BEAT BOY in Development
Description
You cannot choose your dreams, but you can control them!

Summary

BEAT BOY is an autorunner platformer where player’s actions are related to different musical mechanics. It is a cutting edge rhythm-adventure game developed with a proprietary beat matching technology where music is perfectly synchronized with action. It is similar to Bit.Trip Runner, but the players really play with the music rhythm. BEAT BOY combines a player’s audio and visual senses together in a journey through a teenager’s dream/nightmare world. Players can compose and mix music through the platformer mechanics and they can create their levels too!

Developers around the world have created great music games and adventure platformers. They have even created amazing games like Bit.Trip Runner and Audiosurf which are somehow a middle point between music and other genres. But none of them have created one game that really blends the music mechanics with action. On the one hand, the games like Bit.Trip Runner or Geometry Dash are related to the music tempo, but the players don't really play to the rhythm of music. If they tried to play to the beat, they would fail. On the other hand, in games like Guitar Hero, players do play to the rhythm of music, but the game doesn't provide an experience further than following the dots over the lines and matching the beats. BEAT BOY is the one game that perfectly merges the music mechanics with platformer action!

BEAT BOY is a perfect blend of rhythm and adventure. It takes the fun and addictiveness of the music games and puts them into the intriguing world of a platformer adventure game. It is like a very fast paced platformer where the players must perform multiple actions very fast and the music beats are the keys to perform them well. Music empowers players to become faster than they ever thought possible!

He doesn’t know if he is cursed or if he needs to solve a mystery to survive all the evil forces that are working against him.

Fortunately, he is not alone in his nightmares. He falls in love with an enigmatic girl who provides clues to reveal tools, weapons and armor that enhance his abilities to new levels he never thought possible. With these new abilities he will infiltrate and connect to his nightmares with a special sense of time and space: music. He discovers music is the key to conquer his fears, enemies and will enable his survival. While the battles take place in his deepest dreams he also discovers it affects the real world when he is awake. He longs to meet the girl of his dreams in reality.
