The “pretty as a swinging sawblade” RITE released on July 6 to the delight of all platforming enthusiasts eager to go splat. Solo developer Pond Games, based in Australia, has whipped up an extra-special dish of death for those who relish landing that perfect leap. Backed by a surprisingly lovely aesthetic and a jammin’ soundtrack, RITE rewards failure with its stage presence alone. Pond Games describes their title with the following:
“RITE is a high-speed, precision platformer where you must conquer a series of challenging trials, a rite of passage for every Nim.”
Gameplay will feel familiar to players accustomed to a strangely nimble slab of bloody meat. Dodge and slide your way through challenges designed to…very quickly…end your run. 160 levels await your Nim–levels full of tantalizing coins and deadly obstacles. RITE launched for PC on July 6 and is available now.
