RiffTrax: The Game, coming May 5th. Are you game?

I would be totally down with a Ninja Turtles style beat-em-up with stages based on movies. Mike, Kevin, Bill, and Disembaudio could team up to fight Dragon Sound, Rollergator, R.O.T.O.R…

I fear to think about the Rollergator level’s soundtrack…

Rifftrax has said it will play on Macs.

Seriously? That would be excellent!

Wondering what the achievements are…:thinking:

The game’s release in May will provide the real answer. But since it’s a reskin of What the Dub?!, its achievement list might provide some clues.

(the above link talks Xbox but the Steam and PlayStation versions have the same 30 achievements)

I was going to, but I never saw details. So if anyone gets something going, post it a few times!

I have great memories of trying to keeps riffs going with my friends during movie nights in college.

It’s still a little tricky to have a lot of friends over right now so I’m looking forward to getting some online riffing in!

They said this will be $9.99 in the comments of one of the last updates. That’s a pretty sweet deal.

Was just playing with a group on Twitch. They may have been young - lots of not really funny riffs involving words that are rightfully blocked on the Discorse? Oy.

If someone has a tutorial on how to get a Steam app downloaded & running on a Mac OR if how to broadcast a game to Twitch, that’d be awesome.

Like ‘What the Dub?’ the owner generates a room code that the other players connect via https://rifftrax.games/

Then the owner shares their screen via Zoom or the streaming platform of their choice.

Installing to Mac will be the same general process for installing anything from the Steam client that works on Macs (e.g., you buy and then it installs when you ask it to and where you told it to install content). Just remember that only one person needs to have a copy and they’ll be the “host” for that game; all other players just need the room code (and not their own copy of the game).

How to stream to Twitch is… a tutorial in of itself and there are a lot of ways to go about it. Unless you already have a Twitch account, it might be easier and faster to use Zoom or Discord. Ignore the integrated Twitch chat voting feature if you don’t already have an established stream with subscribed viewers – don’t forget that the game itself provides 12 audience slots.

And they’ve added a bunch more clips recently.

I really want to play this, but it requires friends.

I tried to schedule a game night here on the forum, back in September, but only one person showed up.

You could try again, I guess. I’d be up for it.

The game’s core is a recycled What the Dub?!, which can be armed with custom clips, captions, and sound snippets rather easily. There are some imposed limits but nothing that makes the endeavor a chore (for example, sounds are limited to 5 seconds or less).

Game’s lacking the Rifftrax content you love the most? Feel like breaking the boundaries and riff clips outside of the Rifftrax and public domain realm? You can totally make it so.

Well, unless you’re strictly on console. Sorry, console players.

I’d love to join…but I only have the Xbox version…which, I believe, means everyone has to be in the same room to see the clips. :slightly_frowning_face:
