Indie DROOL unveils trailer for rhythm racer THUMPER


10:30 AM on 11.05.2013



The F-Zero series may be the king of the "go really fast and repeatedly run into walls until you explode" genre of games, but indie developer DROOL apparently wants to try its hand at it. The interesting bit is that DROOL is made up of two former Harmonix employees, and they intend to infuse a rhythm component into THUMPER.

From the trailer above, it isn't exactly clear how THUMPER will play or how it will incorporate music, although it does seem reminiscent of Frequency or Audiosurf, but without the gems to hit. What is shown is the protagonist named THUMPER, who is described as "the ultimate space beetle with a high polish chrome exterior." Naturally, THUMPER wants to kill CRAKHED, because he hates drug addicts with bad spelling.

THUMPER is planned as a 2014 release on multiple unspecified platforms.

Driveclub's PlayStation Plus concept has been hyped up for quite some time. The idea of getting a piece of retail game at launch, even if it's just a slice, is a pretty sweet deal for Plus owners. But it appears as if there a...more

Link: Open letter to Microsoft, Turn 10, Playground Games on DLC

Forza Horizon 2? Pretty damned good, right? Having to buy a car pack to get the most desired DLC car? Not so good. I have strong feelings of my own on that and other DLC topics surrounding the Forza franchise, but I can save ...more
