Musical Puzzler 'Chime' Announced, Proceeds Going to Charity

Non-profit publisher OneBigGame has announced its first for-charity game 'Chime,' an musical puzzler by Crush developer Zoe Mode crossing Lumines with Tetris.

Sporting music by artists including Moby and Orbital's Paul Hartnoll, Chime hits Xbox Live Arcade this winter with a PC release also coming "soon." All net proceeds on OneBigGame titles from a "limited "exclusivity period"--four to twelve months--go to charity projects including Save the Children and Starlight Children's Foundation.


Other upcoming OneBigGame releases include PaRappa the Rapper creator Masaya Matsuura's iPhone "reinvention" of the rhythm genre 'WINtA,' Shiny founder David Perry's remake of "one of his favorite ZX Spectrum games," and an "adventure version of one of the most played casual games in the world" by Broken Sword creator Charles Cecil.

For spot of Chime's Lumines-y, Tetris-y action, look to the trailer below.
