Talk Fast: Rave party in limbo with Electronic Super Joy


7:00 PM on 05.04.2013



The Talk Fast interview series continues! Electronic Super Joy is a smart, fast paced platformer that features soundtrack-driven level design featuring funny dialog and little ant things that look like Commander Video from the Bit.Trip series.

Foreground characters are shrouded in shadow like that sullen symphony favorite Limbo, though unlike that gloom-fest, Electronic Super Joy gives you a glowing, thumping, candy land for the sad silhouettes to explore. If you've ever wondered if EDM lovers and the hard, glossy, artificial endorphin infused culture that surrounds them is secretly as sad as the stoic sorrow common among the Bauhaus set, then this game might have a message for you. Also, it's pretty fun.

Thanks to the fine folks at Michael Todd Games for talking to us, and sorry to Don for cutting him off so frequently and abruptly. I just trying to help, Don! It didn't want you to feel like you had to keep talking if you didn't want to.Either way, you did a great job. 

As for the rest of you, stay tuned for more Talk Fast!

Review: Electronic Super Joy

The finish line is in sight and a pair of homing missiles are bearing down on my position. I sprint, narrowly dodging one, and leap from a ledge to avoid the other. I breathe a momentary sigh of relief before the panic sets i...more

Sci-fi 2D platformer Orphan looks like a mashup of Limbo and H.G. Wells

Let’s go ahead and get this out of the way, shall we? Yes, Orphan immediately brings to mind Limbo. That’s perfectly fine by me, though. I have enough room left in my heart for more games that can leverage the de...more
