The Game lets players riff through movies in May – Destructoid

Create your own Mystery Science Theater snark along

A new game for those who’ve hosted a Bad Movie Night or two is coming in a few months. The professional movie hecklers at RiffTrax are launching their own game with What the dub?! studio Wide Right Interactive on May 5, 2022.

RiffTrax: The Game will feel pretty familiar to those who like to talk back to their movies. If you’re unfamiliar, RiffTrax—and its spiritual predecessor Mystery Science Theater 3000—featured low-budget films that actors would talk over, making jokes about the events on-screen.

This ReefTrax game looks to be using a similar set-up, where players can inject their own snark into the spaces of bad cinema. Wide Right created a similar set-up with What the dub?!, a party game where players dubbed in new lines for movies. the ReefTrax game is using some similar tech, with a few new twists.

Players can either write their own riffs, or pick from a selected bunch of riffs written by the ReefTrax team. Judging by the trailer, these riffs appear to be voiced by the RiffTrax folks, so that’s a neat little addition. There are going to be over 250 movie clips, including some classics like Plan 9 From Outer Space.

Wide Right Interactive confirms there will be cross play and remote games, as well as Twitch chat integration. RiffTrax: The Game also uses a jack box style controller setup, where any internet-connected device can access and play along. So yes, riff away on your phone, tablet, or whatever else can make it through to the world wide web.
