Thumper Release Date, Collector’s Edition Announced

Drool announced its upcoming rhythm violence game Thumper will release on Oct. 13 for PS4, PSVR, and Steam.
The game will release for $19.99 as a part of the debut lineup for PSVR, Sony’s virtual reality headset.
Thumper has nine playable levels that will test players’ reflexes as they dodge obstacles and time beats. Brian Gibson – co-founder of Drool along with Mark Flury – is a member of the band Lightning Bolt and designed the music for the game. Gibson and Flury first developed the mechanics and levels for the game, with Gibson later crafting the sound to tailor it to gameplay.
E3 2016 gave us an opportunity to play Thumper in 2D and on PSVR. The game is intense and fun either way but the virtual reality experience adds something special to Thumper as a whole.
Flury announced on the PlayStation Blog that Thumper is getting a limited collector’s edition courtesy of iam8bit. The collector’s edition includes a code for the game, a vinyl soundtrack, a picture disc, cover artwork designed by musician and artist Robert Beatty, and special features that will be announced at a later date. Pre-orders for the edition will be available on June 30 at 9am PDT at the iam8bit store.
