Rumble in the Void was a 2d-Arcade-Topdown-Space-MMO-Shooter. Servers were operated by MightyGames (Germany), Wireplay (UK) and GOA (France) in the late 90s. A small community of enthusiasts have made several attempts to recreate a game server compatible with the game client to be able to play this hidden gem once again...
Sadly this was never to be, but we here at Tweek Studios (who by the way used to love the heck out of RITV!) have taken it upon ourselves to revive this incredible game! Without having a working server to run the original game, we decided to re-create the game entirely (and with it, its own custom server and code)!
It is currently been worked on by a small team of RITV enthusiasts, it is extremely Alpha right now but it is live! We could really do with any help with the server coding that you could provide. We're using Node.js and Socket.io.
We're very interested in bug-fixing so if you do decide to pay our part of the universe a visit, please do leave us any feedback (especially bugs). You can post them here or at:
We have our own dedicated server host (if you see Qui/Kwee in the game, give him a massive thanks from all of us!) but do expect crashes, bugs and unexpected downtime. You can have a look at the game so far right here:
Holy heck, I think I actually made a breakthrough!
I went back to the 90% complete version and I not only managed to get the correct names to show (the ships already liked to show the correct ship in this version anyway) but I've got a sort-of highscore board going too!
Here are the points of view of all 3 users I pretended to have logged on. It's actually coming together!
(Also I know the resolution in this test version is back to being tiny, now that it works, I'll scale it back to 720 like the current version)
I'm so excited that something finally gave! I'll post some videos soon!
