Insomniac Supports Harmonix Amplitude Kickstarter
The Harmonix Amplitude Kickstarter campaign doesn’t seem like it will reach its goal, but Insomniac has backed the project with a $7,500 pledge. This is the nudge it really needed to help bring more attention to the game. If the Kickstarter campaign meets its $775,000 goal, it will just barely be achieved.
Amplitude was originally released on the PS2 back in 2003. It was the second rhythm-action music game developed by Harmonix for the PS2–the first being FreQuency. The current project would be an HD remake for the PS3 and PS4 and will feature original music–some composers you may recognize from other video games. Artists Jim Guthrie (Superbrothers: Sword & Sworcery EP, Indie Game: The Movie), Anamanaguchi (Scott Pilgrim Vs. the World), Danny Baranowsky (Super Meat Boy, Canabalt), C418 (Minecraft), Kasson Crooker (FreQuency, Amplitude, Symbion Project) and Freezepop (FreQuency, Amplitude) have been confirmed so far. And with Insomniac’s pledge, we should expect their 20th anniversary song, Crazy Ride, to be part of Amplitude HD as well.
