MusicWave is one of my first projects. It's a rhythm game centralized around EDM with a high skill ceiling and beautiful visuals.
The project was greenlit over four years ago, just a few months before Steam removed the greenlight feature. I decided to take a step back from the project because my programming skills weren't quite ready for the scope I imagined. However, I am much more experienced now and ready to tackle the original plan for MusicWave.
I like to call MusicWave the Guitar Hero of EDM. The vision first came to me while tapping my favorite Monstercat songs on my lap in a long car ride. When I got home, I began creating the project.
The mechanics combine Guitar Hero's score multiplier and starpower meter with accuracy measurements from other rhthym games. The result rewards players for not only maintaining streak, but hitting notes down to the hundreth of a second. The goal is to create a large skill ceiling so players can always improve.
I want MusicWave to have a strong community which is why the game fully supports custom tracks. Players can create, share, and play other's songs. Is your favorite EDM song not in the game? Just create a song chart for it and upload it for the world to play!
