A night at the club is always memorable with the loud music, the flashing neon lights, and tons of fun to be had. Well Double Fine and Dracogen decided to put all of that into its newest game, Dropchord. Dropchord is a new rhythm based music game where the goal is to get as many points as possible. What makes this game unique is that it is designed with the new Leap Motion Controller for Windows and Mac. This controller is a motion detection controller that lets you interact with the computer screen by just using your hands. Dropchord is controlled by just using 2 fingers to move orbs around the screen to collect points. Not only does this make for some intense rhythm based action, it also makes it feel really natural with just using your fingers to control the game. Dropchord really brings the club feeling with the focus being on the music and the visual effects of the game.
Music being a very big part of the game Double Fine managed to get some big names to work on the songs for Dropchord. Some of which include Austin Wintory who worked on Journey and Kinect party, Sam Hulick who worked on Mass Effect, and Brian Trifon who worked on Assassin’s Creed 2. If you are just loving the music and can’t get enough, you can even get the soundtrack for the game. The sound track is now available through iTunes, Amazon, and Google Play.
The game was just released today, 7/22/13, for the Windows and Mac though the Leap Motion Airspace Store. It will be released on 7/31/13 for the OUYA console, and 8/1/13 for the iOS and Android mobile devices. It will be available for $2.99 for all versions of the game.
