Empty Clip Studios, Inc., the creators of the music-puzzle game Groovin’ Blocks announced today that the music-based shooter SYMPHONY will be available for PC on August 6, 2012, with pre-orders beginning today through participating digital download partners. This game reminds me a lot of “Child of Eden” with how it can sync with your own music to create worlds.
SYMPHONY is one of the most intense music-based games to date. In this vertical-shooter, players select music from their own collections and each song creating a unique battlefield. Making their way through their own custom-created playlists, players customize their ship, discover and upgrade items to defeat bosses, and ultimately, liberate the “Symphony of Souls” from a mysterious entity and reclaim their music.
SYMPHONY won two awards at the 2012 Indie Game Challenge, “Technical Achievement” and the “GameStop PC Digital Download Award”.
Here are some special features for the game:
• Re-experience Your Music! – SYMPHONY’s advanced music analysis adapts to any genre, with the content of every song creating both a unique level and item to discover, equip and upgrade.
• Liberate Your Music! – The “Symphony of Souls” has been trapped by an unknown entity that is corrupting and absorbing your songs and you must defeat five sets of enemy bosses to reach it and reclaim your music.
• Replayability – The music-driven battlefield offers a long-lasting, gameplay experience, including six difficulty levels, earning “Kudos” and “Inspiration” points unlock upgradable items.
• Per-Song Leaderboard System – Showcase your skills with SYMPHONY’s per-song leaderboard system with 30 achievements/medals to unlock.
Here is a trailer for the game:
SYMPHONY launches August 6, 2012 for $9.99 (USD) on the PC. Pre-orders begin today, information including worldwide pricing at current participating digital download partners and can be found at:
