This new game from a pair of former Harmonix staffers shows the alumni didn’t walk away without the developer’s penchant for musical rhythm action and colourful visual flair.
Thumper isn’t just a music game; it’s also an on-rails racer. According to Polygon, it stars a beetle, and pits players against an enemy called Crakhed.
Thumper is the first game from Drool, which was founded by ex-Harmonix staffers Marc Flury and Brian Gibson. It’s due in 2014 “on whatever platforms make sense”, and there are some pretty cool GIFs of it on Drool’s website.
