Our second game preview from PAX East is a new game being developed by Harmonix. Back in May of 2014, the group successfully received backing on their Kickstarter for the game Amplitude. The project received over $800,000, just making past their initial funding goal. Since then the Hamonix team has been working on the game and had an early alpha build available to try out at this year’s PAX East and GDC.
Amplitude is a rhythm action game based off the developer’s earlier titles like FreQuency and the PS2 version of Amplitude. The last Amplitude game was released back in 2003, over a decade ago. This new game is a remake/reboot of the original and hopes to bring the fun of Amplitude to a new generation of consoles and players. (more…)
