The Tharsis contest has drawn to a close

Hey, remember that Tharsis contest we announced back in January? The one where we asked people to submit funny Tharsis images of their own creation? Well it was a thing and it happened, regardless of whether you remember it or not. 

We gave people total freedom to make any kind of image they wanted, which led to us receiving a nice variety of submissions. The one thing they all had in common, however, was goodness.

This, of course, made choosing a winner really hard.

After mulling it over for several days and nights, we finally managed to choose the winning submissions. Are you ready for this?

The winners are…


That’s right. Everyone who submitted an image will be taking home a Tharsis mission patch. The only way to lose was by not playing at all!

With that addressed, it’s time to bask in the glory of all the submissions we received:



 Tommy Hetrick


Dave Beaudoin


Dr. Civilization



Grant Fleming


Jake Sauppe






 Joshua Romano


John Kemp


 Christopher Swartz


Jorge Bocanegra

This week is filled with announcements!

Hey everyone!

Although we’ve been pretty proactive about announcing all our upcoming stuff on Twitter and Facebook, I thought it might be a good idea to write everything up in a blog post. There’s just too much going on right now and having it all in one place seems like a good idea.

Let’s start with Tharsis. Many of you have been asking us when the “Missions” mode would be coming. A fair question, to be sure, and I’m excited to say that it’s coming to Steam this Friday! There will be five missions at first, with the plan to add more as time goes on. We hope you like it!

And then there’s Shutshimi, a game that could not be any more different from Tharsis. It’s been out on PS4, Vita and Steam since August, and now it’s making its way to Wii U! Better yet, it’s arriving there tomorrow (2/4)!

If you didn’t know, Shutshimi was developed by an awesome studio called Neon Deity Games. They make really great games (as evidenced by Shutshimi) and we’re honored they let us publish one of them!

We have another announcement to make, but unfortunately it will have to wait until tomorrow! I’ll say this about it, though: it’s something people have been asking us about for a long time. Stay tuned!

Hey everyone! We feel like we’ve done a pretty good job of getting the word out about all six of the original BIT.TRIP games being out now on PS4 and Vita (having it announced during the PlayStation Experience keynote certainly helped!), but if you didn’t get the memo, this blog post is for you!

If you fire up your PS4 or Vita right now, you’ll find something called “The BIT.TRIP” in the PlayStation Store. Don’t be scared - it’s just a compilation featuring BIT.TRIP BEAT, BIT.TRIP CORE, BIT.TRIP VOID, BIT.TRIP RUNNER, BIT.TRIP FATE, and BIT.TRIP FLUX, at the extremely affordable price of $9.99. There’s also cross-buy, cross-save, cross-platform trophies, and cross-platform leaderboards!

The BIT.TRIP will be making its way to PS3 in the near future, and will be free to those who already purchased the PS4 or Vita versions!

Enjoy! And stay tuned for more awesome announcements!

P.S. - Tharsis is coming to PS4 and Steam on January 12! That’s less than a month away!
