Soundtrack Lineup Announced for the Upcoming Music Puzzler ‘Chime Sharp’
Game publisher Chilled Mouse today revealed the complete list of artists whose music tracks were selected as the foundation for the anticipated music puzzle title, Chime Sharp.

“We’re so excited that there’s going to be a Chime Sharp level based on our song, Science/Visions, I can’t think of another game which gives the player such a satisfying interaction between music and the game world.” – Iain Cook of Chvrches.

About Chime Sharp
Described as a crossover between a music sequencer and Tetris, Chime Sharp tasks players to place various shapes together in a race against the clock, while the passing beatline reads the blocks as notes, remixing melodies from various pop songs. The goal is to cover the whole playing grid by completing quads of 3×3 or more and generate points while enjoying melodic works by musicians from around the world. With a brand new song list, fifteen unique levels and experimental modes, the beloved Chime is finally back and ready to shine in its complete makeover.
