Wow! So Excite! The music game I’ve been working on for the past two years with my buds Eric and Matt over at GL33k is now available for Windows and Mac through the Devolver Digital Double Debut Humble Bundle! This is pay-what-you-want bundle of games and movies. You can also choose to put some of your payment towards Brandon Boyer’s Cancer Treatment Relief Fund. He’s a super awesome dude that has been instrumental in bringing indie games the attention and respect they deserve and has been straight up stiffed by his insurance company because they are invoking a super dicey pre-existing condition decision.
What’s Cosmic DJ, you may be wondering? It’s a crazy cool music game where you can sequence up to five instruments over backing tracks and then the game will remix all of your sequences into a song you can share with your friends. In other words, it’s a super fun way for non-musicians and musicians alike to make music! Here, maybe watching our trailer will explain it better:
You can also make cover art for your songs right in the game while you wait for the song to be recorded. Here’s a track I made recently:
And there’s more to come: we will be releasing Cosmic DJ for iOS in the near future and hopefully bringing the game to Steam as well. I’ve also got a couple technical blog posts lined up about some of the stickier issues we encountered while preparing the desktop release.
