Since Worm Animation have released a new video for #BeatTheGame. We decided to share some news, because Linux, Mac and #Windows will be support. And since the focus is on the game’s hero, Mistik. While also including the #games mysterious tree figure, Moss. The video showcases Beat The Game’s beautiful hand-drawn character style. Since this draws influence from the European surrealists like Dali and Ernst. While also making the Worm Animation’s pedigree in film animation clearly apparent. Most notably their contribution to Oscar nominated short film, Gopher Broke.
So Mistik is a music producer who makes beats for a living. Since he’s equipped with his trusty sampler, he travels to create new sounds out of everyday objects. From a simple wooden stick to a metal can. Mistik doesn’t adhere to our concepts of dimension, distance, time or space. This is because he lives in a dream world, a musician’s dream.
Beat The Game’s second character, the hulking Moss. Hence the bassline maker who lives underground, only making himself visible at night. While Moss doesn’t make entire tracks. Therefore his basslines are exactly what Mistik needs. Give him the tracks that extra kick and bump in energy. So together and with other characters. Mistik and Moss form a colourful cast in a bizarre world driven by the love of music.
