RiffTrax: The Game Launches On PC And Consoles In May
Wide Right Interactive has announced that RiffTrax: The Game will release on May 5 for PC and consoles.
RiffTrax: The Game is a multiplayer party game in which players must compete to “make bad movies funny” and features 250 video clips from classic RiffTrax movies such as Rollergator, Attack Of The Supermonsters, and Plan 9 From Outer Space.
The party game also includes two ways to play. Players can either write their own riff and watch its words come to life with text-to-speech, or choose from over 2,000 riffs created by the RiffTrax team.
Up to six players can play together with any Internet-connected device as a controller, and an additional 12 spectators can play together. Integration with Twitch is also possible, with the ability to vote in chat for certain actions that affect the game. The game is very similar to the popular Jackbox party games, featuring a series of quiz-based games in a collaborative setting, as well as the same additional Twitch voting mechanic.
Wide Right Interactive is best known for its Emmy-nominated show Mystery Science Theater 3000, which features comedians Michael J. Nelson, Kevin Murphy, and Bill Corbett, each bringing their own riffing talents to the game.
