In true dungeon-crawling style, Riverbond takes you on a journey through memorable worlds where you battle monsters, find treasure and become the hero. We wanted to channel the nostalgia of playing games from the 16-bit era and infuse it with fast and fluid controls for maximum action! Riverbond lets you choose your play style by letting you select from a ton of melee or ranged weapons to fight waves of enemies, take down huge bosses or completely decimate everything in sight.
It was also announced that there will be plenty of skins from other games added to the game, including Drinkbox Studios own Juan from Guacamelee, Lover Mu from Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime, and Robot 5 from Cococumber’s previous game Planet of the Eyes.
