils First Game Since Studio's Reboot: RIVE
Back in January, the indie studio Two Tribes, best known for the Toki Tori series, announced that the company was being rebooted. In short, Toki Tori 2+ took way longer to develop than expected and never achieved the sales the company needed to stay afloat. Parent company Two Tribes Publishing remained intact, but the development studio shut down and a new, smaller one was created. At the time, we were told that a "much smaller team" was working on the company's next game, " a 2D side scrolling shooter, which will be re-using the existing Toki Tori 2+ engine," thus decreasing development time. Today, Two Tribes finally unveiled what that new project is: RIVE.
RIVE is "the metal wrecking, robot hacking shooter" – a 2D shooter/platformer where "players learn to alter the behavior of their robotic enemies by collecting and uploading hacks." And it's all being created by a "base team of just three people." Check out the Announcement Trailer:
RIVE will be coming to PC via Steam and "all current consoles." No release date has been stated, but the game will be playable at Gamescom next month.
