Melody escapes out of Early Access!

Melody's Escape has left Early Access and has now officially launched!

I would like to personally thank the community for all the amazing support and feedback received during this Early Access phase!

This 1.0 update adds 6 amazing music tracks from Shirobon. (including the song from the game's trailer, "Regain Control"). Each track's obstacle course was meticulously manually mapped for perfect synchronization with the game.

Update v1.0: now with music!

Major Changes

  • Added 6 amazing music tracks from Shirobon! (including the song from the game's trailer, "Regain Control"). Each track's obstacle course was meticulously manually mapped for perfect synchronization with the game. You can find those songs in the "Bundled Music" menu in the Music Selection screen.
  • The main menu now has music
Minor Changes
  • Reduced the terrain's "waviness" height ranges in Flying intensity, as it was too high in some cases.
  • The game now still runs at full speed when its window has lost focus.
  • "Double Low Tempos" adjustment mode (used in Intense difficulty and Custom) now only works on <=88BPM tracks instead of <=91BPM.
  • Fixed a bug preventing a track to load from cache when it only had "Walking" intensity for its entire duration, or no obstacles at all.
  • Updated track cache format. This will invalidate previously cached tracks and force a new analysis of each song when played.
  • The font size for the "toggle favorite" and "play all" text elements is now bigger.
  • Fixed not being able to exit the "Credits" menu using the Esc key or Back button.
  • Added an "Audio" option to disable the main menu's music.
  • Disabled the F1 to F5 "debug" keys, as it was conflicting with some players' "Screenshots" key. You can enable them again by using the "-debug_function_keys" command line parameter.
  • Updated the FNA framework on Linux and OSX

Someone recommended me to get this game, and, well, I got this game, just for getting some excuse to listen to some music. The gameplay is pretty forgiving, so... Even though I'm pretty suck at such type of game, I'm still enjoying it. It seems that medium difficulty suits me the best...

As for the gameplay, it usually analyzes the music good enough, but the long note detection and segment detection is not that accurate. Segment detection sometimes didn't yield the correct result, but it usually works good. Long note detection however, false positive a lot. Apart from that, it does match the emotion of the music pretty well.

One part I don't like is that, the motion blur is pretty strong, so... Not good for eyes I think.

And, the modding support isn't that good. There's no custom animation cycle support at all, static puppy only. This isn't a big issue, but it just kills the possibility of things like flapping wing or waving long dresses. And no different spirtes for different movements.

So, my suggestion:

1. involving a manual beat map editor so that we can correct the mistakes of auto detection. Since the generated beat map is cached anyway, I don't see why this shouldn't be a thing.

2. better support for skin creating. At least allowing us to use animation cycle as a spirte, and use different sprite for different movements.

被某基友安利了这个游戏,于是就+1了。。。嘛,只是为了找个借口听歌而已233这游戏算是比较比较宽松的(失误惩罚不高),因此,虽然我是个音游渣,我还是玩得挺爽。感觉我玩medium难度最舒服。

游戏性方面,通常游戏对音乐的分析是足够好的,不过长音符检测和段落检测略有蛋疼。。。段落检测偶尔会跪,不过通常都挺准确的。长音符检测则各种假阳性(不是长音符的被检测成长音符的时候很多)。除此之外,这游戏和音乐的情感的契合度还是蛮高的。

有一点我不太喜欢的是,画面残影得有点厉害= =因此,对眼睛略坑233

然后,这游戏对模组的支持比较一般,不支持自定义动作循环,而且只支持静态模型。这倒不是个大问题,不过确实限制了不少可能性,例如,不能扇动翅膀,裙摆也没法飞舞了。然后,也不能对不同的动作加载不同的图形。

(个人对游戏开发者的建议就不译了233)

DO I recommend this game?

Hell yeah I DO recommend this game!

A visually neon awesome rhythm game which you can use your local music? What more can I ask for?

Oh, the visual style is soooo pumped up, running, jumping, sliding...wait you can fly, too?

Did I mention if the beat in your music change drasticly, there's slow-mo?

SLOW-MO!! SO DAMN COOL!!

