Are you looking for the next fun game to play? If so, you might want to try Vibrant Venture out. This is a 2D action platformer that features four playable characters, each with two unique abilities that you can use at your disposal. What makes this title great is that you can change between characters at any time, allowing you to use specific abilities that may help you clear obstacles and other challenging environments.

Cardinal, for example , can jump again while he’s airborne. This is pretty useful when you’re trying to climb up areas that other characters cannot reach.

Developer Semag Games released a new patch just recently. Beta Update 1.5 introduces the new Assist Mode, a game mode that adds three modifiers to help make Vibrant Venture even more accessible than before. These are Hazard protection, death pit recovery, and infinite abilities. The last one is pretty cool as you no longer have to wait for cooldowns to use abilities again.

Aside from that, controller support has been added to the Level Builder. This lets you create entirely custom levels with a gamepad instead of the usual mouse and keyboard combo, which is great if you just want to relax on your couch while adding or removing stuff from your current project.
