'Reventure' Plans To Leave Early Access Next Month - Trailer

by Rainier on May 20, 2019 @ 10:20 a.m. PDT

Reventure is a choose your own adventure book in the shape of a nonlinear 2D platform/puzzler with 100 different endings.

Reventure starts out from the classic monomyth premise: "You are a hero, the princess is in danger, go rescue her!" but it quickly gets more complicated than that - until it completely diverges into something completely non-standard.

The gameplay takes place in short-lived runs. You start with a clear goal in mind, but the game throws at you some button, trap, treasure or enemy that will make you deviate from your path into a completely new situation. You'll also discover something new on the process and end up your story with a feeling of "What if I had done THAT instead?".

That feeling will drive your next goal, closing the loop over and over and wrapping up a surprisingly addictive loop.

On the first runs, the game is all about exploration. When you start knowing your whereabouts, it smoothly transitions into a completionist experience, where you want to achieve every possible ending. As you approach the late game it transforms once again, this time into a puzzle platformer where you have to carefully plan your journey in order to discover the more exotic endings.


Key Features:

  • It features a dynamic story system in a "groundhog day" fashion, but with persistent effects.
  • A Twitch integration enables users on a streamer's chat to take control of the hero's dialogs.
  • The world stays almost the same, being the player the one that changes after every run.
  • If a character dies, it is for good. A new character will take over and the story will progress.
  • The original sound track (available here) features more than 15 original themes.
  • Under that innocent, pixelated, look hides an indie beast with more than 10 hours of content.

Reventure will be available for PC (Steam) on June 4, 2019 for $5.99.
