In Revita, climb through an ominous clocktower and battle through a series of procedurally-generated encounters with foes and challenges in order to uncover lost memories and discover the mysteries of the melancholic world. Play as a nameless child with no sense of who or where they are and exchange health for upgrades as the game dares the player to play on a razor’s edge!  

“It’s been a long road to get to this point, I’m finally happy to release Revita after working on it for the past five years”, said Benjamin Kiefer aka BenStar, developer of Revita. “We’ve received really positive feedback during Early Access and can’t wait to share the unique arcade-inspired twin-stick experience with fans of the genre and newcomers alike.”  

Revita is a love letter to previous twin-stick, roguelite and platformer games, with a certain polish and charm that makes it stand out from the competition”, said Guillaume Jamet, Head of Publishing for Dear Villagers. “Playing Revita is a roller coaster adventure: it’s so fast, tense and addictive, you really feel like you’re playing at an arcade!
