Developer SongArc Kft. announced that SongArc is finally coming to Android and iOS after topping the charts on Windows Phone with more than 1.6 million downloads. The game will launch on both Google and Apple platforms on March 11th during South by Southwest (SXSW) in Austin.
In SongArc, instead of having four different buttons to press, players can tap shapes that reach an arc and follow the beat — allowing players to experience music in a brand new way. It’s also possible to create a number of custom “choreographies” for each song — referred to in-game as a “Sheet” that allows players to decide what part of the song they want to emphasize. For example, the creator of the sheet can choose whether it’s the guitar, vocals or that talented drummer that really should take center stage. More than 130,000 Sheets have been created so far — adding the artistic interpretation of individual SongArc players to tens of thousands of songs.
Furthermore, players can load their entire music libraries for instant gratification (no music packs needed) — and because SongArc supports any music track, players can enjoy any genre imaginable. Corporate rock, movie themes, jazz . . . or even nerdcore: Anything goes!
Players who don’t have any music on their phones will find a wide range of licensed music to play, thanks to the “Featured Artist” pilot program. Featured Artists are up-and-coming bands from a wide range of genres from all over the world who get worldwide exposure and increased revenue with the help of the game. SongArc Advisory Board members and two of the many musicians whose songs are featured include RapScallions (known for their hit songs “California Brain” and “Can You Feel It”) and Wendy Starland (who discovered Lady Gaga and is an amazing singer-songwriter in her own right — named VH1’s “Best Emerging Artist” and honored by the Songwriters Hall of Fame).
