    Hey everyone,

    I've been working on this game for a long time now and will hopefully be launching fairly soon! Raion Live is a mobile platform game for iOS, think of it as a cross between Sonic & Geometry Dash. It's a simple tap to jump game with built-in momentum-based physics. There's a heavy focus on speedrunning and increasing your best time, including multiplayer racing.

    A short blurb about the game:

    "Raion is so intent on saving the universe that he is always running, all you need to do is tap to make him jump! The trick that sets the amateurs apart from the pros is momentum: Cleverly utilising curved paths will give you an edge over your competition and allows you to discover shortcuts and tricks in your quest to beat the clock. Raion will encounter many enemies and obstacles during his missions and each one has the potential to slow him down or even put him out of action. Raion's levels are handcrafted for the player, complete with a vibrant electronic soundtrack that emotes energy and momentum. In a world built to slow you down, unleash yourself!"

    I joined the Sonic Retro forum a little over 10 years ago and have (mostly) lurked ever since, I know how hard everyone works here and how much they care about Sonic. I'd love to know what you think of the short trailer so far ������

    Thanks SO much for the kind words guys! I'll update with progress here.

    If anyone is interested in hearing some of the game music I just edited the original post to include the following Soundcloud link:

    @Dark Sonic: If the iOS version is successful enough I'll for sure look at Android!

    Looks pretty cool. I'd love to check out it, but I don't have an iOS device.

    Also, is it "rey-on" or "rye-on"? I'm assuming the latter.

    Thanks! Hopefully I'll be able to get it on Android soon. And you are right, it's "Rye-On"!

    Here's a gameplay video of one of our stages, Mystic Mountain.

    The idea is you need to outrun the purple Okaku wave which is chasing you. If it touches you that's game over!

    Would be great to know what you all think.

    Thank you! Not yet, the game is pretty much complete but we're waiting for some more details on Apple Arcade/WWDC to guide our decisions about launch.

    I can't wait to get it out there!

    This game looks pretty fun. Add me to the list of those who would download it should it ever come to Android.
