Once again, getting the high score is all that matters in life

Aksys Games, a publisher of interactive entertainment software, is pleased to unveil BIT.TRIP BEAT, exclusively for WiiWare™! Developed by Gaijin Games, BIT.TRIP BEAT marks the first adventure of Commander Video. Using the Wii Remote™, players will test their twitch skills as they battle through a retro-esque universe, familiar to the old generation, yet reinvented for the new.


Everything comes from something. We were before we became. From life comes rhythm, and from rhythm comes life. We are beings of information. Everything is a conduit for learning. We communicate in bits and bytes. And we will return to something once we become nothing; after our BIT.TRIP is complete.

BIT.TRIP BEAT is a crazy mix of 80s aesthetics and modern game design,” states Michael Manzanares, BIT.TRIP BEAT Producer at Aksys Games. “It’s challenging, yet fair, and completely addicting.”

The Gaijin Games team wanted to make a game that used the tools of today to inspire the fun of yesterday. Our goal was to make a game that was as simple in gameplay as the games of the early 80s, and equally as fun—even though gamers’ tastes have changed over the years,” continues Alex Neuse, Designer at Gaijin Games. “And let’s face it, sometimes a really good videogame is just awesome. We hope you enjoy BIT.TRIP BEAT.”
