The fusion of rhythm games and every other video game genre is still being explored, from Mother 3’s rhythm-based turn-based battles to No Straight Roads’ character action gameplay that incorporates musical elements.
Among the first examples of genre fusion was a tweet sent out by game developer Dan Da Rocha, which quickly went viral among the rhythm game community. After being renamed Gun Jam and receiving a fresh new look, this music-driven first-person shooter has gained a lot of popularity.
Jaw Drop Games and publisher Raw Fury have announced their partnership in the development and release of this new rhythm shooter. The game’s electrifying soundtrack, which includes three distinct genres: EDM (Electronic Dance Music), Trap, and Metal, has already been made available to fans.
A city where the omnipresent ‘Beat’ means everything and music is used as a means of control is the setting for Gun Jam, which takes place in the year 2000. While the rest of the city moves to the beat of The Speaker’s music, players must rebel and break free from the hypnotic spell that has been cast over them.
It is the game’s multi-genre soundtrack that will propel players through a variety of environments in the bustling city of ‘Mubel.” In order to survive the musical dystopia, you must carefully time your gunshots to the beat of the music while fending off hordes of tranced-out troopers and other enemies.
All of the game’s firefights are synced to the game’s soundtrack, and players must become acclimated to the various music styles, environments, and enemies as they progress through the campaign.
In the original tweet that demonstrated the concept of Gun Jam, placeholder assets were used; however, the upcoming full release will feature an immersive art style with vibrant environments that react to the music.
For those who want to annihilate enemies while blasting to the beat in a new adrenaline-charged rhythm FPS, Gun Jam is available on Steam.
