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.
