Description

Hypnotic 3D runner game focused on speed and rhythm. Tasked with the simple option of moving up or down to avoid blockades and survive the full experience, you must maneuver around tight platforms as the pace quickens. The music plays a lead role in the experience, the game mirrors the speed and rhythm of the song. High scores can only be achieved by making good use of the boost.

History

After creating Lights by Ellie Goulding, an interactive music experience using WebGL, Carlos & Liber wanted to continue exploring the relationship between music and interaction. They chose a simple game mechanic inspired in the trench run level of the original Star Wars arcade from 1983, letting the music dictate the flow of the game.

Features
