You can view the announcement and trailer below:

Choice Provisions (previously known as Gaijin Games) today announced the Steam release of BIT.TRIP RERUNNER + RUNNER MAKER – a love letter to its beloved BIT.TRIP franchise. The rhythm platformer that started it all is back with new mechanics, trippy Unreal 5-powered visuals, and a KILLER soundtrack inspired by the franchise’s deepest cuts.

For the very first time, Choice Provisions has also included an official level editor with the game: RUNNER MAKER – which allows players to create and share ever more challenging custom levels with BIT.TRIP fans all over the world. RUNNER MAKER makes it dead easy to fine-tune obstacles and shape beat-driven gameplay to deliver countless, stunningly varied BIT.TRIP RERUNNER levels. In fact, almost every single level in the shipped game was built with RUNNER MAKER!

Whether players enjoy the pre-designed levels in BIT.TRIP RERUNNER or venture into user-generated content, the combination of rhythmic gameplay, retro-inspired visuals, and an infectious chiptune soundtrack result in a memorable, hard-to-put-down gaming experience. Developed with the help of Brazilian outfit Gamecraft Studios, BIT.TRIP RERUNNER skillfully tests players’ reflexes and rewards their creativity – including tasteful nods to BIT.TRIP greats.

“BIT.TRIP RERUNNER initially began as a three-month experiment aimed at familiarizing our studio with the Unreal engine,” says Mike Roush, co-founder of Choice Provisions. “However, as development unfolded, our passion for the project grew out of control – compelling us to expand it with even more features. The driving force behind the BIT.TRIP RERUNNER project was twofold: listening to our dedicated fans, and acknowledging our own infatuation with the original game’s format. Fans yearned for a return to the authentic RUNNER experience – and the persistent demand for a level editor from the community further cemented our plan to deliver everything the community wanted and more.”
