Have you ever had the oddly specific fantasy of being a Star Wars Jedi wielding two different colored lightsabers, while also attacking a barrage of cubes to the beat of some sick dubstep? Then do we have an oddly specific game for you! Beat Saber.
Beat Saber is a VR rhythm game by Hyperbolic Magnetism. The player, holding 2 different colored sabers of light (totally not lightsabers) slashes at directional blocks as they approach to the tempo of a hardcore and exciting original soundtrack. We've seen this game scattered throughout time at the occasional convention and expo, and now that game is nearing completion.
Hyperbolic Magnetism is a small indie game studio based in the Czech Republic. They are best known for their mobile game, Chameleon Run, a color-coded auto-runner game. The game would go on to win several awards from the places such as the App Store and Indiecade. The studio began with two guys, Lokiman and Split, who loved the technology behind making games, and wanted to be a part of that.
With a release date of "2018," details of the game's premiere remain unknown, but the release of a recent teaser trailer (seen above) certainly has us hoping it's soon.
