Press release:
MELBOURNE – May 12, 2022.
The Melbourne-based (Australia) indie games developer Barrel Smash Studios, today announced with great delight and thrill that their tower defense/strategy/adventure game “Riftbound”, is now available for PC via Steam with a 10% launch discount for the first week.

Mastering magic is no small task, especially when a wicked Necromancer returns from an otherworldly prison to threaten all who stand in his way. Guided by the wise Great Oak, a young spellcaster must rise to the occasion and learn to harness their innate magical aptitude to fight back against the Necromancer’s skeletal legions and banish the evil forces from the realm.

Amass an army of evolving elemental creatures to stand against enemy forces in strategic, real-time showdowns. Discover an arsenal of over 40 spells, elemental evolutions, and combat combos while battling against fearsome Skeletal Berserkers, shambling Executioners, and rattling Bone Launchers to name a few, before facing off against bosses like a scythe-wielding Reaper.

Master the five schools of magic governing Aether, Air, Earth, Fire, and Water, using the elements to inflict status effects and turn the tide of battle. Freeze foes, stun skeletons, inspire troops, and more. Command the battlefield with your chosen defenders and manage strategy-changing upgrades to increase offensive and defensive capabilities, set Aether traps, and protect the magic seals from waves of encroaching enemies.

Complete over 50 stages across an array of difficulty options that provide a customized gameplay experience. Tackle 16 challenge missions to hone combat skills and earn rewards including upgrade points and mighty evolutions.

“I’ve spent thousands of hours modding classic strategy games throughout my career,” said James Thomas, Co-Founder and Lead Programmer, Barrel Smash Studios.

“With Riftbound, we’ve captured the customization afforded by iconic mods and expanded it into an action-packed lane defense game with tons of charm and challenge.”

Riftbound was developed with a wide range of accessibility options, including an innovative dyslexia text feature allowing wizards to change between fonts, letters, characters, and line spacing to improve readability.

Riftbound is now available on Steam for Windows PC for USD $19.99, with a 10% launch discount for the first week. It supports English, French, Italian, German, Spanish (Europe), Japanese, Russian, and Simplified Chinese.

For more information, please visit Riftbound’s official website, follow @BarrelSmashers on Twitter, and join the studio’s Discord community.
