140 is a platform game independently developed by Jeppe Carlsen, known for his game-play direction for Playdead‘s Limbo. The game is described as a “minimalistic platformer”, using electronic music to create synesthesia as the player makes its way through four different levels, each with its own sound-track. The game-play has been compared to other similar games which involve music synchronization like Sound Shapes and the Bit.Trip series, though with difficult platforming elements comparable to games in the Mega Man series. The game was released on Microsoft Windows, OS X, and Linux systems in October 2013, on Xbox One in August 2016, and on PlayStation 4 as well as on Wii U in September 2016. Later then, Nintendo Switch version was released in January 2020. (wiki)
