Rhythm Game '140' Announced for Xbox One
Announced for the Xbox One, 140, a challenging minimalistic rhythm-based platformer, is coming out this summer. 140 was originally released for PC and Mac OS in 2013 after winning the Excellence in Audio award at the Independent Games Festival, and is now being adapted for Xbox One by Abstraction Games in partnership with Double Fine Presents.
Jesppe Carlsen made 140 as a pet project in his spare time whilst also working as lead puzzle designer at Playdead (developer of Limbo). It features music by his friend and co-worker Jakob Schmid.
At its heart, 140 is an old school platformer set in a world of abstract colorful graphics, but it has a musical twist. You’ll need to overcome obstacles that are controlled by an energetic, yet melancholic, electronic soundtrack, meaning you’ll need a heightened sense of rhythm to sync up your every move and jump to the music.
For now you can check out a trailer of the trippy game below:
