The long lasting appeal of Audiosurf.

Long after it's award winning appearance at the Game Developers Conference earlier this year, Dylan Fiitterer's Audiosurf, has continued to garner praise, and fans without falling into the trap of being considered an overly hyped independent game festival winner. Yes kids, this game is actually as good as the critics have made it out to be, and it could possibly be the first game with an "endless" soundtrack, depending of course on how much music a player has on their hard drive. And that's what makes Audiosurf high in the replay value, and over all appeal. The game is what you make of it, and what songs you decide to play determines the level design and difficulty.

To illustrate that point, I decided to start screen-capping some Audiosurf sessions I've had, uploading them to youtube for all to see. Here are some of the tracks that I like to play every time I boot up the game. I definitely suggest you get a hold of these songs and try them yourself, if you don't already have them.

Bit Shifter - March of the Nucleotides.

Bit Shifter's chiptune music works so well with Audiosurf, it's awesome!

Audio Surf - Peter Bjorn - Objects of my Affection

Peter Bjorn & John, this is one of the songs that I HAVE to play more than once.

Audio Surf - Tomoyasu - Battle Without Honor or Humani

This song is not as crazy as the previous two, but this track made famous by Kill Bill, is still a fun play.
