A portion of a LeakBattery interview with Alex Neuse of Gaijin Games…
LB: So have you guys already started on the next game or are you just enjoying the release of Bit. Trip Beat at the moment?
Alex Neuse: There is no rest for the weary. We are well into development on the next game.
LB: So is there anything you could tell us about the next game? Maybe a hint of games you may take inspiration from?
Alex Neuse: Sadly, I have been sworn to secrecy as to the specifics of the next game, but I can tell you the following:
Unlike a lot of sequels that sort of “rinse-and-repeat”, the next episode of the BIT.TRIP saga will have completely different gameplay from BEAT. However, it will still be rhythm/music based.
LB: Will it have multiple players like Bit. Trip Beat or am I asking something I shouldn’t?
Alex Neuse: Ask anything you want to! There will be a multiplayer element to the next game, yes.
