Developers Drool have confirmed that their psychedelic ‘rhythm violence’ title Thumper will launch on October 13th 2016 for Playstation 4, Playstation VR and PC. Take a look at the game in action in the trailer below:

Thumper strips rhythm gaming down to its core. Classic rhythm-action is combined with breakneck speed and brutal physicality. With one analog stick and one button, you control a space beetle hurtling through stunning and treacherous worlds.

The basic move set of thumping, sliding, and turning is easy to learn. But as you careen forward, you’ll need to master new moves and survive adrenalizing boss encounters. To reach synesthetic bliss, you must face rhythm hell.

And nothing can prepare you for the ultimate confrontation with a maniacal giant head from the future: CRAKHED.

A collectors edition has been revealed for the game too, which gamers will be able to pre-order on the iam8bit website from tomorrow – check it out through this link.
