Beat The Game | The Music Of Marc Houle:
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. So this ensures the player can craft a own club thumper for the launch on Linux, Mac and Windows. Which will be hit Steam and Humble Store.
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. So as players explore a hazy, surreal world, discovering interesting sounds. You gradually build up a library of the games samples. Crack open your sequencer and the audio of the game comes to life. Allowing players 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.
