Tuesday, October 28th.
The US-based (L.A.) indie games developer and creative technology studio Kluge Interactive today announced with great delight and excitement that the free “Spiral Mode” update (the update debuts with a new stage and a new song) is now available for their freestyle dancing VR rhythm game “Synth Riders” to players on Oculus Quest, PlayStation VR, Steam, and Viveport.
“Spiral Mode” puts a new twist on familiar gameplay, as the playfield spirals around the special new cylindrical stage. Guide walls and arrows lead the player through twists and turns, as they lean their whole body from side to side to follow the line of play. The
new mode aims to give players an adrenaline rush as they unlock three intensities, each with more powerful turns and challenges to match. “Spiral Mode” is available for use in every song and difficulty, with most modifiers and in all areas – including Multiplayer.
Kluge Interactive celebrates this new release with an addition of a new, free song “Go!” by the incredible synthwave duo, Dance With The Dead. Just in time for Halloween, this killer blend of synth and guitar will get players ready to turn their Synth Riders world upside down. With the addition of “Go!”, Synth Riders’ music selection now features 55 free songs. An additional 30 tracks are available as DLC, including hits from Muse, The Offspring, and Caravan Palace.

“I’m excited to enhance our players’ experience even more with this twist on our gameplay, it’s not like anything we’ve seen in a VR rhythm game before! Personally, I love playing Spiral Mode because the mechanic gives me a feeling of challenge and speed that reminds me so much of skating – one of my favorite hobbies! I hope that Spiral Mode will find many fans among Synth Riders players.” – Abraham Aguero Benzecri – Creative Director
“Spiral Mode” continues a long tradition of regular, free updates from the development team that excite players and give them new, fresh ways to enjoy the game. Since its release on Steam more than three years ago, Synth Riders has tripled the number of available songs, introduced 360° of freedom in “Spin Mode”, and launched 10-player Multiplayer with Power-Ups.
The new “Spiral Mode”, a new stage, and a new song by Dance With The Dead are coming on October 28th as a free update for all Synth Riders players on Oculus Quest, PlayStation VR, Steam, and Viveport.
You can follow Synth Riders on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram, and join their Discord community for more news and events.
