Rise & Shine Releases in a Week

Rapid action, fast pace combat, and a small frail child named Rise who keeps resurrecting. This is what the basics of Rise & Shine are in the latest game by Adult Swim Games. A run and gun shoot ’em up for the PC and Xbox one which is releasing in a week. The story is simple: you have received a gun that allows you to resurrect an infinite number of times called Shine and now you have to protect your home. However, unlike Metal Slug and Alien Hominid where your only protection was the reflexes in your body and those quarters in your pocket, Rise & Shine requires planning, thinking, and an appreciation for those infinite respawns.

The game looks gorgeous and Rise is such a cute child, for a game where you’re meant to shoot everything on the screen, it’s quite a contrast. But don’t let the type of game fool you; it isn’t just about running and shooting, it’s also about using all your bullets and their effects to the best of your ability. This requires precision and dexterity and can be seen from the Rise & Shine Bullet Tips trailer which can be seen here:

As the video states, it’s all about outsmarting your enemies, and outgunning them. You’ll have multiple bullets and different abilities which can be used in conjunction with these to activate doors and different contextual scenarios. It’s up to you to figure it out. Yet, gunning isn’t the only thing that will catch your eye, as the game is loaded with lawyer-friendly cameos from characters that we’ve all come to know and love. Take a look at one of the released images to see how many you can recognize.

Only one more week until release and we can all experience the magic of saving Gamearth a world where videogame characters come to life.

Rise & Shine releases on Steam and Xbox One on the 13th of January.
