The Cursed Choices update will greatly expand the content of the twin-stick shooter

Montpellier, June 22nd, 2021 – Solo developer BenStar aka Benjamin Kiefer, with support from publisher Dear Villagers (ScourgeBringer, The Dungeon of Naheulbeuk) has released the second Steam Early Access update for his pixelated roguelite Revita. As revealed in a brand new trailer, the ‘Cursed Choices’ update introduces a host of new features, including a fourth area, a revamped ticket system, 25 new relics and a sinister NPC called ‘The Librarian’. 

BenStar has also released a content roadmap showing which major updates will be coming to Revita over the course of next year:

‘If you liked the look of Revita but wanted a bit more content, now is the time to jump in,’ says Benjamin Kiefer, the solo dev behind Revita. ‘I’ve squeezed a lot of new stuff into this update. It’s chunky as hell!’

In Revita, players must climb an ominous clock tower through a series of procedural encounter rooms and past challenging boss fights on their way to reclaiming their lost memory. Along the way, players will be able to trade health for randomized upgrades as the game dares them to live on a knife-edge.



  • The Somber Sepulcher 

Explore a whole new level in the mythical clocktower, with a unique aesthetic, different enemies, and a terrifying boss fight.

  • An Expanded Cast

Meet enigmatic new NPCs including the Priestess and the Librarian, and discover how they factor into Revita’s story.

  • Decisions, decisions

As well as adding 25 new relics, the update also gives players the ability to choose between two different effects when receiving a curse. 

  • Mind the gap

Collect train tickets over the course of a run and give yourself an edge on the next attempt.
