Remember Drool’s surreal rhythmic racer Thumper with its dark industrial synth? Puddle, the artist and composer behind it, is working on what seems to be a spiritual successor – Thrasher. The art style is as detailed and strange as Thumper, with players controlling a space eel and evolving it into a “megabeast.” Check out the announcement trailer.
Described as a “breakneck race” for survival, players must venture through the void, dashing and thrashing, fighting bosses. The controls are fast-paced, but you can sit back and chill out or try to earn a spot in the rankings by racking up combos. We’ll have to wait for more details and gameplay, but you can rest assured of a stellar soundtrack.
Thrasher is out in 2024 for consoles, PC and Meta Quest headsets. It supports haptics and spatial audio, seemingly confirming its launch for Xbox Series X/S and PS5. Stay tuned for more details in the coming months.
