Hello. i really enjoyed reading your writing about advice for new rhythm game makers, and i enjoyed playing this game a lot as a prototype. however, i do not think i would buy a full version.
the core conceit of the game seems designed to obfuscate the player's knowledge of what to do and cause them to fail based on arbitrary renderings of the projects translation between movement and music. i also don't enjoy single-input rhythm games or ones with auto-fail conditions.
i did finish playing what was the first long song because i respect your game design understanding and methodology. i am excited to check out more projects from you in the future. <3
Hello, thank you for the message! You're right and that's the whole mechanic of the gameplay, to introduce a new notation of rhythm different from VSRGs. Wrote more about it here , and if you don't find it interesting enough to hold your attention then it's not a a game for you. Thanks for playing though :)
The game feels greath. But, I wish I would hear the music before playing it. Because, I don't know what is next and stop listening music, just looking for boxes of path. Thus, my experience going down. The game turn into a reflex challange.
Hello Feroand, thank you for your feedback. Right now we are working on a practice mode so you can hear the rhythms and start from anywhere in the stage. We think that will help, it will be out soon for the paid version of the game.
Whoa, this game is brutal! Either that, or I have zero rhythm; yeah in fact that's probably it. I love the way such a simple thing can be used to create something so advanced, great idea and execution! (If only I had the necessary skill to actually play it...)
I've played this game already way to often. Since I picked up base lessons last year, I've been looking for a way to get my rhythm skills to a higher level. The unique thing about this is the orbiting ball that makes you understand how to traverse timing in relation to your previous note. A visual aid that made the click for me.
Played rhythm doc aswell, and i really missed that aid.
Thanks rikwilbrink! Hearing about people improving their rhythm with this game is my favourite thing, thanks for telling me. I'm glad you understand the timing from the geometry, it's a weird system haha. Good luck with bass playing!
Thanks for the well wishes. I'm progressing, not fast, but i'm pretty sure that's progression alone is enough. I do have a feature request that might improve my skills AND improve the game from a challenge/endorfine perspective, is to color each tile based on your timing. So that, for example: beginners know that they're always early on the 2nd and 4th beat. more experienced players might feel compelled to replay for a perfect green path.
I hope it's an easy change, like: currentTile.color = timingToColor(timeDelta);
This is a really good idea, and you are right its not hard to implement! it does mean that we wont have the dancing colours on each beat though, i will have to try to see if it looks good. Thank you for the suggestion!
This is such an affecting game. Sucks you in and you emerge with the atmosphere. I love it. Although, I've played v0.3.1 so much, v0.4 feels awkward. As a nostalgic memory, I really would like to keep the old version in my archives to listen and play sometimes.
Is there a way I can download the old version? I would love the response from you even if it is negative.
Hey gokcankrc, thanks for the comment,By the old version, you mean the one that only works with old browsers? unfortunately i dont think i even have that file anymore, sorry. there wasn't enough difference between the versions that i felt i needed to keep it. If there's something that feels awkward, maybe you can try the downloadable "Lofi" versions at the bottom of the page. Or maybe you can let me know what is it you miss about the old one, because almost everything is exactly the same, just with more bug fixes and slightly different tile graphics!
Hey, is this game still being updated? It was quite a while ago and if you are working 100 % on Rhythm Doctor then I understand, but at least after that game is done could you please work on this game so it is playable again?
hello alexkarate, yeah you are right all my time is being taken by Rhythm Doctor right now. yeah, I do plan to come back to make this game playable again as soon as I can! It's been hard to find time. I'll definitely send a mail to that mailing list to notify the people there about it when its ready though. Thanks for checking in, sorry for how long it's taking!
I really hope you guys update this game again. I love both this and Rhythm Doctor equally. This one has such great music and fun gameplay, I absolutely adore the idea of turning geometry into rhythm. And I cannot get the songs out of my head!
sorry about that :( the game is unplayable right now because of the browsers disabling support for the old web player. And making a web compatible version is complicated because the only codebase I have now is more graphics heavy and isnt suited for browser play, and i didn't have a backup of the old one. It'll probably be a while to get it working again.
