Bit.Trip Runner 2

Just in time for the weekend, Bit.Trip has put a number of their games in a collection on Steam for 75% off. Bit.Trip Runner, Bit.Trip Core, Bit.Trip Beat, and Bit.Trip Void are available for $2.49 individually, or grab the entire collection to get the soundtracks as well.

The May’hem sale includes most of the series of delightfully 8-bit games. If you haven’t played them, they have a range of gameplay styles from Pong-like (Beat) to infinite runner (Runner) to...just weird (Void). The only non-8-bit-style game of the series, Bit.Trip Presents...Runner 2: The Future Legend of Rhythm Alien, is not included in the collection and is only (only!) 25% off.

I regard this as a shot across the bow by the evil geniuses at Steam. Though the last huge Steam sale wasn’t that long ago, it is already May. It won’t be that long until we’re barraged with the horrible glory that is the Steam Summer Sale. That sound? Oh, that was just your wallet crying.

The May’hem lasts until May 20.

BIT.TRIP VOID is Now Available on Steam and is 10% off to celebrate!

BIT.TRIP VOID is a synesthetic exploration of rhythm and music as they pertain to our everyday lives and moods. In a control scheme brand new to the series, yet wholly familiar to gamers, the player is given complete freedom to move about the screen wherever they desire, interacting with the music in brand new ways. The classic gameplay aesthetic remains, as color—and the absence of color—are explored to the fullest.

Hey everyone,

So, when you buy a soundtrack on Steam, it ends up in the install directory for the game, so here're the paths where it poops your files to:

program files (x86) > steam > steamapps > common > *game name*

home > library > application support > steam > steamapps > common > *game name*

Because Android people are just better than iOS people. FACT.

After a brief foray into the world of music, the Humble folks are back with their third Android bundle. Which is also a PC, Linux and Mac bundle too. Buy them, and you’ll get versions for each. In there this time are BIT.TRIP.BEAT, Fieldrunners, SpaceChem, Uplink and for those who pay above the average, début release Spirits. So that’s quite an… wait, what, Uplink’s out on Android!

The Humble Bundle is back on, this time offering a set of games for Android devices. It includes Fieldrunners, Bit.Trip Beat, SpaceChem, and Uplink. Paying more than the average (currently just over $6) gets you Spirits as well.

SpaceChem and Uplink will both require a tablet, if you're playing the Android versions, but the good news is that a single purchase unlocks Windows, Mac, and Linux versions as well. All of the games also come with soundtracks, so altogether Humble Bundle touts a $52 value. As usual, you'll be able to name your own price.

Steam potato sack sale

Come with me, back into the distant past. Don't mind that wibbly blurry effect and that "WooOOoOOooOO" noise, that's just what happens when you go back in time. We're almost there. All you have to do is click this link and make the transition to April 4 2011!

I've always wanted to say that. If you just took the trip, you'll know exactly what I'm talking about. You'll also have a good idea as to whether or not you'd like to purchase the games going in the return of the potato sack sale on Steam.

The ridiculously good Bit.Trip Runner has a sequel, of sorts, on the way. It's not part of the Bit.Trip series, though, so it's simply called Runner 2. Which about sums up what's going on.

Note that, as good as this already looks, it's a "super sneaky peek" at pre-alpha code, which you'll eventually realise with the lack of effects or background animations.
