Riot: Civil Unrest – Now Available on Steam Early Access

Merge Games a privately-owned video game publisher, is proud to announce the release of Riot – Civil Unrest into Early Access on Steam.

Developed by Leonard Menchiari and IV Productions, Riot – Civil Unrest is a real-time riot simulation that recreates some of the world’s infamous riots. Events include: The Italian NoTav opposition to a planned high-speed rail link between Turin and Lyon; The Arab Spring uprising in Egypt; Indignados, the anti-austerity protests in Spain; and Keratea, the landfill fuelled struggle against the government in crisis-racked Greece. In addition, there are over 30 single scenarios including London in the UK and Oakland in the USA.

Players will be able to choose to play as the rioting masses, venting their frustration and anger against the system and the police. Alternatively, players may decide to take on the role of law enforcement using crowd-control strategies to quell the hordes and regain order. As the Police, players can add additional tactical, assault, arrest, or ballistic units. Acting as the Rebels, players can add additional leaders whose influence affects rioters around him. Further items can be added too, such as DIY rocket launchers and documentarists.

Players are encouraged to experience the scenarios from both the police and protesters’ points of view in order to better understand both sides. It should be noted that while Riot – Civil Unrest simulates over thirty civil disturbances it remains politically neutral allowing the player to research and make up their own minds about the cause and effects of each encounter. Players will quickly learn that using force and violence works short term but patience and passive actions yield more positive outcomes.

In Addition to the four campaigns, Riot – Civil Unrest also includes one-off scenarios from historical hotspots from around the world; such as Ukraine, London, Brazil, Oakland and France. The game also includes a two/four player versus mode in which friends can battle against one another in a bid to gain public support as they fight for their cause. Before each game begins players will be given an introduction regarding the reasons for the unrest and clear objectives of what both factions are expected to achieve.

Riot – Civil Unrest is available as an Early Access title priced $12.99 / €12.99 / £9.99. The game will receive regular updates based on both the dev team’s schedule and the community’s input.
