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.
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.
