Seongnam, South Korea — September 8, 2022 — Video game publisher and developer JOFSOFT has announced that electrifying cooperative third-person squad shooting indie game Rift Sweepers is now available on PC via Steam Early Access. As agile rifleman John or lethal sniper sharpshooter Simon, newly enlisted Rift Sweepers must travel across the fabric of reality via a time-traveling train to save existence from crumbling into ruin. Annihilate armies of unsightly brutes while getting paid, leveling up, and chowing down on delicious pizza. A third character, the gun-wielding James, will join the party soon, with more planned for full launch. Rift Sweepers was built in Unreal Engine 4.
In Rift Sweepers, players must band together, strategize, and fight to survive four perilous missions set in a cyber restaurant, the sewers, and – most terrifying of all – the subway. Eccentric monstrosities like supernatural goat wizards, fire-breathing dragons, oversized insects, ghastly clowns, and more thrive in these ominous corridors of time. On top of that, ruthless bosses lie at the end of each mission, each waiting for their next chance to sow further entropy.
Luckily, new recruits can collect miraculous pizza falling from the sky to replenish their energy and ammunition as they eviscerate the scourges of reality. When a mission is complete, players can visit the Rift Sweeper Headquarters (RSHQ) for licenses to enhance their arsenal and kill bigger, meaner beasts.
There’s also the lobby, which doubles as a bar sitting at the intersection of dimensionality. At the bar, recruits can select and upgrade their characters, choose a mission, socialize with friends, or buy drinks that confer increased HP, attack power, stamina recovery, and more while chatting with a friendly female bartender. Keep your mind on the mission, newbie!
- Enter the Demons’ Den: Decimate bizarre yet mighty brutes – including daunting goat wizards, fire breathing dragons, devilish clowns, and more – from around the cosmos.
- Dynamic Combat: Dodge incoming attacks and pinpoint weaknesses to swiftly destroy the opposition. Upgrade your arsenal through licenses obtained from the Rift Sweeper Headquarters.
- Cooperative Chaos: Assemble a team and unleash destruction across dimensions.
- Character Variety: Choose your role wisely. The rifleman, John, can move quickly and attack consecutively. The sharpshooter, Simon, can topple a beast with a perfectly placed shot. The demolisher, James, sows wanton destruction with his gatling gun and grenades.
- Mission Mayhem: Carefully strategize to complete objectives unscathed. Trudge through subways, sewers, and a cyber restaurant in four missions, each with bloodthirsty beasts lying in wait.
