Experience the multiverse — and then blow up a small part of it — in Rift Loopers, a new twin-stick survival shooter that just released in early access on Steam. The $5 game challenges you to “fight your way through worlds lost to the insectoids on your mission to collect the resource needed for dimensional travel, the reality crystals. Dead or alive, your crystals will be returned to your dimension to be used to unlock additional weapons, characters and enhancements for your future loops.”
