Platformers generally rely on running and jumping, but Ryder features fast-paced levels in which you’ll be dodging, shooting and even riding enemies and obstacles, to take control of them!
‘The planning began at a game jam at home. The idea was to make a different platform game’, says Agustín Pérez Fernández, creative director of the game. ‘I was bored of playing the same: platformers tend to be based on jumping, so I wanted to see if I could achieve something different and that's when an idea came to mind, of a game based on riding and climbing things’.
Along with all these elements of gameplay comes a deep story of conspiracy and desertion, set in a retro-futuristic, post-apocalyptic world.
Quick gameplay: It’s easy to die, but also easy to retry!
A challenging game with no unfair difficulty
Classic and fun platformer controls: Jump, Double jump and Wall climb
Ride your bike, rockets and turrets, and other type of enemies to shoot and to use them as jetpacks.
Alternative challenges in every level: Optional collectable coins and minigames
Ryder is an immortal secret agent who worked as a time traveler for ages at MATH, the Multiverse Agency of Time and History, making himself sure that nobody dares to change the course of history. However, that time has passed and Ryder is a rebel now: he’s against MATH and fights for the destruction of the technology that allows time traveling so that events can take a natural course. Players will help Ryder in his last mission, the one that sets him free of his own immortal existence, but first he has to face every MATH’s robotic agent.
