Audiosurf Adopts VR With Audioshield, Out Next Month

Perhaps the most difficult thing about demonstrating the virtues of virtual reality games is the fact that so much of the effect is lost when portrayed via flat video. With this in mind, the Fantastic Contraption guys have made some good videos recently using 'mixed reality' - a process where a combination of secondary cameras and in-game and in-headset footage is used to showcase how…

Audiosurf 2 Surfs Out Of Early Access With Demo

Audiosurf 2 [official site], the game which allows you to 'ride' your music on a neon futuristic racetrack, has left Steam Early Access today. It brings an updated Audiosurf experience, with new official game modes and skins alongside the 500+ already available on Steam Workshop. Not only that, but according to the developer the "UI is good now", which is always a plus.

Flip Side: Audiosurf 2 Leaving Early Access This Month

Audiosurf 2 [official site] is coming out on May 26th. "Oh," says whatever voice I've created for the purposes of introducing this post (sounds a bit like an old mate of yours, one you don't think about often and smile remembering, but underwater), "I thought it was out. It's not out? It is out, isn't it? No? Really?" No, it's still on Steam Early Access.…

Have You Played… Audiosurf?

Have You Played? is an endless stream of game recommendations. One a day, every day of the year, perhaps for all time. Girls Aloud song Biology isn't just a piece of music to me, it's a landscape. This because of the hours spent playing it over and over in Audiosurf [Steam page], an obstacle-dodging score attack game that captivated everyone in my social circle (and…

!: Rock, Paper, Shotgun’s Seven Year Humble Bundle

We're seven years old! (Actually, we were seven years old last month, but we've never been much for punctuality.) And so by way of celebration we've curated the latest weekly Humble Bundle, and that means we've chosen some of our most beloved indie games from the past seven years for the Pay What You Want sale. An esoteric bunch, but so very beautiful, all. If…

Audiosurf Air Coming To Steam Early Access Next Month

I have an unhealthy obsession with music visualizer games. Symphony and Frequency Domain have sated my rampant beatlust in recent years, but I don't think anything will ever top my first love: Audiosurf. It's not the most involved game ever, but that's part of the charm for me. I can just zone out and dive headfirst into a neon-pulsing mouth of music, let it swallow…

Begging For Wub Wub: Audiosurf Air Trailer

Girls Aloud. Biology. Ninja Mono. That was my favourite Audiosurf gig. I'm keen to see what that bounciest of pop tracks will play like in Audiosurf Air, the sequel to the rather lovely music riding puzzle racing game. It was 2008 when Audiosurf came out, a pre-Skrillex world. If there was a game that could have benefited from 'the drop' it was Audiosurf. I hope…

The Colour Of Music: Audiosurf Air Rides In

Once upon a time, Audiosurf was briefly RPS' favourite game ever (although not in the case of John, who only likes beat-free music featuring men with nasal American accents*. Or Jim, who doesn't like emotions). We put in our songs, we turned them into blissfully surreal racetracks/match-3 puzzles, we fought endlessly for higher scores to prove we knew our most beloved songs better than anyone…

Root Maneuver: The Potato Sack Bundle

What are you doing right now? Working? Smiling? Breathing? Well, stop with that nonsense and go straight over to the Steam page for The Potato Sack, a new bundle of indie games offering £108's worth of great indie games, including Amnesia, Super Meat Boy, Toki Tori (which you can read Kieron shouting about here), The Ball (which Jim and John talk about here) and Defense…

The Very Important List Of PC Games, Part 4/5

Young people. Good grief. Your ignorance is as plain as those spots on your greasy face. Don't you know anything? Can't you be bothered to learn anything? Did you even read the words of esteemed colleagues Rossignol, Walker and Smith detailing the first three parts of this Olympian list of The Most Important PC Games Of All Time? I am quite sure that I, Deacon…

A Bank Holiday Bargain: Audiosurf

If you're American, you may not understand the curious institution we Britishers call bank holidays. Because of a general agreement that UK weather is so hideous that it's not worth going outside except during the third week of June, instead families and friends choose to holiday inside their favourite bank for a long weekend. Lloyds TSB is famed for its indoor beaches, while Halifax really…

Girls Vs. Boys Vs. You Vs. Audiosurf

Dylan Fitterer just dropped us a line to say how pleased he is with the latest act on his Audiosurf radio. It's Godheads of Nineties Sex-infused electronic rock, Girls Vs Boys. He loves them. Hey - I love them. But I didn't love them enough to reprogram some extra variation into the free tracks when you play them, which Fitterer did. Go Basstation and you've…

Audiosurf Rides Again

If I actually had any old flames of such calibre that, upon re-encountering them some years later, I was so blown away by their charm and beauty that I wondered why I'd ever broken up with them in the first place, I would surely have a most excellent analogy for how it felt to play Audiosurf for the first time in months. But I don't,…

PCG: Audiosurf

Sorry, it's a bit of a deluge of PC Gamer today, as they've just thrown a mega-ton of last-issue content up onto their site. Think of it as like visiting relatives on the other side of the country. On my part, there's my Audiosurf review, replete with entirely gratuitous Vonnegut quotation. It's a significantly more upbeat take on the game than the RPS verdict (more…

The RPS Verdict: Audiosurf

Like some sort of lumbering clockwork giant, the RPS Hivemind has duly constructed the second instalment of its new Monday feature - discussing a recent game of note, then casting a vote upon its worth. No ludicrous letter-based scoring systems here, though - simply, to buy, or not to buy? That is our question. This time around, it's award-winning synaesthesia game Audiosurf. We've waffled about…

Audiosurf: Now With More Science

There are plenty of plausible reasons to criticise Audiosurf. Unfortunately I'm almost entirely oblivious to them, as it's doing such a wonderful job of fulfilling a very important purpose in my life - giving me a reason to do nothing other than listen to music while still feeling like I'm achieving something. I suspect I'd still be spending too long staring vacantly at iTunes visualisations…

IGF Winners Announced

The results are in, with the winners announced for the 2008 IGF Awards. The standard of entries this year was just stunning, and when we've tried to pick out our favourite of the top prize entries, it's been impossible. For us it came down to three. Audiosurf has taken over our lunchtimes (and mornings and afternoons and evenings) this week, and is obviously a triumphant…
