Publisher and developer Berzerk Studios have finally released their rhythm game Just Shapes & Beats for the Nintendo Switch and Steam, featuring a ton of chiptune and EDM artists including those from the VGM community. The game is exactly what is on the label; a fast-paced SHUMP featuring shapes (both you and your enemies) all moving to ridiculously speedy beats as you struggle to stay alive. (fyi, you won’t for very long in most cases)

“Just Shapes & Beats” is a trippy couch-coop musical bullet-hell based on two simple things, there’s going to be Shapes, and some kick-ass beats, and you are going to die a lot. Wait, that’s three things, just go back and edit the first part to “three simple things” in your head.

The game won accolades at PAX East and South 2015 as well as Game Developer’s Conference 2015 for its simple entertainment as a rhythm game. It also features the musical talents of familiar faces in the chiptune and EDM scene, including Danimal Cannon and Zef, Big Giant Circles, Kubbi and more. There’s also teasing of additional tracks being added by more artists in the near future.

The game is currently on Steam for $17.99 and the Nintendo Store for $19.99. Check it out and be sure to tell us what you think!
