    I'm getting a deja vu. What was that other dev studio who made a great 2D platformer and then took on a 3D procedural stylized project, never to be heard from again? Like 5+ years ago?

    [edit] I remembered, it was Hitbox, the Dustforce devs. Still working, and apparently selling pieces of their code on Unity Store.

    Reminds me of the recently announced Momodora sequel. While I have my doubts on whether or not the transition from 2D to 3D will go well, I'm glad to see indie devs being ambitious and trying new things.

    What a substantive and insightful analysis. I read the same kind of vague claims 20 years ago, when everything suddenly had to be 3D and 2D was just too limited. The result: tons of turds and entire genres going the way of the dodo. If Risk of Rain 2 should turn out well, one can only hope that transitioning to 3D won't become the next big fad in the indie scene. Although it does make historical sense: if you're stuck reliving the glory days of the 80s and early 90s, it's only logical that you'd eventually move on to the mid-late 90s.

    Huh, the thread's a bit out of date. I'll list the last devblog if you won't mind.

    Just as a prototype already looks quite good!

    Q: I’m going to ask the real questions, is Sniper a man or woman? This is important because reasons.

    I'm really digging these new and remade enemy designs myself. But yeah I really hope Hopoo gets it right. Play testing is going to be a must.

    I don't remember, in RoR1 could you enter the game as a squad with your friends, or did it just throw you into multiplayer with some people? Because this game looks amazing for playing with a few friends and just chatting away while we deal with the level

    ROR1 had you mandatorily port forwarding via the Hamachis and Tunngles of the world so unless you joined some randy's hosted server, there is no matchmaking. When a game is starting all players (cpped at 4 but editing a .txt you can go further past that) get on a similar version of the game start screen, the Artifacts, Difficulty and Characters are picked and it's go time once everyone hits Ready. I haven't experienced ROR1 multiplayer much myself and it's a bit clumsy more often than not, as it wasn't taken in mind initially and it was added later on after release.

    It's headed by some playtest footage and it didn't copy somehow:


    Generally just looking plain great. There's a lot to do.

    You know, it is a bit weird when the interviewer is or at least seems as old as the age of the other two combined :D



    The guy's also going on about it a bit as well.

    First RoR was heavy gonk, the videos of this one makes it look like a worthy sequel. I'm going to allow myself to be hopeful about this one :bounce:

    Wow, just heard about this. Absolutely loved the first Risk of Rain, over 120 hours. I don't know what to think about this new format but I'll at least give it a try.

    In case anyone cares, Deadbolt is also excellent as Ivan says.

    Deadbolt isn't in the same genre as Risk of Rain but it's a great... stealth action game (hard to pinpoint the exact genre). Similar to Gunpoint but more action and less puzzle orientated. I highly recommend both.
