Because there were mentions of the game being abondoned by its developer - it's not!
The last development blog entry about the kickstarter-promised artifact system is only 9 days old ( riskofraingame.com/blog-12514/ ).
But even without some of the promised kickstarter features it's one of the most amazing games of 2013. Making your way towards the last level and picking up dozensread more of random items which make each playtrough unqiue is as challenging as addicting.
The coop is incredible fun - and was added as a bonus feature without anyone pledging knowing about it. It has some flaws from time to time, but nothing gamebreaking (mostly synchronize hiccups).
I really do recommend this game!

This is seriously great. The characters all feel very different, and you will find one that feels right to you. My only real complaint is that it can drag on a bit at times and the interface isn't as informative as it could be.

I've sunk dozens of hours into this game, both solo and with friends, and it's a great time I can recommend to anyone with some tolerance for frustration. This is a game in which players are running, shooting, jumping, slashing, dodging, triggering powerful special equipment and getting killed in horrible ways while enemies of varying sizes and natures are spawning all over withread more ever-increasing frequency and power, often imbued with special powers. It's chaotic, frantic and often hilariously unfair, albeit not without occasional moments of contemplation, walking past monumental backgrounds while an excellent soundtrack plays.
+ Gameplay feels great
+ Very challenging, highly skill-based
+ High variety of characters and items
+ Great music, visuals and writing
+ New features still coming
- Only a handful of maps
- Extremely random difficulty
- Hard to learn at first
- Fidgety online multiplayer
The game is best played via online multiplayer, several friends and proper team tactics. And while it may be tempting to go straight for the boss and finish a run after 30 to 90 minutes of playing, the real challenge lies in re-playing levels with constantly growing difficulty and seeing how long one can last.
