Rise and Shine Small ImageRise and Shine Large Image Games

Rise & Shine Now Available for Xbox One

When we started developing Rise & Shine three years ago we had the intention, as we always do, of making an obsessively polished experience for gamers to enjoy.

We created the game to be challenging at every moment and players are sure to die a lot, but you’ll also get better each step of the way. Trust us, finding your way out of the tricky situations we’ve cooked up is going to feel... Read more
