Riverbond, the four-player shoot-and-slash dungeon crawler from Cococucumber, brings nostalgic adventure to Nintendo Switch later this year with a brand new world also coming to PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
Drop-in and out of Riverbonds fast-paced arcade action in solo and couch co-op, grabbing loot and smashing up a gorgeous voxel world. Featuring an all-star lineup of character skins from Psychonauts, Guacamelee!, and Enter the Gungeon, Riverbond captures the shoot-and-slash fun of classic dungeon crawlers with a modern twist.
Up to 4 players set sights on treasure in a stunning voxel world. Break apart enemies, objects, and environments in an eruption of cubes with real-time physics. Discover secrets and face foes across handcrafted levels and 8 whimsical worlds, including a world debuting on Nintendo Switch, and coming to PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC as DLC.
Grab loot, fight evil, a smash s**t in Riverbond!!
Face the evil threatening the land by choosing melee or ranged weapons for fast-paced combat to suit any play style. The quick arcade-like pace and responsive controls give the party a leg up on waves of mobs and exciting boss fights. With the retro spirit of classic hack-and-slash cooperative games, Riverbond marries the nostalgic genre with modern flair.
An enchanting score by acclaimed composer Ryan Roth (Void Bastards, The Beginner’s Guide, Starseed Pilgrim) adorns the adventure across glistening, snowy peaks and wondrous valleys. Don a variety of charming crossover skins like The Kid from Bastion, Shovel Knight, Raz from Psychonauts, Juan from Guacamelee!, and Bullet Kin from Enter the Gungeon.
“Riverbond is a homage to the 16-bit era and some of the best co-op memories we’ve ever made, but we’re also inspired and humbled by modern indies which hold a special place in our hearts, said Vanessa Chia, Co-Founder and Art Director, Cococucumber. By fusing classic arcade action with a modern approach to level design and co-op gaming, we hope to give families, friends, and every kind of adventurer a warm welcome on Nintendo Switch.”
