Another one of those 'I'd buy this game if I had a DSi/PSP/PS3/360' posts

Chime, the first game from non-profit publisher OneBigGame, has hit Xbox LIVE Arcade, and it looks pretty darn hot.

I like the minimalist look of this musical puzzler, developed by Zoe Mode, and I downright love the way the music (from artists like Moby and Orbital's Paul Hartnoll) builds upon itself. I'm not so sure about the actual gameplay, though--it seems like the whole "fill up the screen with Tetris-like blocks" could get a bit boring.

Still, if I owned an Xbox 360 I'd more than likely drop 400 Microsoft Points ($5) for the title, especially since net proceeds will be donated to Save the Children and Starlight Children’s Foundation.

The loading speed on that video was monumentally slow! Wow.

It looks like a cool game, though. And if Moby's in, I'm in.

Huh. Maybe I should look for a better video.

Anyway, yeah, it definitely seems interesting. Sadly, I won't be a 260 owner anytime soon.
