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.
