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…

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…

Independents’ Day: What Is Indie?

This feature was originally published in PC Gamer early last Summer - I republish it here, slightly revised and updated, as it's a few of the indie names we've mentioned often on RPS - 2D Boy, Solium Infernum's Vic Davis, Edmund McMillen... - talking about what drives, defines and binds the independent development community, and why it's on such a roll at the moment. It's…

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,…
