Toki Tori dev reveals new 2.5D shooter Rive

Mech it or break it.

Dutch indie developer Two Tribes has announced its new project - a 2.5D platforming shooter titled Rive.

Headed to PC and unnamed consoles in early 2015, the part-platformer, part-shooter is the work of just three people.

Rive tasks you with controlling a diminutive robot through a series of 360-degree environments. You can shoot enemies - or alternatively reprogram them by collecting and uploading hacks.

Two Tribes is best known for its platformer Toki Tori and its sequel, both of which have received positive reviews.

Watch the first footage of Rive below.
