Just one new indie game this Friday, though this is likely to be the calm before the Gamescom storm next week! Thumper, from Drool LLC, is a classic rhythm-action game with blistering speed and brutal physicality. You play as a space beetle, screaming down the endless tracks and crashing through punishing obstacles with simple, airtight controls. Hurtle forward, master new moves, reach overwhelming velocities, and survive epic boss battles. Every crushing impact is interwoven with a pounding original soundtrack. To reach synesthetic bliss, you must conquer rhythm hell. Pick it up here for $19.99.