The only down side is most consistent music like ACDC metal and most game music the pattern will be a marathon course.

Eh, who gave a ♥♥♥♥ when the game is so AWESOME! I can settle with other music styles. The-smashing-pumpkins works fine.

If you like rhythm game, buy this. Chances are you gonna love it.

I always liked the rhythm games while still being mediocre at them, and that's why I played a LOT of Project Diva on my PSP in the past (and never beated Hatsune Miku no Gekishou on Extreme), so when I was randomly scrolling the sales and found this game it immediately caught my attention, and I have no regrets buying it.

Gameplay wise, it's great. It's challenging, never straight up ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥t (no seriously, go watch some osu or Project Diva on Extreme) and enjoyable. My PC can't handle the high quality, but even at minimum is still beautiful to watch.
The music analyzer is good, really. Even when it can't find a good 4/4 tempo it can still make some good beats out of it. Obliviously it's not perfect, it can't replicate the huge tempo swings on other rhythm games and some music will inevitably be more accurate or well tuned than others, but on overall it makes the best out of any kind of music. I tried with videogames BGM, Vocaloid, and Japanese/Korean vocal music (Anime OST as well).
The only minor lackluster part for me is the stock music selection. There are a couple of tracks finely mapped to be the best gameplay experience, but they are... not enough. The main idea of the game is using your own music, but some more manually mapped tracks are kinda necessary.

Even if you are not a huge fan of the rhythm game genre it's worth a shot, it's a promising game that I'm sure it will get even better with time and good feedback.

At first I was unsure if I should buy this game or not. It was on sale so i thought it wouldnt hurt and it turnes out that I made an amazing decision. This game is amazing it lets you play the game to your own music and is overall great for the price. To some this game might get boring fast because it is a "Time Waster" but overall it is good. I would 100% reccomend this game and hope that you have fun playing it.

Songs I mainly used
Stressed Out - Tomsize remix
Menody - TheFatRat (I think thats the name)
Straight Up - Avenza
Six Shooter - Cyote Kisses

Over all I give this game a 8/10

It's been a while since I've played a casual game like this that is just fun; no story or convoluted controls to get wrapped up in and I can listen to my favorite music. This is a great game to unwind to, and it actually does pretty well with syncing up to my music library (which has pretty much every genre except kids' and acid metal). A few of my favorite songs actually match up perfectly. It took me a while to get the timing down, as the different speeds can sometimes switch suddenly, but that's a personal problem and actually made me like the game more-- I felt a huge sense of accomplishment once I learned that skill.

My only problem is sometimes I'll wonder where it's getting the beats, and then I listen closer and realize it's getting it from a backing track that might be hard to hear. Most of the time I notice the backbeats of songs so it's really not much of a problem.

Imagine Bit.Trip Runner, but with the ability to put in your own music, and a lot of fun community mods to keep things entertaining. You've got this game. Want to run to "Beat It" as Octodad? Go ahead! How about some U2 or Ke$sha as Undyne? You can do that too!

Keep this in mind: You need to make sure your music is the right format. My version will play mp3, but not m4a.

Melody's Escape solves a problem I've felt that alot of rythm games have: that low tempo songs are usually boring. With no shortage of buttons to push and lovely visuals even slower songs are fun to play. It also has a neat feature where it tells you how well it has detected tempo and timings in each song, so you can tell if your favourite song is going to have button presses on-beat (or not). I've found some songs to not sync especially well (especially rock/metal songs) and anything progressive with no consistent rythm or pattern is probably not going to give you a very fun course. YMMV.

I'm a big fan of rythm games and used to play Stepmania 3.9 endlessly as a teen, but sadly my wrists and reflexes aren't what they used to be. Melody's Escape gives me all the fun of pushing buttons in time with music with a customisable difficulty. If you're like me and want heaps of buttons to hit but can't get the timing right, you can customise the difficulty to be more lenient with timings without sacrificing quantity of inputs, and so on.

Add to that steam workshop support where you can create and share outfits/hairstyles for Melody (and even make your own obstacle courses for songs if you're patient), this is one of the better rythm games out there.

