The top-down 2D shooter Riskers is now available on Steam. A mix of gunplay and driving, Riskers takes inspiration from the original Grand Theft Auto (1997) and Hotline Miami (2012).
In Riskers, you take on the role of ex-con-turned-lowly-garbageman Rick Paradis. After finding a briefcase filled with money and deciding to keep the cash, Rick must now fight to survive as he is hunted down by thugs who are out to get what is rightfully theirs. Things quickly take a personal turn as Rick’s brother becomes a casualty. He must now make things right, even if it means breaking the law once again - using an arsenal of weapons including shotguns, pistols, automatic rifles, and sniper rifles, of course. And thanks to the game’s day and night cycles, he'll possibly be taking his battle into th enight as well.
Shota Bobokhidze, the lead developer, said “Riskers pays homage to the types of games I used to play while growing up in Georgia (the country). My main design pillar was to give players enough gameplay variety to cater to most play styles. Riskers is a game for everyone – whether you enjoy racing or shooting bad guys.”
Featuring a mix of genres in an open world setting, Riskers is now available on Steam.
