Unbeatable is a two button rhythm game and an exploration game that has fulfilled its purpose Kickstarter Gate on Wednesday – 30 days to raise more money. It’s easy to see why the campaign has so much support. Unbeatable, of Developer D-Celllooks amazing.
As Beat, a pink-haired singer, players step into the half-rhythm and semi-adventure game to create a setlist for an upcoming show. You see, music is illegal in this world – and Beat will fix that. This requires the arcade style rhythmic gameplay powered by the two buttons and interspersed with exploration sections where Beat hangs out with the band and plays mini-games.
If I had to Unbeatable something I would call it Scott Pilgrim versus the World: The Game meets Promar. D-Cell Games said Unbeatable “The goal is to look like a long, long bootleg VHS take of the newest anime on the block from the ’90s,” says the Kickstarter site. And that sounds about right.
Unbeatable will also have an original soundtrack that already sounds amazing. “The music is written to accompany key narrative beats and game story themes, and there will also be a variety of B-SIDES (by RJ Lake) and story-exclusive tracks that will be included in the final release,” wrote D- Cell.
For people who are not interested in rhythm games, Unbeatable will have an “assist mode,” said D-Cell, along with other accessibility options – for players who just want to “swing in time” without being frustrated by the beat (or want / need to adjust the settings to make the game more comfortable). “
Unbeatable [white label], an “episodic side story demo,” will be available for free on Steam Wednesday and includes six songs.
