New Thumper Launch Options

You may have noticed Thumper now has seven (!) launch options when you run the game from the Steam client. Here's a quick explanation.

The first three are compatible with Windows 7/8/10 and let you run the game regularly or in VR modes:
  1. Play Thumper
  2. Launch Thumper in Steam VR Mode
  3. Launch Thumper in Oculus VR Mode

The next three only work with Windows 10. Everything is exactly the same, but the game has better support for Xbox One Controller vibration when run this way.
  1. Play Thumper (Win 10 only)
  2. Launch Thumper in Steam VR Mode (Win 10 only)
  3. Launch Thumper in Oculus VR Mode (Win 10 only)

The final launch option is the same old legacy DX9 mode (2D only, no VR):
  1. Play Thumper DX9 legacy mode

About This Game

Thumper is rhythm violence: classic rhythm-action, blistering speed, and brutal physicality. You are a space beetle. Brave the hellish void and confront a maniacal giant head from the future.

Scream down the endless track and crash through punishing obstacles with simple, airtight controls. Hurtle forward, master new moves, reach overwhelming velocities, and survive epic boss battles. Every crushing impact is interwoven with a pounding original soundtrack. To reach synesthetic bliss, you must go through rhythm hell.

Play in traditional HD or fully immersive VR (SteamVR or Oculus).

  • Nine levels of Rhythm Hell
  • Adrenalizing Boss Battles, including the terrifying Crakhed
  • Simple Controls: one stick and one button
  • Psychedelic Visuals
  • Original Soundtrack by Brian Gibson of noise-rock band Lightning Bolt
