Chime Super Deluxe – The Definitive Music Puzzle Game

Hello PlayStation Community, I am Brynley Gibson from Zoe Mode, a UK based development studio that has created lots of music and social games and I am proud to share some exciting news with you about our new game Chime Super Deluxe which will be available to download soon from PlayStation Network.

Chime Super Deluxe - The Definitive Music Puzzle Game

We will be releasing lots more information on the game in the coming weeks, but today I wanted to officially introduce you to Chime Super Deluxe so you know what it is all about when it appears in the PlayStation Store.

Chime Super Deluxe is a unique and addictive block puzzle game featuring an innovative music creation element. Players must cover a number of different grids with irregular shapes to form rectangular blocks called quads. Every shape and quad generates musical notes and phrases. As the grid is gradually covered, the song builds up in the background.

Working their way towards that elusive 100% coverage, players create a unique remix of the music every time they play. Its a very simple game mechanic idea but one that provides captivating and mesmerising gameplay that will feed your aural senses like nothing else before.

Chime Super Deluxe - The Definitive Music Puzzle Game

“So what about the music?” I hear you ask. Well, we have a fantastic line up of music artists in the game who have allowed us to play around with their music tracks so that we can create this unique puzzle experience for you. The game comes with 10 music tracks and playable grids at launch and we can reveal 5 of these now. The other artists and tracks created exclusively for Chime Super Deluxe will be announced at a later date so keep checking back to the PlayStation.Blog for more details as we make them available.

The first five artist tracks are:

“Ooh Yeah” Moby
“Spilled Cranberries” Markus Schulz
“Brazil” Philip Glass
“For Silence” Paul Hartnoll (Orbital)
“Disco Ghosts” Fred Deakin (Lemon Jelly)

Chime Super Deluxe also supports two multiplayer modes which will allow players to “Chime” together, but more on how that works in a later post. We really can’t wait for you to play the game, which we think is easy to play but hard to master…having said that, we are sure that you will be spending hours trying to do just that!

We will have lots of competitions for you to enter so please be sure to visit the website, www.chimegame.com, ‘Like’ us on our Facebook page or follow the Zoe Mode studio on twitter.

We promise to reveal more on the game very soon and announce the release date, but for now please enjoy our new teaser trailer which will hopefully intrigue you even more!

Did you enjoy this?

This interests me, I like the concept.

Wouldn’t it be nice if a puzzle could be generated from our own music? *hint*

Philip Glass? Bought, anything that has that man’s truely wonderful and important music deserves my support. Especially in a game of all things.

Sounds interesting, but don’t really like trailers that don’t show the actual game itself.

@Danlisa Like VibRibbon on the PSone. That was great… they need to get that one on PSN

typo on comment 4 :(

is this the updated version or the xbox 360 chime game *

I bought the ‘normal’ Chime on Steam a while back, quite a cool little game! Must keep an eye on this :)

There will definitely be a demo :) This is much more than merely an updated version; we’ve revamped the scoring system, added co-op and competitive multiplayer modes, doubled the number of tracks and completely overhauled the visuals!

Bought this from Steam when it was released and loved it. Not going to buy it from the PSN, but I recommend everyone who hasn’t played Chime yet to consider buying it. Especially if you like Lumines.

was on the xbox 360 yonks ago,i think all monies made from the game went to a charity

Paul Hartnoll and Fred Deakin? SOLD!!
Markus Schulz? I think I’ll stick with Ferry and Armin.

Any chance of getting tracks from Darren Tate or Hybrid??

Well that trailer showed nothing. One has to wonder what the point of releasing it was.
