This Amplitude is a reimagining of the 2003 Harmonix game of the same name (which was itself a sequel to Frequency). In order to get the game partially funded, Harmonix turned to Kickstarter to ask for contributions amounting $775,000 from fans. Some of the rewards for pledging included being involved in the song decision process for the game, including one's song in the game (provided that person owned the rights to said song), being a part of Harmonix's panels at PAX Prime and PAX East, Dinner with Harmonix's co-founders, Dinner with Tim Schafer, or being flown out to Harmonix headquarters for various activities. The Kickstarter reached its goal with about 20 hours remaining on May 22nd, 2014. The game is planned for release in Early 2015 on PSN for PS3, and PS4 (Vita is planned as a stretch goal but has not been confirmed at this time).
In addition to songs submitted by fans Harmonix announced that the following artists would be contributing original music to the game:
- Anamanaguchi (Scott Pilgrim vs. the World)
- C418 (Minecraft)
- Danny Baranowsky (Super Meat Boy, Canabalt)
- Freezepop (FreQuency, Amplitude)
- Jim Guthrie (Superbrothers: Sword & Sworcery EP)
- Kasson Crooker (FreQuency, Amplitude, Symbion Project)
- George & Jonathan
Autumn Games also confirmed that the track Unfinished Business from Skullgirls would be playable in the game.
