Adrift hits Kickstarter

Risen Games Decides to Crowdfund the Next Game

nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp; Norwood, MA--- September 24, 2013---Risen Games, one of the newest studios in the Boston area, has announced their next game, Adrift, which is now seeking funding on Kickstarter.

nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp; Adrift is a unique mix of cooperative play, tower defense, dual-stick shooter, and a little dash of RPG.nbsp; The game pits a team of 1 to 6 players against the hazards of space, including deadly asteroids and roving pirates, which they must repel in order to protect their tiny colony ship.nbsp; With three different classes to choose from and each with their own special weapons and abilities, Adrift is designed with play style customization in mind.nbsp; There are many strategies to the game, for instance, a player can spend all their points on towers and have an ironclad defense, or they can sink them all into their ship and abilities to become a juggernaut themselves.

nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp; Adrift will be available on PC, Mac, and Linux if successfully funded, and will fully support cross-platform play.
