Move to the Rhythm with Friends in New Multiplayer Mode for ‘Synth Riders’
Since launching on Oculus Quest, Synth Riders has charmed its neon-bathed way into many a VR rhythm gamer’s heart. And today, players on both Quest and the Rift Platform are in for a treat as developer Kluge Interactive releases a free Multiplayer Update!
Players can create private and public lobbies for up to five players. While the lobbies are social, all mics are off once a song starts. Each lobby keeps score of the total number of wins per player, while the leaderboard lets you scroll through multiple song scores to keep tabs on the competition.
How would you describe Synth Riders?
Njna: Every song in Synth Riders is an experience. Some of them feel like you’re an artist painting the song before you, flowing down the rails and pointing out the musical notes of interest along the way.
Ichderhorst: Synth Riders is a rhythm dance game for all players, good or bad, that love a challenge or some fun dancing.
What’s your favorite part of the game?
Njna: I love the emotional release of dancing in VR—of knowing the movements of a song and its layered rhythms and harmonies to such an extent that you can feel the game when you hear the song outside of VR. Dancing to what the musical artist and the map creator created feels like art, and that’s beautiful.
Why are you excited for the new multiplayer mode?
Njna: I look forward to crushing the souls of my prey and seeing their scores crumble before me. I'm actually really looking forward to playing online with so many of the great friends I’ve made in the Synth Riders community and to having a chance to compete with them in real time.
Ichderhorst: To challenge good players and talk in-game when we play about parts of the maps, how great they are, and how good I am at mastering them.
