Developer THREAKS have been working on their 2D rhythm-focused platformer Beatbuddy for a while now and revealed some new information today. First, the game is getting a longer name, now called Beatbuddy: Tale of the Guardians. Alongside the wordier title, they also shared the release date.
Those curious should mark August 6th down on their calendars because that's when Beatbuddy comes to PC. Windows, Mac, and Linux users will all get their shot at the experience which has previously won awards for best art and sound.
If that isn't enough for you, then perhaps naming a few of the key people involved in the project will work better. The game scriptwriter best known for her work on Mirror's Edge and Tomb Raider (2012), Rhianna Pratchett, has contributed to Beatbuddy's story. Another big name is Austin Wintory of Journey fame who has lent his talent the game as well.
Hopefully that has stoked your interest a bit more! Beatbuddy: Tale of the Guardians will be available on Steam for $15. So far, it has not been announced for consoles but maybe they will come next.
