RTAG rise


RTAG rise (or Retro Active Gamers rise) is a controller supported, 4 player co-op enabled, trial and error based platformer. The game follows Tim and Milo as characters of their own tale as they maneuver around the dangerous trials and hazards to reach their goal. RTAG rise features a story mode and an arcade mode, allowing you to either follow the story via dialog and cut-scenes or jump directly into the rage inducing action.

- Open choice level selections

- Controller support

- 4 player Co-op (currently same machine)

- Collection of mini games (best played with friends... hmm... drinking games???)

Due to the nature of the game, it's difficulty will rise exponentially with every new player joining the game-play, thus a limited revival system is set in place to aid in the challenges. it is also a premium class troll tool - exercise with caution.

You can follow the project on the Retro Active Gamers channel on Youtube

RTAG rise

Do you want to test the thread of your friendship in an all out death-fest? RTAG rise may just be the game for the job.

This is a 4 player co-op game evolving around the tale of Tim and Milo as characters of a story that's been brewing for the past 3 years. Take controls of the characters in a tremendously annoying journey of death and rage. You haven't known betrayal until the 3 of you are at the finish like and the 4th player dies on a spike.... A SPIKE!!!!!! This game is a test of friendship bond and endurance.

MECHANICS:


Thus far we've explored the most natural feeling navigation mechanic which letting yoyu amneuver aroudn the obstacles with a fun twist (gravity, wall jumps, wall slides, slide blocks preventing jumping and the ability to jump off players as a special... we'll.. you'll see :D)

We have implemented a revival mechanic for co-op modes as not only do the levels exponentially become more difficult with each level, the overall challenge becomes much... MUCH more annoying and tedious when you play with friends. Remember that the chain is only as strong as the weakest link... and in out case you will be tempted to beat that weakest link with your controller.

Oh yeah, it's controller enabled.

imagine this with 4 players

BONUS:


To exploit the feel of our platformer gameplay mechanic, we will be using it extensively within bonus mini games, and boy do we have some ideas. After playing the game with you friends, you will realize just how easy it is to break the bond even between best friends, and the mini games will be your outlet. Showcase the superiority of your skills while absolutely annihilating your friends in an all out pvp action and survival mini games.

We are actually implementing Online Co-Op now. A lot of People demanded it and it seems that a lot of "NO-votes" on steam green-light came from us only doing local co-op at the time. Since the game offers full controller support, players will be able to have several configurations to play with each other like 4 players on same computer (local) all 4 players playing over internet (online) and even have 2 players on one PC and player 3 and 4 connect over internet. Figured might as well make some flexibility if we're doing online.

Ouh, amazing, I'm really happy about the cross multiplayer online-local thing, as much as I like online multiplayer, I prefer local multiplayer, as I love playing with my brother, but this type of multiplayer is amazing, I wonder why not too many games use it

It's a programming task that is marginally tedious that brings only small added value to a game for most devs to bother with figuring it out. I figured it out way during one of my test games so I'm implementing it now.
