Bit.Trip Runner2 encourages you to f*ck the past

Bit.Trip Presents: Runner2 Future Legend of Rhythm Alien will be at PAX Prime this year, and it’s clear the team at Gaijin Games is driving hard to push forward. If you are one of the many fans of the prior Bit.Trip titles and you’re having a tough time letting go of the past and accept Runner2, then this trailer has a message for you. Just like Jim Sterling says, you’ve got to assess a game for what it is, and not how much it fits your preconceived notion of what it should be.

If you’re looking for a bigger, clearer look for the game in action, we’ve got some screens for you in the gallery. The Liquid Television force is strong with this one. There’s also a look at the new square-shaped loop-de-loops, and good old Unkle Dil in action as a playable character. And pipes! Mountains that smoke old fashioned pipes!

Runner2 is coming to PC and most home consoles early next year.

Just like in a Gameboy game... a nice tight little world... and all its inhabitants... made out of little building blocks... Why can't these little pixels be the building blocks for love..? For loss... for understanding"- James Kochalka, Reinventing Everything part 1 "I wonder if James Kolchalka has played Mother 3 yet?" Jonathan Holmes
