What the developers have to say:

“The game takes audio and smashes it against math to create these gorgeous levels. When folks tell us it's great, we know we're working in the right direction. When they say it's awful, we like to ask why. We didn't used to, but the best thing we do nowadays is to run every coolest little thing we do by you. How about this new city? This mutator? That new stunt? A new connection between music and level design? That's the "why" behind Early Access for us.”

About This Game

Battle your favorite drum 'n' bass track, or relax as you fly through that trance album. "Ugly Baby" takes your MP3 music library and creates floating cities for you to explore.

Buzz those girders, groove along that building, and finish with a twist for extra points, all the while listening to your own soundtrack. Ugly Baby is currently available as a playable pre-release on Steam.

The fact that you are still seeing this game on steam is a result of three groups of people negating their responsibility.

1. The developers of course, for abandoning the game and quite literally walking off with gamers money.

2. Valve, for not removing abaondoned early access games from Steam and offering refunds to those burnt gamers.

3. Us - the gamers - for allowing Dejobaan Games LLC to continue as a company despite the first two points.

Oh and Dejobaan? Finish a game before starting on another one. Also give me (and the rest of the gamers that put faith in you in this title) my money back.

Early Access Review
I want to like this game. I loved the other games Dejobaan have made in the past, and I was curious to see what they would do with Ugly Baby, so I was eager to pick it up. I didn't mind it being in early access since I had faith in their abilities to create a game (especially after Aaaaaaah), and it was one of the reasons that the Potato Sack from 2011 worked so well. There was a lot of good potential there.

It's been a few years now, and there's still nothing here but an incomplete game. In fact, it's worse; last year, I was at least able to load the game and run the few test levels (and, admittedly, had fun with them). Now the game has trouble booting up, and when I do manage to get it working, absolutely nothing works.

I'm very disappointed by this, and despite my enjoyment of their other titles, their quality is definitely taking a hit in my eyes. The lack of public accountability (or even timely updates) is especially frustrating.

In other words, unless you see an update with something along the lines of "the game is finished!", I would sadly say to stay away from this title.

Early Access Review
What can I say about this game. It is the first early access game on steam. A game that has been in a state of early access for 4 years and 8 months(April 1st, 2011) and no sign of ever going gold. In fact, it has been so long since it's last update that it has almost been as long since it was updated as the offical launch of early access games on steam. If Valve had taken a look at how early access worked for this game I doubt they would have ever allowed any early access games on steam. Why any game that has not been updated in over two years without being formally released is allowed to stay avalible to customers to purchase is beyond me.

Truthfully, it's not a horrible game but it is far from great. Most of my hours came from stress testing a video card. This game would cause crashes more often then any other I owned at the time. The rest came from the 2011 potato thingy for portal 2 launch. If your a fan of games that use your own music to generate levels I would recommend a bunch of others others over this one. Even Dejobann's other game AAAAaaaAAaaAAaaaaAAAA!!!!! does the concept much better and is more polished than this rendition. I just can't recommend this game to other people.

Early Access Review
This is an unfinished piece of software with a horrible name that tries way to hard to make you interested. The gameplay is poorly explained, which leads to an experience that barely functions as a game, let alone a music player. Go buy audiosurf if you want a procedurally generated music player that allows you to interact with it. This was the worst free gift I have ever personally recieved, why steam still has this as a purchaseable item in their store is beyond me.
