VGNYSoft Publishes Risk System On Physical Media


VGNYSoft, a new company in the growing market of limited print-run video games, has announced their eighth and latest game in their lineup: Risk System. Preorders are now open on Playstation 4 and Nintendo Switch.

Risk System is a typical shmup with the goal of blasting everything you see while trying to avoid everything blasting you instead. The twist this time is that the points system rewards taking risks — the closer to the enemy you get before dispatching them, the greater the reward. “With the objection of most games being to avoid enemy attacks, Risk System lives up to its name by rewarding players who take risks,” says VGNY.

  • Increase your B-Meter & firepower quickly by flying as close to enemy fire as possible and absorbing their energy. The closer you fly, the more energy you net!
  • Fire your weapon while flying close to enemy fire and absorbing to perform powerful “Risk Shots”. Enemies destroyed by these powered up shots will turn into energy to power your shield. The best defense is a risky offense!
  • Fly like an ace pilot and utilize Barrel Rolls to quickly cover vertical space & modify your attack!
  • Unleash the Barrier Breaker once the B-Meter is full to inflict huge damage on everything in sight!
  • Playing for points is fun again as higher scores are awarded for explosive bursts of destruction and taking risks! Destroy multiple enemies at once and utilize “Risk Shots” to string together combos and increase your score multiplier!
  • Experience different facets and paths to the story based on your performance and actions taken during missions!

The store is offering two different versions of Risk System; the regular edition and a more limited version that will only have 1500 copies on PS4 and 3000 on Switch. (PS4 will only have 1500 copies period.) The most noticeable difference between the regular and limited Switch editions is the addition of a woman’s face to the packaging. Of course, the box looks better with the woman’s face on it and VGNY likely knows that. The cover will also have a metallic sheen and come with a certificate of authenticity and a 24-page book.

And there’s more: Anyone who slaps down a preorder within the first 24 hours will receive a pin depicting the vehicle you pilot in the game. We thought we’d be too late to report this part, but the notice is still on the product’s order page. It’s been a bit longer than 24 hours but you could still get a pin, who knows.

There’s no mention of a time limit for Risk System, so it’s more likely the sale will end when all copies are sold.
