The follow-up to the astoundingly addictive Bit.Trip Runner, from Gaijin Games, will take on a whole slew of bold new looks. The original game featured a retro, 8-bit style. The new one?
Bit.Trip Presents Runner2: Future Legend of Rhythm Alien, as the trailer above indicates, looks all kinds of crazy and fresh. I actually had a chance to speak with one of the developers from Gaijin Games during PAX East earlier this year. It was there that he explained that the change in art came because their designer decided he could do more by getting away from straight 8-bit.
That art designer was right. Bit.Trip Presents Runner2: Future Legend of Rhythm Alien looks crazy.
If you’ve never played Bit.Trip Runner, do so. It’s available for a small price tag on almost every major platform present today.
