Beat The Game Hits The Dance Floor Soon

Posted on 17 Aug 2017

Beat The Game, the Salvador Dali inspired point and click adventure in which you play a tragically not-fashion minded lanky dude, Mistik as he goes on a surreal adventure following a motorbike accident. Throughout the game players will gather music and sound samples and be able to create their own track by piecing together their library of samples. This is made all the better for fans of club music because the game is scored by house and techno producer, Mark Houle.

Beat The Game will launch on PC, Mac, and Linux on 7 September 2017. Also, there’s a multi-ballsack’d Beholder for some reason. No doubt it’s lurking up there as the video preview image, just dangling its balls all over this whole thing.

San Francisco, North America – August 17th, 2017 – The folks over at independent studio, Worm Animation, today announced that their debut title, point and click music adventure—Beat The Game— will launch on September 7th on Steam for PC, Mac and Linux, with an Xbox One release scheduled for later in 2017. To accompany the announcement, the studio are proud to release the latest trailer focusing on the music of the illustrious house and techno producer, Marc Houle, who contributed to the game’s dynamic soundtrack. Beat The Game combines beautiful, handcrafted characters and environments with classic 3D point and click adventuring, while adding an intuitive music making mechanic. Inspired as much by twentieth century surrealists, Dali and Ernst, as modern European techno, Beat The Game is a charming adventure game with a heart made of music.

Beat The Game is about finding pleasure in music. With Mistik’s sequencer, anyone will be able to create their own unique club track within the game,” said Cemre Ozkurt, founder of Worm Animation. “The world and our characters hopefully show how transformative and fun making music can be. As our debut title, we’re so excited to finally share our own vision of the classic point and click game. We’ve built a beautiful 3D environment, characters of real personality and a dynamic, shifting soundtrack to accompany the action.”

With a background in beautifully crafted film animation, Worm Animation takes players on a journey with Mistik, the hero of Beat The Game, to uncover the mysterious, abstract universe he finds himself in after a motorbike crash. Mistik, though, is no ordinary hero—he’s a music producer. With the help of his trusty recorder, Mistik must collect the samples scattered around Beat The Game’s beautiful, dream-like environments in order to create the ultimate track. Esteemed house and techno producer, Marc Houle, is scoring the soundtrack, ensuring the player is always capable of crafting their very own club thumper.

From discarded drum sticks to the clang of a stone on metal, Beat The Game’s environments are littered with an array of sounds and colourful characters. As you explore a hazy, surreal world, discovering interesting sounds, you gradually build up a library of samples. Crack open your sequencer and the audio of the game comes to life, allowing you to use your samples in any combination you like. From mellow, dusty rollers, to upbeat, acid house, Beat The Game’s intuitive sequencer ensures every combination sounds good—it’s just a case of creating something that fits your mood. With a cast of warm, funny characters and a visual style that draws on classic animation, Beat The Game feels timeless, a journey about the joy of creating music.
