Patch notes are imported from steam. There may be errors. This mostly exists so I can stay on top of them to update the features in our tags and scoring categories (which I do manually), but since many of you liked the idea of staying up to date with all the games in one place I'm working on making this data automated (right now I manually hit it every couple days) with better info and linking in with the game views.

There will be more data and proper atribution here (original author, steam link, original post date, etc) real soon, I promise. This is just like a technical test to see if they're coming in ok at all.

The Riftbreaker » Design a skin contest!

Hello Riftbreakers!

We have yet another competition for you! This time we ask you to unleash your creativity and give Mr. Riggs a nice, fresh coat of paint.

Plenty of skins to choose from already, but we can always do better. On a side note – we will change the way skin selection works.

We know that players love skins for their in-game characters. It allows them to express their personality and add a degree of customization into the game. Even if you can’t change the color scheme of individual items without modding game files, pre-determined skins still offer an alternative choice. While working on The Riftbreaker some of the most fun things we did was coming up with new skins. Some were inspired by our favorite games (bonus points if you can spot them), while others were completely outlandish ideas we thought could be funny (Mr. Piggs and Caticord immediately spring to mind).

Gold skin is unlocked by completing the game’s main campaign. It is one of our favorites. Simple, but effective!

Now we want to hear (and see) what you can come up with! The rules are quite simple:

  • Come up with a design for a new skin for Mr. Riggs. Look for inspiration in pop culture, your favorite games, series, or your own imagination. Simply design what seems fun to you!
  • Needless to say, but we will say it anyway – your entry must be in good taste and do not break Steam Terms of Service. No gore, adult-rated material, or mocking anyone’s ethnicity, religious or political beliefs.
  • Create a visualization of your skin idea. Use Paint, Photoshop, or any other image editing software to modify any of the existing Riftbreaker artworks. Alternatively, you can sketch your design by hand and scan it. You don’t have to make a working in-game skin – just a simple image is fine, but bonus points if you do decide to make a working skin 🙂
  • Do not change Mr. Riggs’ model geometry. You can change everything else. You want to have a giant screen in place of the cockpit visor? Okay! You want to turn the Mech into glass? Also cool! You can go absolutely wild, but the geometry of the mech must stay the same.
That’s all! Now, let’s talk about prizes.

The authors of the three designs we like the most will receive:

  • Steam keys for all EXOR Studios games. You can use them yourself or gift to someone else.
  • A care package full of EXOR studios gadgets, including a Mr. Riggs plushie.

Last but not least important – we are going to try to turn the top three designs into actual in-game skins. This will only happen if the authors give us explicit permission to use the design in-game and if it does not break any copyrights or trademarks, so go easy on logos.

Upload the visualization of your design to any image-sharing site and submit your entry in this thread for everyone to see here:

The contest will run until January 10th, 2024. We will announce the winners by January 12th, 2024..

One of the earliest mods for our game – Holy Skin by SenorRagequit. Be the light that shines in the darkness!
