Survive the Rift is a side-scrolling, Rogue-Lite, Shoot ‘Em Up with procedurally generated levels, unlockable ships, mods, upgrades and loot making each run unique and often unpredictable.

The game was inspired by 16-bit era scrolling shooters, but integrates modern rogue-lite features and game mechanics.

Early Access Features:

• Seven ships are available at launch, each ship offers a different starting weapon and stats

• Over 70 items including ships, modules, pods, and weapons currently available in the Early Access build

• Three fully playable sectors with multiple stages

• The player can choose their own path, opting for a potentially easier route, or choosing a more difficult path

• Levels are procedurally generated offering a significant level of replayability

During the early access period we will be providing regular updates and working with the community to improve all aspects of the game.
