Get ready for pulsing waves of color in Vectronom, a rhythm-based 3D puzzle platformer that is now available on Steam and Nintendo Switch.
Ludopium, Vectronom’s developer, alongside publisher and co-producers ARTE have also dropped a trailer filled with psychedelic EDM, flashing bright colors, dancing cubes, and some very odd characters that look as if they fell out of a 90s themed cyberpunk film.
In Vectronom, players guide a cube in a world filled with a frenetic beat and across an ever changing geometric landscape that pulses to the beat. Standard three dimensional thinking is challenged by the colorful madness and rhythmic riddles that has an ever increasing difficulty as the player progresses.
Vectronom also has the unique feature of using alternate controllers such as MIDI instruments or dance pads. Instead of using your fingers to mash keys on the PC one can use their feet to get down with the music beat. Players on both platforms can accept this new challenge alone or with friends via local or drop-in/drop-out multiplayer mode.
The game features a challenging solo campaign design to entrance players with the colorful environment and powerful electronic soundtrack. In addition hobbyist composers can sync their own tracks with the game by connecting an analog synthesizer to the headphone output. This feature is only available on PC.
In addition the game has been localized into English, French, Italian, Spanish, Dutch, and Portuguese. Post-launch plans include the release of a level editor to both versions that allows players to create their own levels using curated beats and then challenge the world with their never before seen puzzles.
Vectronom is now available on Nintendo Switch and Steam for Windows and Mac at a price of $9.99 USD. For more information visit the game’s site at vectronom.arte.tv.
