    The Challenge Update is now live! Compete for a highscore in the Daily Challenge, or if you're feeling more creative, design, build and share your own rooms and arenas.

    This is a free update for all Time Rifters owners.

    Check out our new Time Rifters: Challenge Update trailer for a preview of the new features, or just exit & restart Steam to check them out for yourself.
