Year 2019 Rewind

Synth Riders Year 2019 Rewind

Happy New Year!

As we enter into 2020 with a whole new set of exciting Synth Riders features, and with so many huge things planned, we thought it would be fun to look back at the past year’s accomplishments and get a little nostalgic.

You guys have been the most amazing community we could ever ask for and we couldn’t have gotten here without you! Let’s start this 2019 rewind by looking at some of the top Synth Riders songs that you most enjoyed playing this past year.

Year Rewind 02


The most played song was “Lazer Pink” by Sunset Neon. This is a great EDM song with “synthwave” influences that also broke the mold beyond this very genre. We want to give a huge shout out to Omotea for their fantastic video featuring this Sunset Neon classic, and getting a quarter of a million views while at it!



Your second favorite map this year was another Sunset Neon classic, “Tonight” which has become Synth Riders’ very own 80’s rock n’ roll anthem. ). Nobody captures the essence of this song on the game better than Touge, who nails the appropriate costume for this song on his underrated video masterpiece.



Your third favorite song was “Enemy” by Blue Stahli, one of the harder electro-rock songs in the original Synthwave essentials pack. Xoxobluff really shows off getting her leg and core workout for the day playing below.


Year Rewind 04

As far as difficulties in the game, “Expert” was the most commonly played difficulty in 2019, followed closely by “Hard,” which we feel is just about when the game starts to get interesting.

It’s really important to us that Synth Riders is fun for everyone, regardless of their skill level, but we know that it is in the higher level of difficulty, such as Expert or Master,
that really cause you to move your body, experience some of the finer game mechanics and truly feel the music when you play. We’re glad so many people have been experiencing it at these levels

If you’re not there yet, make a resolution that 2020 is the year that you get there! You got this, we’re all behind you!


Year Rewind 03


Lastly, we just wanted to highlight a few of the major features we added in 2019. We’ve been working around the clock to make Synth Riders the best game possible and we think you’ll be very impressed with our 2020 roadmap. Coming up in the pipeline are new song packs, a complete overhaul to the UI, a more robust music discovery system, new features, game modes, and our much awaited multiplayer version, which is already being tested Get ready because in 2020, Synth Riders is about to become a whole new game!

Thanks again for making this year so special for us! We can’t wait for 2020, where we’ll actually get to meet some of you in the new multiplayer mode when that releases very soon!

Here’s to 2020 and another amazing year with you!
