Earlier this month, we reported on the first batch of new artists for the upcoming PSN-exclusive release Chime Super Deluxe, with news that more would be announced in the coming months. We have another update, this time with two more new artists.
The game can be best explained as a mix between Tetris and Lumines, where players aim to cover as much of the field as they can with blocks, unlocking music in the process. New to this version is the ability to play against a friend in a two-player multiplayer mode, although the developer isn't revealing exactly what's in store, only saying it allows players to "chime" together.
The first song is "The Looping Song", created by Shlomo, one of the world's finest human beatboxers who, as well as being the first ever World Loopstation Champion, has provided his vocal talents for the likes of Jarvis Cocker, DJ Yoda, Mad Professor and Bjork.
The second song is "Tender Hooks" by British electronic music duo Plaid comprised of long-time friends Andy Turner and Ed Handley. Now on Warp Records and with an extensive and highly regarded body of work to their name, Plaid has a devoted clan of worldwide followers.
Zoe Mode Entertainment currently has Chime Super Deluxe set for a Spring 2011 release exclusively on PlayStation Network. For those interested in learning more about the game, the developer has released a brand-new trailer which can be found below.
