February 23, 2021 - Taipei-based indie developer Busy Toaster Games and video game publisher Leoful today released their manic terrain bending adventure Georifters, is available now on PlayStation™Store in the Americas, Europe, and Asia. The game is set to launch this year in Japan.

The PlayStation 4 version includes content from all previous updates, such as Time Challenge mode, Match Arena mode, new costumes, and much more.

Georifters is a platform manipulating adventure game where players use 3D spatial reasoning to navigate 2D situations; why jump across gaps when you can use your ability to close them? A wall of spikes in your path? No problem, spin them out of your way. Is a pesky enemy getting you down? Crush them with the ground they are standing on! Push, flip, twist, or turn the terrain to overcome challenges and battle competitors in hundreds of stages in single-player, co-op, or multiplayer modes with up to 4 friends. Unlock new skills, costumes, heroes, and much more in this unique ground bending 3D platformer.

With six fantastical worlds consisting of over 30 levels with 300+ stages in total. Discover seven different heroes along the way, each with their own individual special way of manipulating the terrain. Use these skills to unearth hidden items, unlock power ups to upgrade your champions’ unique abilities and customise their look with over 50 different costume combinations to choose from.

About Georifters
Most platformer games have the player run, jump, and navigate around the platforms or under obstacles; Georifters, however, gifts the player with the ability to manipulate the platforms in a platformer! Push walls, flip the ground, punch portals, spin platforms around you, or your friends, and that’s just a few of the creative ways you can interact with this unique and strange world.

Each hero in Georifters lives, literally, in their own bubble world, but one day, strange rifts begin appearing in each of the worlds, followed by weird creatures wreaking havoc and stealing the very air you breathe! You must help Candy to venture out of her bubble world and embark on a ground bending adventure spanning the different worlds, meeting other heroes along the way and inspiring them to leave their isolated worlds, to accept and understand each other’s differences and join you on your journey, to fight together and change the fate of their worlds.

Georifters Main Features
Georifters includes a comprehensive story mode with over 6 fantastical worlds for you and a friend to team up with and complete in couch co-op. You can also enter the “Battle Arena”, a couch competitive mode, where up to 4 players on the same system can challenge each other in a variety of different levels and battle settings. Unlock heroes, mix-and-match skin parts, weapons, and upgrades as you travel through the 300+ stages the game has to offer.
