Harmonix announces A City Sleeps, a musical shoot ’em up

For $13

Harmonix announces A City Sleeps, a musical twin-stick shoot ’em up a heaping helping of anime and bullets. It’s like a musical Geometry Wars. Harmonix says that soundtrack synchronization drives projectiles, movement, bullets, and even enemy spawning. Hey, that idea sounds familiar.

Driven by an unforgettable original soundtrack that builds through player actions and enemy engagement, A City Sleeps infuses classic twin-stick hardcore shoot ‘em up sensibilities with moment-to-moment tactical choices.

The good news is that it’s not that far away. A City Sleeps already has a Steam pre-order up before its October release date, with prices starting at just under $13 for its PC and Mac versions. 

So Harmonix does bullet hell? Cool!
