Thumper trailer tunes into former Harmonix team's rhythm

Thumper is a rhythm game crossed with an on-rails WipeOut-style action-track racer, featuring a sinister nemesis called Crakhed.

Shown in action for the first time via this week's release of an early trailer, the game is being made by developer Drool, which was set up by former Harmonix lead programmer Marc Flury and Brian Gibson, bass guitarist with the well-regarded noise-metal band Lightning Bolt, and also a former developer at Harmonix.

According to Drool, the game will be released some time in 2014, although no platforms have been announced. Thumper features a sci-fi beetle on a fast track, dodging obstacles provided by the creepy-looking Crakhed.
