Years ago on the Zune HD we had a popular game called AudioSurf. It was at the time one of the first mobile music/rhythm games that allowed you to interact with your Zune’s music in no other way. Fast forward to 2013 and while we don’t have that game, we may have something even better coming: SongArc.
SongArc is a forthcoming, brand new title from two well-known developers: Turtle Games, who make the popular game Rum Run and András Velvárt, who is the mind behind SurfCube 3D Browser. It’s yet another genius creation from the AppCampus Project (a joint venture between Microsoft, Aalto University and Nokia) and it should be coming out in the next month.
From the description of the game (and revealed in the above teaser video):
“SongArc is a music / rhythm game for Windows Phone, with a revolutionary gameplay that lets you get intimately close to the music and feel as if you were playing a real instrument. It allows you to play with any songs you have on your phone. If one of these songs doesn’t have a Sheet for it yet, you can create your own, and even share it with others to play with."
We’re really quite excited about the potential of this game, as Windows Phone needs a hit title that allows you to access your music library and engage in rapid thumb pressing akin to the standard Dance Dance Revolution.
