Runner3: Choice Provisions, developer of the Bit.Trip series has announced their next game, Runner3. It’ll feature the return of Commander video.
Runner3 Release Date
The Studio has provide much details into their project except of a short teaser trailer and a release window for the game which is 2017. On the game’s website, Choice Provisions wrote: “Too often, games focus on rewarding hardcore players and perpetuating the idea that if you play on easy, you’re somehow less of a gamer. What if games don’t bring you as much joy if they’re ultra-challenging? Maybe that doesn’t make you ‘less’. Maybe that just makes you ‘you'”, wrote Choice Provisions co-founder Alex Neuse.
“So in Runner3, we’re focusing on bringing our notions of difficulty and what makes a game rewarding front and center. The focus in Runner3 is on giving the player a joyous experience. In fact, one of our development pillars for the game is: ‘Runner3 needs to be a joyous experience in every moment–both in the game, and during its creation.’
“If you like being challenged relentlessly, will you get that? Yes. (It is us, after all.) But if you prefer being able to experience the entire game without being ultra-challenged, you’ll be able to do that as well–without penalty. We have some very interesting tricks up our sleeve as to how we’re going to accomplish this, and we’ll be revealing them here over the course of development.”
The studio urges people to interact with them and help with the development of Runner3. They plan to gather feedback and create polls for the purpose of developing level names, unlockable outfits, etc.
Of course the developers have said anything about the game but since Bit.Trip Runner games come to console, handheld and PC platforms, we can guess about Runner3.
