It's safe to say that the original Bit.Trip Runner is one of my favorite running games/frustration simulators of all time. Something about its catchy music and tough-yet-fair gameplay worked its way directly into my heart. When I heard that a sequel was coming, I had to immediately put on my journalism pants and see the game in action.
Fortunately, the brilliant team at Gaijin games brought a build of the game to PAX 2012 for me to touch/become addicted to. While I played I was lucky enough to catch up with Alex Neuse and Mike Roush and talk to them about the game. Enjoy.
