I am unsure about this but Evil Indie's got a great track record. I can't get the YouTube clip up (due to work filters) but I assume this will be an abstract endless runner game; it could be interesting.

Just to reveal some details, Chiptune Runner will be the mix of music sequencer and music runner game with quite new game mechanics.
It will support full music sequencer (editor) and each level of the game will be specific song. When playing you modify the song in the real time to protect Chiptune Runner against saws, bombs, gaps and other stuff... Finally you will fight against bosses. You will be able also to create own levels (songs) and share them.

Some editor views:

We hope you like the idea.

Yeap, it can be used as chiptune DAW, including export song to mp3 and sharing functionality. There will be also option to set avatar and rate songs / levels composed by others.

At present we are considering audio modification functionality but probably audiobus / copy paste between apps functions will not be present in initial release but will be added in first updates (also recording own samples).

Estimated release date is July / August 2013.
We focus mostly on two things: making good music game with addictive and simple gameplay and providing fully functional music sequencer which can be used to create levels for the game.

I watched the trailer and feel strangely compelled to explore Chiptune Runner even though I have even less of any idea what the gameplay is like than I did before.

Chiptune Runner needs your help!

Hey toucharcaders!
We need some of your help with english language: It should be "choose levels' difficulty" or something like "choose your level" better???


Screenshot:


Every difficulty mode (easy, medium and hard) will have different levels with different epic boss fights)...
We appreciate all your suggestions and support for Chiptune Runner game development!
