Non-profit XBLA game Chime dated

Musical puzzler donates to charity.

OneBigGame, an inspiring new non-profit publisher, has announced a 3rd February release date for Chime.

Developed by Zoe Mode and available from Xbox Live Arcade, this will be the first game on OBG's label. What's more, 60 per cent of the 400 MSP (£3.40/€4.80) asking price will be donated to children's charities around the world.

Feel bad already, don't you?

Chime's big idea grid-based block arrangement to music. Clumping the shapes together in groups of 3x3 produces a quad, and quads provide coverage and different noises when the beat-line sweeps past. You'll need to cover the entire grid to progress a level.

Musical celebrities Moby and Orbital's Paul Hartnoll are among those providing tunes, and there are a couple of different modes to explore.

Look out for our thoughts closer to release.
