A new video was released for the upcoming music-rhythm, role-playing game from Puuba and Kasedo Games called Metronomicon. A new update offers gamers a quick look at some of the side-quests featured in the truly unique title, along with a small minute long sampling of Pertubator’s “She Is Young, She Is Beautiful, She Is Next”.
Puuba’s Metronomicon is a work of pure genius. You have a party of mages, warriors, priests and fighters, battling against the forces of evil… using music. Players will be able to switch between their party members on the fly while attempting to keep in sync with the music. The characters dance and bob to the music while players attempt to hit the corresponding keys to execute commands.
If you need a very quick taste of what the game is like you can check out the teaser trailer below.
Now on to the good stuff.
Developer Danny Garfield explained in a new post on the Steam page what gamers can expect from the side-quest leaderboard system, as well as some of the additional elements to help increase the game’s replayability. This includes being able to tackle missions where you can gather up loot for the party or battle it out in arenas against fearsome foes.
Of course, I could textually explain all of the minutiae from the update as if you would want to read all of that text from the minute’s worth of a developer diary in the video below, or you could just watch a minute’s worth of the developer diary below, which is then followed by a clip of Pertubator putting it down at the end of the clip. Check it out.
That’s a slick song from one of the few masters of the dark-synth sub-genre. I don’t know if that’s one of the better songs on the “Dangerous Days” album because all those songs were righteous on that OST.
And speaking of original soundtracks… Metronomicon will feature original music from artists like Jimmy Urine, along with unreleased music from Shiny Toy Guns, and music from Dj CUTMAN and YACHT.
Players will be able to loot and grind like other RPGs, except they’ll be doing so with the kind of muscled-up tunes to make your ears feel like they just got injected with melodic steroids.
You can look for this very original and completely different rhythm-RPG to launch on Steam sometime late into 2016. In the meantime you can keep an eye on updates and the development progress by hitting up the game’s Steam store page.
