The BIT.TRIP Runner series is set to return with BIT.TRIP Runner 3 which will be released at some point in 2017.
While we don’t know too much about what’s planned, a new blog has gone live outlining their objectives for the new game.
So in Runner3, we’re focusing on bringing our notions of difficulty and what makes a game rewarding front and center. The focus in Runner3 is on giving the player a joyous experience. In fact, one of our development pillars for the game is:
“Runner3 needs to be a joyous experience in every moment–both in the game, and during its creation.”
If you like being challenged relentlessly, will you get that? Yes. (It is us, after all.) But if you prefer being able to experience the entire game without being ultra-challenged, you’ll be able to do that as well–without penalty. We have some very interesting tricks up our sleeve as to how we’re going to accomplish this, and we’ll be revealing them here over the course of development, so keep checking back.
A short teaser video gives nothing away other than Runner 3 will be released next year. Oh, and a logo.
