The synaesthetic platforming of Sound Shapes
is getting bolstered by three tracks from pseudo country/hip-hop/folk/whatever
artist Beck, Billboard reports. "Cities," "Spiral Staircases," and "Touch the People" will apparently each get their own levels in this August's PlayStation 3/Vita game. All three tracks are brand new for Sound Shapes
, rather than from Beck's lengthy discography.
Beck joins co-developer I Am Robot and Proud (Shaw-Han Liem), Sworcery
composer Jim Guthrie, and notoriously game-centric DJ Deadmau5 on the game's soundtrack, which, like, it's gonna be a super good soundtrack, right? We totally agree.
When the Deadmau5 collaboration was announced
, Queasy Games told us that his tracks weren't just implemented into game levels, but also part of the game's level editor, allowing players to break apart the track and use it to create a soundscape behind the platforming. It stands to reason that Beck's tracks will also get this functionality, making this news all the more thrilling
