Indie news (April 18): RIVE / Chompy Chomp Chomp Party

Today’s Indie news:

  • RIVE
  • Chompy Chomp Chomp Party
  • VoxelMaker
  • Stone Shire


RIVEA few weeks ago, Two Tribes announced that RIVE was delayed to September… and would be their last game. Gamereactor recently had the opportunity to chat with Collin Van Ginkel, who explained that they have been making games for over 15 years. Unfortunately, they have reached the point where they might not want to spend another 15 years doing that.

RIVE was only supposed to take 6-9 months to develop, but it’s now been 2 years since they started, and the game will not be released until September. Right now, the team simply doesn’t feel like starting a new big project.
