Koya Rift is an action-packed platform shooter that is built around circular gameplay; which emphasizes heavy replayability by feeding the player a stream of short term goals that don’t end. In Koya Rift, the player must enter a hostile planet and destroy an alien race so the planet can be colonized. Each round, the player is dropped off at the surface and must venture into procedurally generated caves, earning upgrades and buying units as he goes along. The difficulty adjusts precisely to the skill of the player over time, providing them with a consistent challenge.

The first part of the summer update is finished and ready to be played! (and tested... there are some bugs and probably a few balance issues that need to be found)
The update has been uploaded to the BMT servers, so re-visiting your download link should allow you to download version 1.05. Make sure the file that you're downloading says KOYA_RIFT_1_05. If you have any problems, email me at sunnykatt [at] live.com and we can fix whatever went wrong.
The update is now out on Desura!
