Didn't think this was out ahead of the PSVR. I loved what I played at the PC Gaming Show, so I'll definitely be picking this up..

after I wade through the swamp of other PSVR titles. Rez Infinite is gonna be my rhythm VR hook for a while

I hope someone figures away to force VR ahead of official Rift/Vive support. End of year is too far. Either way I will finally get to enjoy this tonight.

So I contacted the developers about perhaps opening up an opt-in beta for preliminary VR support.



JOY!

So, if you're a PC owner and interested in this, show your support and RETWEET!

The Game Informer review is the lowest score, but damn if the opening paragraph isn't the perfect description of this game's atmosphere

Thumper is the last thing a beetle imagines when it smacks into a windshield. Thumper is what it’s like to peer into the subconscious of the guitar-playing Doof Warrior from Mad Max: Fury Road. Thumper is a rhythm game stripped down to the rims – a primal, uncomfortable nightmare by design. Though it shares a few DNA strands with other games out there, Thumper is its own unique beast – a mean, unrelenting animal...

This game is FUCKING AWESOME.

Played for two hours nonstop. Standing up and walking around was a bit of a challenge for a short while. Thumper is just intense. I think it has the makings of a modern classic in the rhythm genre.

I'm on level 4. So that happened. I don't think I'll be able to get an S ranking ever again moving forward, HAH. This is the first time I have ever thought that 1080p/2D/60fps is not enough for a game, it's really hard to see some of this stuff coming now. Turning is second nature now though, I can just feel the direction of the turns before they even show up, but on the flipside I have discovered perfect turns. That was a mistake, I've died so many times now trying to do that now. :P

I think the best part of the call-response formula are the bars and rings. You get the rhythm of them appearing on the track, and that satisfying beat when you smash through.

Followed by the thump + wall grind combo.

Personally I bought on PS4 because of the PSVR support. Currently playing in non-VR and it runs at a solid 60 (no drops at all so far), and it looks gorgeous.

Impressions in this thread seem to suggest the PC version performs exceptionally well though, see here:

TV is just an add-on! Couldn't you just queue up some mp3s, put on your headphones, and crank the volume real loud? You could even tap your fingers on your belly while listening to simulate gameplay!

Probably feels like the insane roller coaster ever in VR, but it's still super intense and satisfying without VR

PC version all the way if you have at least a 970.

This sucker can run at over 4k and still maintain 120fps WITH AA.

This means VR mode will more than likely be 90fps with high levels of supersampling.


Fuck. Please get that VR patch out now.

The game gets crazy when you start attempting combos and high scores on later levels.

4k 60fps w/8x MSAA on a GTX 970M.

Pretty intense so far.

Giving me that FOTONICA type exhilaration. Dope.

edit: dropped it to 4xMSAA after some frame drops on the second level.

Highly recommend getting the soundtrack version. It's worth the extra few bucks.

This game is going to destroy me. I'm on level 5 right now and hitting a real bastard of a wall, but I'm hooked.

I'm really enjoying it, the best moments are incredibly intense and fun. My only gripes are that some of the cues don't stand out amidst the soundtrack--which I'm concerned may be a problem in the latter levels--and that the 'minimalist' aesthetic means information on scoring mechanics etc. are never made explicit.

Between this, Future Tone, and Rez, it's been a really great year for rhythm games.

This game may legitimately kill me in VR. (Almost) 2 levels down and I feel drained right now. I'm going to leave it until Thursday and then dive back in. I probably should dick around with other stuff in VR first so I don't end up just playing this all day or, like I said, dying before I get to play Rigs, etc.
