BIT.TRIP VOID is a synesthetic exploration of rhythm and music as they pertain to our everyday lives and moods. In a control scheme brand new to the series, yet wholly familiar to gamers, the player is given complete freedom to move about the screen wherever they desire, interacting with the music in brand new ways. The classic gameplay aesthetic remains, as color—and the absence of color—are explored to the fullest.
Trip out and see if you can survive the onslaught of Beats and further your own BIT.TRIP.
Set in the golden age of pirates, this is your chance to become pirate king and conquer the Caribbean.
