E3 2019: Riverbond Out Now On Xbox One (also on Game Pass), PS4, and PC

Cococucumber did a stealth release on us! Their co-op voxel dungeon crawlers Riverbond is out now on Steam, Xbox One, and Playstation 4. Better yet, if you’re a member of Xbox Game Pass you can download the game as part of the pass. Happy E3 everyone, it’s a magical time.

Voxel Couch-Coop Dungeon Crawler Riverbond Coming Out This Summer

Shown off at today’s Playstation State of Play, Cococucumber announced their couch-coop voxel dungeon crawler will be coming to PlayStation 4 this Summer. They then followed up saying it’ll also be out on Xbox One and PC. You can wishlist the game here on Steam.

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.



Road to EGLX: 2018 - Riverbond

Leading up to EGLX this year we’ll take a quick look at all the developers at the show. You can get tickets to EGLX here, and remember that Patron’s save 10%.

Next up in our road to EGLX is Cococucumber’s Riverbond, a co-op hack-n-slash in a voxel world. I got the play this at the last EGLX and had a lot of fun - easy pick up and play mechanics, and cool destruction. It’s coming to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC in 2019.

Cococucumber is a Toronto-based independent game studio, co-founded by Martin Gauvreau and Vanessa Chia. They are on a mission to create original games with a dash of charm and a striking visual style.
