Are you ready to add your own commentary to some of the entertainment industry’s worst movies? Then it’s time for Rifftrax! It’s a party game that lets you and up to six others turn terrible films into comedy gold!
Rifftrax: The Game works similarly to how You Don’t Know Jack does now. Rather than everyone playing on one console with several controllers, players join using their smartphones or other internet-connected devices. Players can either create their own riffs or select pre-recorded ones from the Rifftrax team.
- Featuring over 250 movie clips from the RiffTrax library including fan favorites such as Rollergator, Attack of the Supermonsters, Plan 9 From Outer Space, and more!
- Featuring two exciting ways to play! Write your own riff and watch your comedy genius come to life via text-to-speech. Or leave it to the pros and choose from over 2,000 expertly crafted riffs from the RiffTrax team.
- Play head-to-head with up to 6 players using any internet connected device as controller. An additional 12 audience members can also play along.
- Support for remote games, cross play, and voice chat.
- Twitch integrations that can get your whole chat in the action with Twitch Chat voting, additional moderation, privacy, and content tools.
- Launch price of $9.99 across platforms!
If you’ve not checked out Rifftrax before, you should. If you’re a fan of the Mike Nelson days of MST3K or disappointed by the recent reboot, I say this. Mike Nelson, Kevin Murphy (Tom), and Bill Corbett (Crow) riff on everything from old MST3K throwback films to newer fare. Of course, plenty of educational films get roasted, too.
My favorite Rifftrax video is Santa And The Ice Cream Bunny. However, the team’s riff on the Star Wars Holiday Special is pretty good, too.
