Global video game publisher Leoful and Taipei-based indie developer Busy Toaster Games, today have gifted another content update for their terrain bending adventure Georifters. Here is a breakdown on what’s on offer:
– This ain’t no cosplay, its new costumes!
Each one of the seven heroes of Georifters have got a whole new set of fun and wacky Winter Outfits and (much less appropriate for this time of year) Swimsuit themed costumes. Each costume piece can be unlocked by playing through the game normally and then purchased with earned crystals. And they can be mixed and matched with original costumes.
And as you can see for yourself some of these Swimsuits are just weirder than weird. Dr. Schnoz has taken up a deep sea exploration hobby, while Chief has brought his chocolate ice cream fixation to a whole new level. Lex just acquired his snorkeling license and is now chilling out doing his own thing. As usual. Whatever. Don’t miss out on these awesome seasonal themed costumes!
– NEW ACHIEVEMENTS/BADGES
There’s no such thing as an overachiever. Which is why Georiters is getting even more achievements! These achievements are won playing the new game modes: Match Challenge and Match Arena. Some of them are challenging, yes, but don’t worry because others are even more challenging! But since your sense of pride and accomplishment can’t be purchased, you better suit up, sit down, and get to it!
– New ‘Match Arena’ game mode (X 12 NEW Levels)
Matches are the name of the game in the Match Arena. How it works is that 2-4 players go head-to-head or team-to-team in twelve new levels to see who can make as many matches as they can. Matches happen when you move a block into an Anomaly, the strange shapes that result from unstable fluctuations in the fabric of the space-block continuum. So far so good? Basically you’re trying to match everything you can before your opponents can. But if you’re the cheeky type you can “unmatch” what your opponent has matched. So you need to keep your wits about you as you smash, flip, roll, and crush your way through some fast paced matching mayhem.
– New ‘Match Challenge’ game mode (1p ~2p) (X 8 NEW Levels)
New game mode hot off the press! Again matches are the name of the game here and the game is for you alone, or with a friend, to move the blocks into all the Anomalies. If you don’t they will evolve into a much bigger problem, like when you forget about old food left in a refrigerator. Your job is to use your ingenuity and problem solving skills to manoeuvre those blocks into the strange shapes of the Anomalies. But be forewarned, some of these Anomalies are pretty strange. So where do I sign up, you ask? Well, stop asking and see for yourself!
This unique ground bending platformer asks players to use 3D spatial reasoning to navigate 2D situations; why jump across gaps when you can use your ability to close them? A wall of spikes in your path? No problem, spin them out of your way. Is a pesky enemy getting you down? Crush them with the ground they are standing on! Push, flip, twist, or turn the terrain to overcome challenges and battle competitors in hundreds of stages in single-player, co-op, or multiplayer modes. Unlock new skills, costumes, heroes, and much more in this unique ground bending 3D platformer.
Most platformer games have the player run, jump, and navigate around the platforms or under obstacles; Georifters, however, gifts the player with the ability to manipulate the platforms in a platformer! Push walls, flip the ground, punch portals, spin platforms around you, or your friends, and that’s just a few of the creative ways you can interact with this unique and strange world.
Each hero in Georifters lives, literally, in their own bubble world, but one day, strange rifts begin appearing in each of the worlds, followed by weird creatures wreaking havoc and stealing the very air you breathe! You must help Candy to venture out of her bubble world and embark on a ground bending adventure spanning the different worlds, meeting other heroes along the way and inspiring them to leave their isolated worlds, to accept and understand each other’s differences and join you on your journey, to fight together and change the fate of they’re worlds.
