Synth Riders is a VR rhythm game that takes the player on a journey into a stunning neon-colored cyberpunk world with beautiful stages straight from the ’80s and music from top synthwave and electro-rock artists from around the world.
The player’s goal is to hit different colored notes that fly according to the beat with the corresponding orb while dodging obstacles. Some notes come separately, others in long lines, some need to be hit with one specific orb, others with both orbs simultaneously.
The feature of Synth Riders that sets it apart is that in this game, dancing is not optional but crucial for those who want to climb to the top of the leaderboard. Handcrafted beatmaps are designed to make the players dance naturally, activating the whole body of the player. This makes for a great workout and relaxation when perfectly synced notes flow to the rhythm of electronic music.

Synth Riders was created by Abraham Aguero, the Creative Director at Kluge Interactive. Abraham had an unstoppable obsession with the ’80s; synth sounds, simple game mechanics and signature aesthetics impassioned him into a creative force born out of nostalgia. Abraham created RetroWaveVR, an instagram community with more than 35,000 followers, and a game series, which first launched Max, a homage to Space Invaders. Its second title was Synth Riders, and it was soon pretty evident that this game had serious potential.
