RIVE is an upcoming platforming shoot-em-up game created by the Dutch video game company Two Tribes for Wii U, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Microsoft Windows, OS X, and Linux, and is the first major release by the company after the company's downsizing and closure of their primary development team in late 2013, instead now culminating everything under a new much smaller company, while the founders still remain with the company. The game was unveiled on July 29, 2014, after a long time of quiet development of the game that originated as a 3D shooter for the Nintendo DS in 2005. The game itself will be smaller than Toki Tori 2+ was. The game will also feature a mission system and high scores for players to come back to after completing the game's story, and is planned to feature off-TV play on Wii U.
