It's been a while since I posted anything here on Newgrounds, and I'm willing to bet my lifetime savings of $3.72 that none of you people either noticed or cared. Nonetheless, I just couldn't help myself from posting this vision of mine to the world, starting here (don't you feel so special right now ^_^)! So let's get to it, this is another installment in my completely made-up series: [Insert Subject Title Here]
I feel that rhythm games are on the decline as of late, with only Dance Central keeping up with the mainstream crowd while Rock Band is starting to lose it's mosh pit of fans. I believe there is a good reason for this to be so, mainly because the actions required in such games can be easily projected into real-time, there really isn't much of a use to use an electronic simulator when it could just be replaced with an mp3 player and some lessons. However I feel that this genre doesn't deserve to go extinct just yet, not while Dance Dance Evolution can make people move like this. And thus is my attempt at one for hopefully some game developer to make a reality someday. Abstract: Basically a music game crossover.
Believe it or not, there is a story to this little project, and not just flapping about each song; a two/three-sided story to be exact. The first one involves a dance crew in the US. They feel that the dance and music scene is getting to crowded up with mediocrity, thus they start a movement to become the top crew and bring awareness to this dire situation. Admittedly, compared to the other sides to this storyline, this one is pretty broad and not very fleshed-out. But this is basically the Dance Central/DDR of the game as the gameplay will involve motion control for consoles and using the mouse and arrows keys in a DDR fashion for mobile devices.
The 2nd part stars the rising sensation, Hatsune Miku. This CPU-oriented singer feels that music is good no matter who it comes from, even a machine. So she (along with the other main vocaloids) go out in tour to prove to the world that a virtual diva can revolutionize music. This is clearly appealing to the J-Pop, K-Pop fans out there as this will be the Project Diva of the game. Gameplay will consist of karaoke tracks for consoles, and a fast-paced typing/texting challenge for mobile devices. I feel the mobile devices will be more 'useful' to the mainstream as it will also serve as keyboard typing practice.
The 3rd part and main plot of the story is what I believe makes it interesting. The reason this game is being called Future of Rhythm is the subject itself is being threatened by an invading force simply called "The Dubstep" consuming all musical art in its wake. It will be up to the two main protagonists to use their different music styles to ward off this force and save the art from assimilation. But is this mysterious new being truly evil, or just misunderstood?
And that's that. Simple enough game to design for those who know what they're doing. The tracks will involve the standard hip-hop, dance, pop songs as well as songs from the vocaloid cast and other J-pop tracks mainly for the singing segments. There might even be some crossover songs featuring a certain mix of hip-hop/pop+Jpop songs such as this (I like to call these the 'Japerica' playlist...well excuse me for the lame name). The Future of Rhythm will be up to you!
