Risk of Rain is an action platformer/adventure game with randomized elements.
The game is set in the distant future, where space transportation is common. Space trains carry passengers and goods all across space. A particular space train, however, had some very special cargo. Through a series of unfortunate events, this space train gets shot out of orbit and crash lands on a mysterious planet.. with one survivor.
Risk of Rain is a tough-as-nails action platformer with rogue-like elements created by Hopoo Games, a design team comprised of two students:
- Paul Morse handles the game design and PR, and is currently attending the University of Washington studying computer science and finance.
- Duncan Drummond is the programmer and artist. He is also attending the University of Washington, studying Mechanical engineering.
The music for Risk of Rain was created by Chris Christodoulou.
