Now LIVE: Non-Latin character support, "Play NEXT" & "RANDOM" (Build 1451)

Hello everyone!

Following a break-in period in beta, we are putting Build 1451 on the live branch, since there have been no reported issues with this new build.

As mentioned in the previous announcement, this build contains non-Latin character support as well as new "play next" and "play random" functionality.

Definitely let us know if you still find unsupported characters (they will show up as squares), or any other issues!

Cheers,

Francois

Big update: Non-Latin character support, "Play NEXT" & "RANDOM", now in PC beta! (Build 1450)

Hello everyone!

We're really excited to announce that a large update that's been a long time coming and has now hit beta. In addition to bug fixes, we finally finished re-factoring our font engine to handle multiple non-Latin character sets simultaneously.

It's a rather large backend upgrade, so definitely try it out, throw as many foreign character song and artist tags at it as you please, and let us know how it works out! We expect we might have missed some character sets so we're looking forward to hearing from you about how the system performs in a live environment.

Also, two oft-requested features for playback have been added: "Play next song" (in the current playlist), as well as "Play random song".

We hope this all makes for an improved Symphony experience for everyone. As always, ping us in the discussion boards with any issues on these or other features!

TO TRY THE BETA: just select the beta branch [beta_loggin_f] from the "betas" in your Steam client under the Symphony properties.

Cheers,

Francois

About This Game

Your music is under attack, you must liberate it!

A mysterious entity is absorbing and corrupting your music before your very eyes. You must battle through your own song collection, discover items, customize your ship and fight boss enemies to liberate the Symphony of Souls and reclaim your music!

Symphony is one of the most music-driven games ever made. In this vertical shooter, re-experience each of your songs as it becomes a unique battlefield driven by intensity and tempo.

Your music collection is now an item collection! Each of your songs contains an item you can discover, equip and upgrade. Fully customize your ship to reach score targets, upgrade items and unlock new difficulty levels.

Showcase your skill. Symphony's innovative per-song leaderboard rewards you more, when you dominate with less powerful weapons. Find the loadout that suits your style and show what you can do!

its not very fun. felt more like i was playing some random shooter game while having a youtube tab open from a song i like playing rather than it actually incorporating with the gameplay and all. not very fun.

Cool shoot em up that goes along to your own music library. i prefered Beat Hazard, but this game was still pretty cool.

Edit: I have this game on my phone also, ive played it a ton more on the phone than on steam.

Nice game for the first hour, then you will notice that it's always the same and the levels are very similar to each other. You could disable the music and put a random track in the background and feel no difference.
After the Mezzo-piano difficulty, Mezzo-forte and so on are completely impossible to beat 100% for the 95% of the songs: plenty of enemies, small arena and a big collision box due to the large ship.
Not mentioning the "cannon balls" fired by the enemies ships that can't be seen when the arena became red (on black background) since they're red or black.
The story is useless for this type of game and unattractive, the Bosses are easy and only of 5 types. There should be a way to "deactivate" the story mode if I do not want to be interrupted when I'm playing since it doesn't allow you to record a score on the leaderboard because of the extra points you get for the Boss.

You are playing as ship in some universe and your enemies are some other ships that want to destroy you. YOUR music is playing in the background while you are destroying them. There is pretty good number of bosses so it won´t get stereotype. You can upgrade your ship with items so thats a HUGE +.Its not for a bad price for a game like this,but i recommend getting it in sale. Worth any cent.

CONS
+music
+grafic
+controller support
+upgrading your ship
+never-ending story
and many more...

PROS
-didn´t find any
