Demo now available:

Hey everyone. Im here today to present a new rhythm/shoot 'em up(shmup) game called "Rhythm Destruction." Its been in the works for 4 years now between a friend and I and we're finally ready to release in October Smiley

The game plays like a traditional shmup, where you control your ship as you traverse through a stage, dodging enemy movement paths, bullets, and environmental hazards. The twist however, is that enemies and objects are destroyed with timed key presses to the beat of the music.

We will be releasing the game in October for $5. We havent nailed down the distribution service yet but we'll most likely start on Desura(we're trying to get on steam).

Launch trailer & extended gameplay trailer here:

Rhythm Destruction - Gameplay Footage

We recently had a 16-man tournament showcase @ Project Storm, a rhythm/fighting game tournament held every year in Orlando, FL. We got a ton of great feedback and all the rhythm guys really liked it.

Our music, as you may recognize is produced by Kyle Ward, and we hope to expand on our library of songs in the future.

We've also launched a Kickstarter campaign, and are in the process of trying to get onto steam via Greenlight. If you're interested in backing in either avenue we'd really appreciate it.

If you have any questions feel free to ask.

Thanks for your time!

Ty Smiley We're aiming to get a 2-stage demo out within the next 2 weeks.

The 2-stage demo is now available!

The playable stages are Dynamo(tier 1) & Esperanza(tier 2). Both of them are fairly basic in the rhythm department. Esperanza ramps up the shmup difficulty a little bit though. An interactive tutorial is also available when first launching the game, which is highly recommended!

Please note that Norton will detect the installer exe as "dangerous" and delete it when you try to run it(so you may have to turn it off while installing).

If you have any feedback, comments or problems with the demo, please let me know! Enjoy Smiley

1.01 change log:
-Added new graphic options for low,medium,high and max settings(defaulted to high)
-Added options to enable v-sync(enabled by default)
-Many optimizations to work on lower end computers
-Upon dying, the screen is now cleared of all bullets & upcoming notes
-Reworked many sections in both Dynamo and Esperanza to offer a more fair and enjoyable experience
-Increased the duration of the grade check marks after destroying an enemy
-Tutorial now points out the grade check mark

Not sure if you've tried it yet but we just updated the build today to improve performance, along with some changes being made to both stages
