Risk of Rain is set in the distant future where space travel is as common as burritos. One space train was carrying some unusual cargo when, surprise surprise, something went wrong. It gets shot out of orbit and crashes on a mysterious planet. Now you and your pals get to hunt down the exit teleporter while trying to stay alive. Don't worry, it's really easy and no one's going to die. (Insert sarcasm marker here.)

More ways to enjoy a game with friends is always a good thing, but what exactly is this game? The words "rogue-like" get tossed around here and there to generally describe any game that features some RPG elements, randomly generated levels, and the death of your character means starting over again with nothing. Those features are present in Risk of Rain, but it has its own twist on things. You (and your friends, if playing cooperatively) are the sole survivor of a crashed space train on a distant planet. Your goal is to try and get off the planet as quickly as possible for the longer you wait, the tougher it becomes to make it to salvation. While you do gain levels and gold - which can be spent to acquire beneficial items that increase rate of fire, heal rate, and more - from killing the local fauna, those same creatures become stronger and stronger as your time in game progresses. There is a constant risk/reward factor in play here. Do you spend a little more time clearing out a level to gain more levels, gold, and items to prepare for the next level, or do you move on to keep the difficulty within limits you can handle? The choice becomes easier when you have friends to back you up, but only slightly.
