There is something genuinely intriguing about a platforming game that incorporates rhythm-based mechanics that turn your characters movements into parts of the game’s soundtrack. That’s probably why Patrick Klepek was so pleased to get his hands on the latest nostalgia infused, chiptune-fest Bit.Trip Runner at GDC 2010. Speaking of bits, here’s one now:
"Running in the background, however, are the thumping chiptune beats that have driven the other Bit.Trip games. And just like the other games, the music isn't just there to provide something to nod your head to, it's a mechanic that you're changing while playing the game."
Patrick's full preview can be found right here, Bit.Trip lovers.
