Runner 2 running in debug mode


Gaijin Games revealed the first footage of Runner 2, the XBLA/PSN followup to its Bit.Trip hit. We should mention that it's extremely early code, with placeholder graphics, running in debug mode. You can pretend it's a new graphical style that's even blockier than the original (though Runner 2 will actually be super-smooth).

Even in this early state, you can see some of the new content, like a jump-slide move. More moves means ... more potentially wrong moves at any point, and more deaths. You'll actually see a couple of deaths in this demo video, proving it's still Runner.
