Thumper bringing its beautiful 'rhythm violence' to PlayStation 4

Michael McWhertor is a journalist with more than 17 years of experience covering video games, technology, movies, TV, and entertainment.

Developer Drool's beautiful rhythm game Thumper, in which you control a chrome space beetle on psychedelic highways, is coming to PlayStation 4 next year, the developer announced today.

"To reach synesthetic bliss, you must go through rhythm hell," developers Marc Flury and Brian Gibson wrote on the PlayStation Blog. "There's no blood or gore in Thumper, but you will feel the violence."

The IGF award-winning game is coming to PS4 and PC via Steam in 2016.

Watch Thumper in action in the video above, and check out this Polygon video for more gameplay.
