Recoil Games Announces ‘Hard Times’ DLC for Rochard; Rock Runners Coming to iOS This Week

Today, Recoil Games is excited to announce brand new upcoming DLC for its critically acclaimed puzzle-platformer, Rochard on Windows PC, Mac, and Linux. Titled ‘Hard Times’, the new content will be available soon and includes four new, incredibly challenging puzzle levels: ‘Container Chaos’, ‘Shaft Shuffle’, ‘Brainyard’ and ‘Assembly Line’. These levels were created as a response to fans that found the original stages a bit too ‘easy’. The ‘Hard Times’ content is designed to use all of the existing game mechanics, with an emphasis on puzzle-solving as opposed to combat, and offers a difficult test for even the most experienced players.

Rochard features a modest hero, nefarious villains, big explosions, even bigger stunts and hilarious one-liners. The game allows players to change gravity at will to solve environmental puzzles and advance through each level. By using the main tool of the game, the upgradable G-Lifter, players can lift and maneuver boxes and heavy objects around the environment and can eventually swing, jump and propel themselves huge distances throughout each level.

The ‘Hard Times’ DLC is available soon for Rochard on Windows PC, Mac, and Linux. You can purchase the game here: The original Rochard is also available for download on PlayStation 3 via the PlayStation Network. For more information, visit
