Red Trigger 2 is a full length, FPA (First Person Adventure) action game set in the world of Red Trigger. It takes inspiration from games like Portal, Metroid Prime and Bioshock, but very much has its own identity. After infiltrating The Gathering Project’s firewall, you have more questions than answers. Who is Alaric? Expand and retract red blocks with your laser-gun to puzzle your way to the truth.
In Red Trigger 2, the main mechanic revolves around you shooting red blocks called Red Triggers. When you shoot a Red Trigger, it expands, and when you shoot it back, it retracts.
However, you can only expand three Red Triggers at a time, so you must manage your energy wisely. You can either retract Red Triggers one at a time, or all at once. Be careful though, you don't want to do that while standing on an extended block over a deep, deep void below you!
The Red Triggers are used in many different ways like making platforms, blocking lasers, holding doors open, powering systems, conducting electricity, propelling yourself, inputting codes and more!

As you enter the HUB of the game, you can tackle the biomes all around it in almost any order you want. In each biome, you'll unlock a new ability like a grappling hook, a double-jump, a dash and more, which will allow you to explore more parts of the HUB, a bit like a Metroidvania!
For most of the adventure, you'll be accompanied by a mysterious sassy cat named Off Guard and, together, you'll try to uncover the dark secrets of this universe, as well as his tragic backstory.
Each biome of the game has a single inhabitant that has a specific type of physical or mental pain. The biome they live in represents in an abstract way the struggle they live with. Let's take psychosis for example. In the biome themed around it, as you pass a certain door frame, if you turn around, you'll see that it's not the same room anymore. Trippy! Help those souls by fighting their mental shackles in a boss fight at the end of each biome!
You play as a computer virus called Red Trigger. At the end of each biome, corrupt that zone and escape back into the HUB! Beware, this won't be easy, as you'll need to do an escape sequence to return to safety as each biome crumbles!
The game takes place directly after the events of the prologue. Uncover the dark truth of this universe through the events of the game, but also through Bioshock-esque audio logs. Piece all those elements together to discover the secrets of this abstract world inside a digital server. All the characters are fully voice-acted and are full of personality.
Red Trigger 2 is about 10 times bigger than the first game.
