Online music streaming will return

Local music files still work great, but online streaming isn't working in Audiosurf 2 right now. A big streaming update is in development.

EDIT: Beta testing now open

About This Game

By blending gameplay with music visualization, Audiosurf puts you inside your music in a way nothing else can. Use your own music to create your own experience. The shape, the speed, and the mood of each ride is determined by the song you choose.

What are the biggest improvements from Audiosurf 1?

Ever-expanding new ways to play with over 500 and counting player-created mods and skins on Workshop.. Additional layers of strategy tied to the song’s biggest moments. In-game leaderboards let you compare your score moment to moment against your friends and rivals even when they’re not online. Enhanced graphics quality. Ability to search for music (including online music). Available on Mac and Linux!

What’s new about Mono mode in Audiosurf 2?

In Audiosurf 2 your timing in mono mode is more important than ever. You’ve got to strategize to get your grid full at the most intense moments of songs to get the most points. Look ahead in the distance for corkscrew loops with powerups to know when these moments will occur.

What do I get in the demo?

The demo allows players to play any song they want, for their first 3 songs. After that, they can play the Song of the Day, everyday, as many times as they want.

Is there a mode that focuses on dodging blocks?

Yes, there's a new Ninja mode. It has a big bonus for hitting no spikes and creates intense spike fields to weave through. It’s faster than regular Mono and the second-to-second challenge of avoiding spikes is harder. For even more challenge there’s ninja turbo. It’s too fast for you.

What’s new about the Puzzle modes in Audiosurf 2:

Just as with Mono mode, your timing on Puzzle modes is now more important than ever. Push, Shuffle, Erase, or Scoop blocks at the just the right moments to take full advantage of multiplier powerups that come at the most intense moments of songs.

Can players make their own mods and skins to share on Steam Workshop?

Yes! There’s detailed documentation on making Audiosurf 2 skins available here: http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=413812198
Also, every mode and skin in the games comes with the script source code and assets. Players can use any of the official modes/skins as a starting place.

When you're playing a really chill song and getting into it

but then you hit a star and the audience suddenly cheers at three times the volume of the song

and instead of swallowing the water in your mouth, you inhale it

and then it comes out of your nose.

10/10 would be spooked by audience again

The original Audiosurf is the reason I downloaded Steam. 185 games later Audiosurf 2 is still my favorite game which I play every day. Now that the official release is out it is better in every way than the original. There is no other game out there that reacts as dynamically to music. If you like attacking scores on puzzle games like Tetris Attack, then puzzle league is for you. Play Vegas as an introduction and study how the scoring system works and you'll be hooked. If at first you can't compete then pick some obscure song that only you and a handfull of people own and capture that high score. Down the road you will get an email that someone dethroned you and you will laugh and re-attack their score. Thanks Dylan for listening to the fans and making the perfect game!

Early Access Review
Posted: November 25, 2013
Just when you thought that listening to music couldn't get any better... Introducing Audiosurf 2, the sequel to the very popular and acclaimed indie game released back in 2008. Any song from your collection can be chosen to ride, and the game will generate a unique track for the song you choose. At slower parts, the track will rise and the block traffic will be low. At more intense parts, the track will rapidly descend, greatly increasing the block traffic. Although the original Audiosurf only had a handful of modes to choose from, thanks to the steam workshop integration that the sequel offers, the amount of game modes and skins that are available is endless, although many of the game modes do generally involve avoiding a certain object or color, while collecting another. That being said, with the many different variations that are available to download, the fear of becoming bored with this game is never an issue. The visuals look beautiful, and are definitely an improvement from the first one, not to mention the vast amount of downloadable skins that are even more aesthetically appealing.

This is, at the time of this review, an early access game, and as such, expect a few bugs and glitches that are still being worked out. In my experience thus far, however, I have yet to experience any problem that would be considered anything more than slightly inconveniencing. In conclusion, this game is a unique experience that provides endless hours of gameplay, all while enjoying your own music and having the choice of seemingly endless ways to experience it. If you are still unsure, pick up the first one during a sale, if you enjoy that one, you will undoubtedly enjoy this one as well.

Many years ago, Dylan Fitterer asked a simple question: "Wanna see me make the greatest music game you've ever played?" And so, he went on to create Audiosurf, and at the time, it was. The way it analyzed and understood music files was unparalleled, and many other games tried to match it. Some did reasonably well, some failed. Dylan began an ascension as he improved upon Audiosurf further - introducing things like (difficult to find) separate scoreboards for mono players, [as-tags], and a buff to all the characters that weren't Pointman.

Soon, Dylan's ascension took him from us and into the next plane over. And as time wore on, we began to notice flaws in the original product, many of which stem from Quest3D, its engine, being garbage, but also some discrepancies in the music matching algorithm. Then, recently, a great glowing ball of pure astral energy descended from the clouds, and in an echoy, yet very much familiar voice, it asked a simple question:

"Wanna see me do it again?"

So I picked up this game not too long ago, really cool colors and beats combined with a puzzle like gameplay. Not incredibly fun but a good time killer/

Then I played it baked.

11/10 with trees

If you enjoyed the original audiosurf, get this, it's basically audiosurf, but opened up to the max, with fantastic modding support and every mode you could wish for. If a mode you want isn't there, chances are you can find it on the workshop already, and the game has only just left early access. If you haven't played the original, also get this. It's a brilliant rhythm game where you can play with any song you like on a multitude of game modes.

This game gives me a new way to appreciate all of my favorite songs ^^

...However, the recent Youtube Streaming update ruined something for me. There's this one song that I really love, but can't buy on my ipod for various reasons. So if I want to play it on Audiosurf 2 I needed to search it online through the game. After a long unintended break from this game, I return to it and search for that one particular song to play...and come up with the music video for it on youtube instead. That music video has a small "non-song" skit at the end of it. If I play that video on Audiosurf 2, I'll be forced to play through the (somewhat cringey) skit at the end, which I do NOT want to do. I also dont like that the youtube video plays in the corner of the screen as you play. It's very distracting.

So while I do love this game deep in my heart, with this recent update Im forced to give it a thumbs down. If the Youtube Streaming thing didn't completely overtake the online search function, I wouldn't mind. But it did JUST that, so...yeah.

How are gay babies born?

Is it like an infection? Like an infected sperm gets in a egg? So kindof like how ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ babies are born?
What if the mom and dad were gay though? Does that make the baby bi?

Audiosurf 1 was a great game, and Audiosurf 2 builds upon it and makes it even better. Apart from the default modes and skins, you can make your own and get ones made by others from the workshop!
Even better though, It has YouTube streaming, currently in beta, which works very well. You just search the video, if you are the first one to play it you let it process, and you are playing it instantly.
Overall, a great sequel to the original Audiosurf, I reccomend it 100%.

I absolutely love this game and I recommend this game to anyone who loves rhythm and music games.

HOWEVER since the latest patch my game crashes every time I open anything in the main menu so I can't play anything.

I'll update this review to positive once it's fixed.

This game started out a little thin, but the updates over time have made it a real joy to play alone or with friends. There's youtube integration now, so you can stream music and songs through that service and play to them. This is a huge boon, and adds something unique and awesome to the experience.

Ever since the new YouTube update I cannot play any songs. The play button won't do anything. I love this game, but right now I don't... I'm frustrated with trying to get it to work. Please fix this!
