They Mastered Rhythm Games. How Does iNiS Handle Tower Offense?

Japanese developer iNiS — the name's an acronym for "infinite Noise of the inner Soul" — has spent the past decade and a half perfecting the art of the rhythm game. From classics like Gitaroo Man and Elite Beat Agents to not-so-classics like last year's DLC-packed Demon's Score, iNiShave mastered the melding of sound… » 6/21/13 6:00pm 6/21/13 6:00pm

When Japanese developer iNiS was confirmed to be attached to the Xbox 360 singing game, Lips, it might have felt like an odd project for the team.

First Look At 'Lips', iNiS' Xbox 360 Karaoke Game, And Its Bedazzling…

A title that's guaranteed to be "announced" at Microsoft's E3 Media Briefing this Monday is Lips, the iNiS developed answer to Sony's SingStar. The musically inclined team behind Osu! Tatakae! Ouendan, Gitaroo Man and Elite Beat Agents was previously rumored to be behind the sing-along title, but consider it doubly… » 7/11/08 4:40pm 7/11/08 4:40pm
