RHYTHM OF COLORED LINES: THE FIRST LOOK AT SPARPWEED’S MINIMALIST RACER, CHALO CHALO

Looking every bit like an even further abstracted & awesomely organic take on Nintendo’s bit Generations cult-classic dotstream (the younger sibling of WiiWare’s light trax), Chalo Chalo is a new game from Sparpweed, the Dutch indies behind the recently featured co-op platformer ibb and obb.

Coming just as highly recommended by Vlambeer’s JW Nijman for local-multiplayer play as was the incredible Samurai Gunn, Chalo strips its courses to a single screen and replaces the slip-stream effect from dotstream with minimalist and vaguely Constructivist terrain that can either slow or speed your racer.

The game will also include additional items and powerups, which, as proved in the video above, can turn what initially seems like wild veering into instant reversals of fortune — an exploit that will likely get balanced out of the finished product.

Still heavily in development and having primarily been showcased as part of Dutch Game Garden’s Indigo exhibitions, you can follow Chalo‘s progress via Sparpweed’s blog here.
