I may not have been in attendance this year, but that doesn't mean we don't have plenty of news to recap from this year's wonderful-but-slightly-less-so-because-I-wasn't-there PAX East! First up, Gearbox announced a new char...

Bit.Trip Complete and Saga were released several months ago here in North America, but across the pond there are still plenty of fans eagerly awaiting their release. Fortunately, Europeans don't have much longer to wait,...
The folks at Gaijin Games are cranking away on Bit.Trip Runner 2 but paused long enough to give a little update over at the official blog. Along with some well wishes for the new year, Mike Roush also tossed up an image ...
First off, yes people, I know it's not called Bit.Trip Runner 2. The game is called Bit.Trip presents: Runner 2 Future Legend of Rhythm Alien. I knew that without having to look at the official webpage as a reference (though ...
We have a big video interview coming up tomorrow with the elusive composer and sound designer for the critically acclaimed Bit.Trip series. This is the first time for this composer to come out to the press and discu...
Alex Neuse posted this new video to the Bit.Trip Runner 2 development blog that shows the editing tools Gaijin Games is using for level design. If you've never seen the crude basic elements that all your favorite games ...
The Bit.Trip series proper may be over, but there is more in store for CommanderVideo. Taking a page out of the Square Enix playbook, Gaijin Games is prepping a direct sequel to the fourth installment, Runner, and it will be...
The phenomena dubbed by prophets as "Nubageddon" continues to rock the videogame world. Foretold as bringer of the end of Nintendo's world sometime 2012, the 3DS slide pad attachment is perhaps the most co...
The Bit.Trip titles are some of my favorite games of this console generation. Sadly, the series still hasn't truly found its audience. Sure, the games have a huge following, but I'm certain that the Bit.Trip series has what i...

It's time to re-experience Commander Video's profound musical journey in the upcoming Bit.Trip COMPLETE. Scheduled to be released for Wii on September 13, this disc will contain all six episodes of the Bit.Trip series, plus ...
Gaijin Games (and their partner Robotube Games) have popped their claws and submerged them deep into the guts and meats of the iPad. After this, I don't think there is any turning back. Their fury has now been unleashed, and ...
Our own Jonathan Holmes has talked at length about the Bit.Trip series' deeper meaning. I personally come for the fun, aesthetically pleasing games and stay for, well, those same reasons. I won't pretend to know what any of i...
We know that Bit.Trip Saga for 3DS is going to hit store shelves in September. What of its disc-based Wii counterpart, though? Publisher Aksys Games says Bit.Trip Complete is also on for -- you probably guessed it -- the same...
I was lucky enough to bump into Mike Roush and Alex Neuse of Gaijin Games at E3 while shopping for bananas. I was even luckier to find that they had a work-in-progress build of Bit.Trip SAGA (the 3DS collection of all six critically acclaimed Bit.Trip titles) in their pocket. "F*ck bananas," I told them. "I need to play this thing, like, yesterday." So I played it, and here's what I thought.
I just finished writing up a preview of Bit.Trip SAGA (the 3DS collection of all six Bit.Trip games) when I spotted this press release about Bit.Trip Complete, the retail collection of all six Bit.Trip games on the Wii.As imp...
As divulged by Gaijin Games this week, the Bit.Trip series is getting the in-store compilation disc treatment for Wii. Bit.Trip Collection, IndieGames reports, will have "many new gameplay challenges," and unlockable video, a...
Gaijin Games is at the top of my "do-want 3DS games" list with Bit.Trip Saga. The series was remarkably fun on Wii, again on PC, and should continue to be a joy in handheld form. It's almost too perfect a fit for the 3DS, whi...
Here's a sentence I was hoping I'd get to one day write: Gaijin Games is compiling all of the Bit.Trip games for release on 3DS. When publisher Aksys Games circulated this image, it became fairly clear that such a collection ...
