Koya Rift is an action-packed platform shooter that is built around circular gameplay; which emphasizes heavy replayability by feeding the player a stream of short term goals that don’t end. In Koya Rift, the player must enter a hostile planet and destroy an alien race so the planet can be colonized. Each round, the player is dropped off at the surface and must venture into procedurally generated caves, earning upgrades and buying units as he goes along. The difficulty adjusts precisely to the skill of the player over time, providing them with a consistent challenge.

In a sea of game bundle sites, what's the big deal about one more? The approach of IndieBundle is a different. We focus on three things for both the developers and the players: incentive, value and consistency...

This game has HUGE potential in my opinion....
i feel like if you could work on bettering the animations, like the way you player and the enemies move, and having the guns actually be held instead of floating there. Also round off the levels a bit more, and make them look a little better instead of just squares, that you could appeal to a much broader audience. Controller support could do wonders as well. I grabbed this in a Groupees bundle, looked pretty interesting. Cant say that im disappointed. Liking it so far.

Just need to say i did buy it !! BUT : This need Multiplayer 2 player split screen and same screen when close action ! Need to put an overall effort in the real time ( base creation thing :) ! To me , it is good right now, but need too much imagination to feel or understand the need of a hero in the game. And you should make a point system too ! yeah in singleplayer only. And it would be a hit !!

Unfortunately split screen isn't possible with this game, because the logic / rendering is too intertwined. :(
I would love to expand on the campaign one day. That would be cool indeed. Thanks for the suggestions!

That error, yes.

Went in and started a new game. Went in to try and recreate the error, and got this:

ERROR in action number 8 of Draw Event for object obj_control:
Trying to delete non-existing sprite.

Don't know itf that helps, either.

They're related to the same problem. For some reason there's a problem with the in-engine sprite management for some computers on this build. I'll let you know when I ship a build of the game later with the problem fixed.
