Fans positively “review bomb” Hi-Fi Rush to support Tango Gameworks


Fans have begun to “reverse review bomb” Hi-Fi RUSH in support of Tango Gameworks following their closure by Microsoft.

Earlier this week, Microsoft announced they were closing some of their smaller studios such as Arkane Austin (Redfall), Roundhouse Games, and surprisingly Tango Gameworks which released Hi-Fi RUSH to critical acclaim last year.

To make matters even more confusing, Xbox Game Studios head Matt Booty expressed a desire to release better but smaller games saying: “We need smaller games that give us prestige and awards.” (Note: Hi-Fi RUSH received multiple awards)

You can check out the “review bomb” of Hi-Fi RUSH on the game’s Steam page here. At the time of writing it’s received around 800 positive reviews in the last 24 hours.

While large game publishers continue to snap up and discard studios, here at Niche Gamer we’ll continue to do our best to highlight the independent games that we think look fun. You can check out our Niche Spotlight category here.
