'Thumper' (ALL) Gets Xbox One Date

by Rainier on Aug. 3, 2017 @ 12:58 a.m. PDT

Thumper combines classic rhythm-action with speed and physicality. You control a space beetle while careening towards confrontation with an insane giant head from the future.

Thumper strips rhythm gaming down to its core. With one analog stick and one button, you control a space beetle as you hurtle through treacherous psychedelic worlds. By keeping the gameplay pure and simple, we combine classic rhythm-action with speed and satisfying physicality. The basic move set of thumping, sliding, and turning is easy to learn. But as you careen onward, you’ll need to master new moves and survive adrenalizing boss encounters. To reach synesthetic bliss, you must go through rhythm hell. And nothing can prepare you for the ultimate confrontation with an insane giant head from the future: CRAKHED.

Drool's music composer, Brian, is the bassist for the noise-rock band Lightning Bolt and he created Thumper’s original soundtrack. The music varies from thunderous drumbeats to dark synth blasts to eerie cosmic drones.

Currently available on PS4, Switch and PC, Thumper is coming to Xbox One on August 18, 2017