Plus Melody has a tiny schoolgirl uniform, that's always a plus in my book.

I Ran So Far Away...

Melody's Escape is a rhythm game with the skin of a platformer stretched over it. Like many other games in the genre (With maybe the expection of oddities like Crypt Of The NecroDancer or Gitaroo Man.), it doesn't matter who you are, or what is going on, your new goal in life is to tap those damn buttons to the icons on screen and either love it or feel like a ponce for being rhythmically challenged (Which, I'll admit, I am these days.). Thankfully, the developers realize this and included Steam Workshop support and wide library support (which is a godsend) so you can see a minimalist Madoka (or some various anime character of your choosing) do a face-plant while The Knife shriek about nerve itches in the background.

It's been years since I last touched anything remotely related to the genre, but Melody's Escape difficulties are descriptive but very far apart, with relaxing acting as a test to see if you're still breathing on one end and Overload reminding me of fitter, happier, Pump It Up days trying out nightmare. The two inbetween difficulties are probably going to be what most people settle on since they provide a healhier challenge. If that doesn't satisfy you, you can craft a difficulty based of those presets into something where you're manically smashing one button for a minute on end or doing singular complex inputs every few seconds.

Since the main draw of the game come from the massive library and format support, it's only fair to mention that while the synch program is often great and hits the notes of the song, it's often a question exactly which ones that can mess you up. Some songs that I tried out like King Kunta (Kendrick Lamar), Burn the Witch (Radiohead) and various electronic/Hip-Hop/things with a pronounced beat things, were relatively flawless and easy to decipher, something more nuanced or jittery, like Ice Cream (Battles), or Sleep (Godspeed You! Black Emperor, which I really don't recommend trying out unless it's for some crazy marathon.) often had beats placed on different elements, where I'm doing more button presses during the calm intro than at the typical post-rock cresendo. To the game's credit, it tells you how well it thinks it gets the gist of the song, but I kinda wished that it did a little more.

While it seems like I've been ripping this game a new one out of some jealous jilted bitterness of days gone by, it's actually kinda fun to play once you understand the nuances of the game's algorithms and got your groove down, at least in short segments. While I personally think that some leaderboard support would be sweet, I'm content with what it has now and will enjoy future sessions of watching Kurisu Makise plummet to her temporary doom while Burzum is playing in the background.

Worth a full-price purchase if you're a fan of the genre, possibly worth it on sale if on the fence.

The game is fun and i've owned since it was in early access and the only negative thing about it is that it only can detect 4/4 time signature. I was playing "One" by Metallica, which is in 3/4 for majority of the song and during the 3/4 parts it was out of sync with the drums but as soon as it was at the part of the song where it was 4/4 it would sync up perfectly. I'd also recommend playing on a lower resolution so you dont get eye strain. So yea, other than that the game works fine and you should get it sooka.
















Oh and the people giving negative reviews saying it doesnt sync up probably have no musical knowledge and have no idea what time signature is... Just saying.

This game is the very definition of the feeling of wanting to run away from reality by listening to your favorite music.
You literally run away while listening to music and jumping, ducking and flying through, over and under obstacles in intense rythm challenges. The graphics mesmerize the mind with it's colors and speed in the medium and harder difficulties.
This game is also a great stress releaser in the relaxation mode when mashing one and the same button for a while before switching to another.
I am not the greatest in rythm games but this one totally takes the cake for all that i've played and I could continue my pro's but then I have to make a much bigger list, let's not do that. ;)
10/10 from me, very good game!

I really love the idea behind Melody's Escape. I can tell there was a lot of work into trying to get a working level generator like audio surf, but in a more interactive and vibrant way. The game is a step in the right direction, but it really just doesn't work yet.

Before I go on I'd like to mention that, yes, I had VSYNC disabled and I'd recommend anyone else playing the game to disable it, as VSYNC will butcher any chances of proper on-beat gameplay.

