The music-rhythm, endless-runner from DigixArt Entertainment called Lost in Harmony recently received a free update in the form of an all new expansion called M.I.R.A.I’s Escape. It’s a short journey following a robot on the run.
The robot M.I.R.A.I., manages to escape from the lab and make a dash for it, attempting to outrun any and all who would give chase.
Yoan Fanise, the creative director for Lost in Harmony explained how they came up with the idea for the new content and what it would mean for players in the press release, stating…
“The idea of M.I.R.A.I. came during Tokyo Game Show last year, when we met these extraordinary Japanese composers, they wanted to participate to Lost in Harmony adventure. They loved the way we were melting Musical gaming and Storytelling. We started to imagine a futuristic story around a musical creature, that ended to be our beloved M.I.R.A.I.”
“We wanted to create an experience that is more challenging and diverse for the players, that fits both the Asian culture of rhythm games and the need for emotions and storytelling of the Western audience.”
Robots and music-rhythm… why not?
You can see what the new expansion looks like running in Lost in Harmony with the launch trailer below.
The expansion is no walk in the park. They’ve increased the challenge of the game as well as added in 12 all new chapters to play through as M.I.R.A.I.
The game maintains the diverse and eclectic soundtrack that helped highlight the cornerstone of the first game, and gamers can get their hands on the expansion right now from the Google Play store or the iTunes App Store.
It’s obviously facing some stiff competition in the form of Super Mario Run, which also released today for Apple’s mobile devices. Most analysts are expecting Super Mario Run to move big numbers, but it’s also a paid app so that might hinder its potential success.
