Thumper is a strange game. It’s very intense, and absolutely not for the faint of heart or those prone to seizures. You play as a little silver beetle in space, moving along to the rhythm of sone pretty hardcore music, with insane imagery and flashing lights surrounding you.
The developers of this game, Drool, seem to really care about providing a fun experience for their fans at the earliest time possible. They had this to say:
“Thumper is launching later today (October 10) at 3PM PST on Steam! We wanted to surprise and reward gamers who have been waiting years for the game to come out with the chance to play a bit sooner!”
The game will also support VR. It’s already on PSVR, and is headed to HTC Vive and Oculus Rift before the end of the year.
What do you think about surprise launches? Let us know in the comments or on the RGM forums.
