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.

Crypt of the Necrodancer » Rift of the NecroDancer welcomes Klei as its new publisher for a 2024 release

Hey folks! We wanted to keep you in the loop about what’s going on with Rift of the NecroDancer! We have 2 pieces of big news to share about today:

  1. Rift is now being published by our good friends at Klei
  2. Rift of the Necrodancer is now targeting a 2024 release

Below are some answers to a couple questions!

Q: Why 2024?

A: The game is actually in really good shape right now, but we realized that we want to take some extra time to make it really SING.

We’ll also be able to double down on what makes the game great by adding more Rhythm Rifts for launch!

Q: Why Klei?

A: Klei originally published Crypt of the NecroDancer, and we trust them with our lives. For real. Like 10/10 ❤️ Their support is giving us that extra time we need to get Rift to the finish line.

Q: So when is your new release date?

A: We don’t have an exact date yet, but we’re looking at the first half of 2024. We’re hoping to have a release date for y’all after the holidays. 🙂

We know you’re highly anticipating this game. We’ll be sharing more Rift content leading up to launch, including more news about the INSANELY talented musicians involved! You can also expect a free demo in a future Steam Next Fest, and a new demo at PAX West 2023.

All in all, thank you for all your support and your continued hype for Rift of the NecroDancer, and another big thank you to Klei for allowing us to take the time we need to make this game a real stunner. We appreciate you all endlessly.