Remember Terry Garrett, the blind gamer who can blaze through Oddworld: Abe's Exoddus via sound cues alone? Now he's back to make Bit.Trip Runner his bitch! Watch above as Terry races through the first few levels of the PC v...
Dtoid received an email from Aksys games with this image attached. The email said "more details coming soon?" and that's it. I guess Aksys is asking us if more details are coming on what looks like a some sort of 3D outing fo...
Have you bought Lilt Line? I'm guessing not. That's because its developer, Different Cloth, has released their sales numbers for their dubstep music game and they are what one might call a little light in the pocketbook. The ...
Yesterday evening, the Independent Games Festival Awards ceremony took place in San Francisco as part of the Game Developers Conference. It was fun to watch, whether you were there in person or simply viewing from home thanks...
It's a Bit.Trip f*cking overload! The final game in the series, Bit.Trip FLUX, hits WiiWare tomorrow, while the most beloved game in the series, Bit.Trip RUNNER, is hitting Steam for Mac/PC. According to the attached press re...
The Bit.Trip series came to a close on Friday with the release of Bit.Trip FLUX in Europe. I'm sad to see to the series come to an end, but I'm also excited to see what Gaijin Games and their subsidiary Robotube games will co...
Bit.Trip FLUX is out in Europe, and I'm officially jealous. I've already played through the game to completion once (see this practically-a-review for details), so I feel a little bratty by complaining about having to wait a...
When I try to get in touch with Jason Cirillo, founder of Robotube Games, he's in line trying to buy a bento box, somewhere in New York City. He's starving and needs to eat, so I try again later. This time, he's stepping onto...
Gaijin Games, the guys behind the BIT.TRIP series, have gobbled up Robotube Games, an independent game dev specializing in web-based puzzle games and videogame documentaries. Studio head and CEO Alex Neuse: "Our bi...
Bit.Trip FLUX, the grand finale of the Bit.Trip series, is almost here. As a huge fan of these games, I'm sad to see them come to an end. That said, I can't wait for FLUX to come out. Though the game marks the end of one of ...
Gaijin Games founder Alex Neuse has leveled a little criticism at his peers in the indie game market, stating that with a recent flood of titles has come a number of disappointingly unfinished games. "I think that the indie s...
Gaijin Games sure does know a thing or two about creating titles in which you have to "enter the zone," so to speak, in order to be truly successful. The pattern continues with Bit.Trip FLUX, which got a happenin' new traile...
Bit.Trip FLUX is a hard game to write about. On one hand, you could simply say that the game is the spiritual sequel to Bit.Trip BEAT. On the surface, it plays exactly like BEAT, only backwards. Scratch that surface though, a...
I got to play Bit.Trip FLUX in its entirety yesterday. I loved it so much, but I promised the guys at Gaijin Games I wouldn't tell you that (or anything else about the game for that matter) without their explicit permission. ...
Oh my God. Yeah, it's really happening. We're playing Lilt Line, Bit.Trip CORE and Bit.Trip VOID, on our live stream today! On top of that we're hoping to get a few of the guys from Gaijin Games (publisher of Lilt Line on Wii...
If you beat the Bit.Trip stocking level in the bland-but-serviceable free 2D platformer Mission in Snowdriftland, you unlock this teaser image for Bit.Trip FLUX. I've played the game, which gives me the proper context to unde...
We did a live stream of Bit.Trip FATE and Bit.Trip RUNNER last night. As is customary, we ended up getting too into it and the planned 3 hour show turned into a +8 hour marathon. Good times indeed. Over the course of that mar...
Ganja Games I mean Gaijin Games and their epic game series Bit Torrent Bit Trip is both easy on the ears and eyes! That's why I decided to forcefully stumble my way in their studio to find out more about Bit Trip, Lilt Line ...
Gaijin Games just let loose with the news about Laserlife; one of many secret projects they've got cooking on the back burners as the finish up the Bit.Trip series. Drunk off of potato chips and compliments, Gaijin Games CEO...
