A downloadable game for Windows

Thought lost after its initial discovery 6 years ago, the Byteshark (Carcharodon Digitalis),  a small population of this unique marine animal has been re-discovered alive and well, lurking off the digital coast of the Bit.Trip nation.

Bytesharks are doomed to short, rhythmic lives, reflecting so-called "Beat-Blocks" in order to derive sustance. Failing to return even a mere handful of these can quickly lead to starvation and death for the poor creature!

An incredible living fossil, this XNA-powered creature can only survive in 1280 x 720 resolutions, and will attempt to coerce your monitor to match! Once approached, press "Space" to begin play, and press "Esc" at any time to abandon ship.


This game is provided as-is, and will not receive updates.
