Bit.Trip studio changes name, announces new games

Gaijin Games is dead. Well, not really. They're just rebranding. After six years in business, the indie studio best known for its work on the Bit.Trip series, has decided it's time for a change. It will henceforth be known as Choice Provisions.

The company is also announcing a couple new games, Laserlife and Tharsis.

Choice Provisions describes Laserlife as a metaphysical and euphoric experience where players guide lasers through space, searching for memories of a fallen astronaut to the beat of electronic music. It's coming to Steam and other platforms maybe. Check out some old concept footage here. It looks really great.

Tharsis, is similarly about a journey through space, but it sounds far more stressful. From what we gather, it'll take you on a trip to Mars that has gone horribly wrong. The synopsis includes a note about Zach Gage, Ridiculous Fishing programmer and creator of SpellTower. So perhaps he's latched on with Choice Provisions. Anyway, expect Tharsis on iOS and Steam sooner or later.

That all said, the Gaijin Games mantle will continue to exist in some form. The studio's current catalog, which includes Bit.Trip, Runner2, lilt line, and Bloktonik; will still point to Gaijin Games as their creators. And any future Bit.Trip games will be released under the old name as a label.

Speaking of labels, Robotube, the branch of the company behind upcoming titles Destructamundo and Woah Dave!, is now known as MiniVisions. This is definitely going to take some getting used to.
