Description

Skyrift is an action-filled arcade game, in which you, the last robot of its kind, defend the planet against mighty alien forces. You can think of it as a 3D bullet hell game where you deflect projectiles to damage your enemies. Fight for your reputation as a worthy defender and measure your skills against others! Each destroyed spaceship grants you points, depending on how powerful it is. Ultimately, your goal is to survive for as long as possible and reach the highest score you can. Your high score is uploaded to a global leaderboard, which can be seen in the game and on the official Skyrift website. Skyrift also features a dynamic soundtrack that responds to in-game actions and evolves depending on the enemies around you.

History

Skyrift’s development began in December 2018 by Florian Holl, a solo indie game developer. A small idea slowly evolved into a full and polished game. Skyrift’s development process has been documented in the form of devlog videos on Florian’s “Torchlight Games“ Youtube channel, which shows the evolution of the game.