Unfortunately, most of the songs that I personally tried to play just didn't sync up in an enjoyable way. A few of the songs I tried were:

Shirobon - Regain Control (this song actually worked exactly how I thought the game should function, but was the only song to really do so, for me anyway)
Mystery Skulls - Magic Animatic
Rage Awakened - Kingdom Hearts 2.5 OST
Hataraku Maou-sama! - The Devil is a Part Timer OST
Dog of Wisdom Remix (Blue Version) - The Living Tombstone

The main issue with the songs is that half the time, there was on-beat gameplay and it felt great, and the other half I couldn't tell what the program was trying to get me to tap to. The synchronization software seems to work better with songs that have slower, defined beats. That way, the game can recognize shifts in the song and adjust the visuals accordingly. However, even in those slow songs, sometimes I couldn't discern if the beats for me to tap were going along with the song's actual beat, or the vocals. So, in my experience, slower songs sort of work, and fast songs just don't work.

The level builder in Melody's Escape does very good at attempting this synchronization, however, and is probably the best I've seen so far, so I have to give it that. But, the reason I just can't recommend it is because it just doesn't work as well as one would expect it to.

The gameplay itself is entertaining at first but quickly becomes more tedious than relaxing, primarily due to the fact that, as I said, most songs aren't actually properly to the beat. I understand that the gameplay is more of an aid for a visual experience than an actual fleshed out game itself, but in that respect I still can't say it's very good feeling to me. If the goal is for visuals to shift in tune with the music, then I don't believe that's been achieved. This is very, very close, but it's not there yet.

Overall, I don't hate Melody's Escape. In fact, I really like it a lot. But, it just doesn't play the way that I'd hoped. Maybe in the future the game will perform better with personal music, but until then I'd wait on purchasing it.

2 years ago, when this was in early-access, I never thought I would come back to this game.

Here I am now, it's a full game, and Jesus Christ it's fun.

Originally, this game was rather tough on my old potato of a laptop. I would constantly mess up due to delays and frame-rates, and it really broke the fun for me.
Now, with a new, proper gaming laptop, and surely game updates itself, the delay has vanished.

Over the time I haven't played, things have changed quite a lot. The flying scenes are completely different, and there seems to be a new, completely awesome, feature where the game slows down, brings out cinematic black bars, showing Melody fall towards the ground before having her roll forwards back onto the beat. All while synced to your music.

That brings me to my next point.
The fact the game can generate a level out of any song you put into it is amazing. Although not all, the game can take whatever song you put in, and give you back a colourful, sometimes challenging level that matches the beats, drops, vocals and slides in the song.

Seeing this game now as a full, proper Steam release that didn't end up as a trainwreck discontinue during E.A is relieving for me, despite the fact I never thought I would pick it back up.

If you like music games, especially ones that allow your music, this game is a great new way to experience your favourite songs, or just waste time in a music-filled heaven.

TL;DR The game is fun, but pay attention when it says it found/couldn't find a beat when you know it shouldn't/should. As compared to other user-supplied music games, this one is the most like DDR/Guitar Hero, so proper beat location is important.

Music test so far:

Monster Killer - TheEnigmaTNG. I picked a recent addition to my library with a solid, obvious beat. Game performs as intended.
Honor Thy Father - Dream Theater. Dream Theater is my "how good is the algorithm" go-to. The game helpfully told me that it could not find a 4/4 beat, which is accurate. The fallback algorithm performed well.
Panic Attack - Dream Theater. I like this song, so I gave it a go, even after I did the stress test. Oddly enough, it said that it found an acceptable beat, which Panic Attack definitely doesn't have, and the gameplay showed it. I'm a little disappointed.
Feathers (Original Mix) - Archie. In Audiosurf, this is my favorite go-fast song. Reds practically all the way. Here, it was not fast all the way. Accurate beats, and it was still fun.
Sound of Silence - Disturbed. I had to run a slow song test, and I recently discovered this excellent cover. Seriously, go listen to it. When the song was really going, the algorithm's adherance to the vocals was great, but in the slow parts, it was a bit patchy. The revelation that "slow songs are a bit boring" is not really news to fans of other music games.

