Once you’re in Audiosurf 2, head to the Steam Workshop to get some new modes and new graphics! I’ve already uploaded a 2-button party mode, a 3-player puzzle mode, and a pink skin.

This week I’ve been working on optimizing Audiosurf 2 performance. It can now averages about 60 frames per second on my little ultra-portable! This machine is limited by its GPU, so choosing a minimalist skin would get the framerate even higher.

Yeah! Definitely my favorite Audiosurf 2 quote so far. Thanks for the mention Jeff and Alex!

See this quote and more on the Giant Bomb PAX panel video (the Audiosurf 2 stuff starts at about 11:50):

I spent today creating a 3-player co-op puzzle mode for Audiosurf 2. Triple Vision! The mod interface needed some additional features to make this possible, but it’s all there now.

I’m really happy with how the Sandstorm skin for Audiosurf 2 is coming together.

Even better than our 3d-printed songs, we’ll also have lots of these daughter-printed Audiosurf 2 minimap necklaces to give away. She’s been very busy printing and cutting these custom shrinky dinks for her favorite songs. They are awesome!

3D-printed songs will be on display at PAX this weekend. They came out really nice!

Each one follows the shape of an Audiosurf 2 track for that song.
