Going the Distance: Gaijin Games on Runner2, Sequels, and a Worse Name for Japan

NWR: Bit.Trip Presents Runner2: Future Legend of Rhythm Alien serves as a perfect metaphor for Gaijin Games. Its hero, Commander Video, is ever pushing forward, besting whatever obstacles come his way. So too has Gaijin Games triumphed over adversity. Co-founded by Alex Neuse, Mike Roush, and Chris Osborn, the studio's debut effort was the BIT.TRIP series for WiiWare. While Nintendo pushed the service initially, it quickly became outdated and lapped by its competition. But, Gaijin Games stuck to its guns and continued to provide the service and Nintendo fans with their excellent series of titles. And just as Commander Video makes his return in Runner2, Gaijin Games continues to provide us with terrific content. (BIT.TRIP Runner 2, Culture)
