Developer Chilled Mouse has announced that its music puzzle title Chime Sharp is now available on PS4. The Xbox One version will release this Friday, March 24th.
Chime Sharp takes the concept of the original Chime to the next level, forming a crossover between Tetris, a music sequencer and a hypnotic dream. Relish in sixteen new levels, experimental modes, new-era connectivity and a melodic ambient soundtrack of artists, including CHVRCHES, Steve Reich and Kavinsky, tessellating shapes on a grid to build a beautiful music crescendo of your own design.
"With Chime Sharp the core rules are the same, featuring the same mesmerizing, hypnotic electronic soundtrack with songs from some of the most experimental trailblazing artists out there", said Ian Baverstock, CEO of Chilled Mouse. "With a clean, sleek new aesthetic and new experimental modes, Chime has returned and this time it wants to become your favourite mixtape.
"I was absolutely thrilled to be a part of the Chime Sharp team. The Chime series offers a fresh style of gameplay that I have never seen before - you can really feel the music working with the game, seamlessly integrated for full immersion", said Chipzel, one of the artists behind the music for Chime Sharp. "My track, 'Psychonaut', was created with this gameplay style in mind. Through entwining multiple layers, which progressively build to compliment the final arrangement, I wanted to portray the intention of rewarding the player as they advance, through the use of evocative melodies and euphoric transitions."
Chime Sharp is priced at $9.99/£7.99/€9.99.