Overall, I'm glad that there is a rhythm game that is really trying to hit the beat accurately. Even Audiosurf is a bit loose with the beat. It's not perfect, but it is very fun.

Still holding out for iTunes playlist integration. Then again, I'm holding out for that in Audiosurf 1/2, Symphony and Beat Hazard, so there's that.

Melody's Escape is quickly becoming one of my favorite rhythm games, beaten only by the original Audiosurf.

Pros:
+ Challenging, includes several difficulty levels and supports custom difficulties
+ Good track generation for all different types of music
+ Mod support makes changing characters, hairstyles, and color schemes very simple
+ Supports calibration to account for audio or visual latency
+ Nice visual style
+ Inexpensive

Cons:
- Visuals can hurt the eyes after a few hours
- Backgrounds lack much variety, although this is pretty minor, as you won't really be paying much attention to them anyways.
- No online leaderboards as of May 2016

I have an immense amount of respect for anyone who can play this game on the hardest difficulty.

Also, to all those people complaining about songs not syncing properly, the game tells you how confident it is about the song you selected, and yes, it's not the best way around the problem, but it definitely helps.

Played for about a few minutes. Discovered I didn't actually have music in my music folder.

Ran around the house trying to find old CDs.

Found Dragon Force's Inhuman Rampage from the year 1936 [2006]

Popped in CD.

Melody doesn't stop flying.

Through the Fire and the Flames is for once not the hardest song in a rythm game [BLASPHEMY! Thoughprobably because it's not techno/electronic. oh well.] (NOTE: this is on the hardest difficulty. I just picked this game up about a few hours before purchasing it)

Melody gains super powers from Dragonforce or something. Because in their music, there are many cases where she DOES NOT STOP FLYING. [Except for through the Fire and the Flames. Only sometimes she stops flying in that one. Sometimes.] Make it better, a lot of themes Dragon Force uses in some of their music is flying freely. Glorious!!
City for Eternity gets really hard at the end though, though it's late enough into the song that messing up there doesn't entirely matter.

This game is awesome, and I would recommend it for anyone who loves rhythm and music. I don't usually have my own rhythm and music games, and after picking this one up, I had to share!

DO NOT PLAY IF YOU'RE A MUSICIAN.

I personally find this game both entertaining and frustrating. I wasn't sure whether or not to vote up or down.

PROS:
Intriguing graphics
Mostly good gameplay
Comes with music
Option to watch a computer-controlled AI go through the level perfectly

CONS:
Rhythm-based gameplay is EVER SO SLIGHTLY off. I'm not even mindlessly ranting either. I'm the percussion section leader, so I know what I'm talking about. The "advanced algorithms" are good, but sometimes they're not quite precise. There always seems to be an annoyingly slight delay on when I should actually be pressing the buttons in order to get 5 hearts.

In conclusion, it still feels like an early access game. It needs a bit of tweaking.

ME is a sort of side-scrolling Stepmania/DDR played with the keyboard. The premise is simple: choose a song (your own or from the selection the game comes with), and your character runs from left to right. Arrows appear, with the frequency determined by your song. Hit the proper button as your cursor passes over it, with some arrows requiring you to hold the key.

There are four difficulties. The lowest allows you to press any key, while the higher ones differentiate between WASD and arrow keys, and can require you to use both throughout the song. The range means players of all skill levels can enjoy a casual experience or more intense play, though the harder difficulties can mess with dyslexics.

The controls are simple, the aesthetic is clean and beautiful, the game works with pretty much any song, Steam Workshop makes the already pleasant visuals better, and the game is suited to both quick play or extended sessions. The game even unpauses with a timed delay to give you a chance to remember where you left off. The only potential issue with the game is the side-scrolling background. The movement has been known to cause motion sickness in players, but this can be alleviated by simply deactivating it.

I really like this game all summed up but something is missing that would make this game all the more better and that is the sense of achievement. I really like how you can choose what ever music you want to incorporate into the game and the fact that there are levels already added But, to make this game feel whole I feel like there should be unlockable levels through achievements. This would make the game a whole lot better in my eyes and I do hope to see more base levels and stuff like this in Future updates if the game does get updated.
