Update v0.7.4: New skin & haircuts + a mod editor

Patch update v0.7.4.0: New skin & haircuts + mod editor



Major Changes
  • Added a mod editor/studio. You can now very easilly create your own skins, hairstyles and color themes and edit them all in real-time (Windows only).
  • Added "slow-mo" jumps in running sections, for very specific occurences where the music's energy drastically drops during a few seconds. Those jumps can be identified on the song preview graph by a blue vertical dashed line (note that they are quite rare and mostly found in electro music)
  • Added new hairstyles: "Long Twin Tails", "Short" and "Braided Ponytail"
  • Added new skin: "White Dress"
  • Added new color scheme: "Dark"

Modding Changes
  • You can access the new Mod Editor in the game's installation folder, under the name "ModStudio.exe". I will soon write a tutorial on how to use this tool, but it should be quite simple to grasp the basics if you're already familiar with Melody's Escape custom content creation. The main advantages are real time color editing and texture reloading.
  • Added a "belt" skin element for the character skin (empty on the default skin). This element is drawn above the legs and is tied to the position of the "pelvis" element. You can use it for instance to draw a skirt above the legs
  • Hairlocks are now drawn above the static sprite of a haircut.

Minor Changes
  • Added some noise/dithering to the sky's background gradient, so that the gradient horizontal lines are less noticeable and to get a slightly more gritty visual result.
  • Removed the background gradient in menus screen as it resulted in visible horizontal lines with some color schemes.
  • The flying mode's backgrounds were slightly offset so that they don't intersect visually with the orbs anymore, for better visibility.
  • Hair movement now flow more naturally for all animations where Melody rolls (especially with very long hairstyles where it was too stiff before)
  • Flying mode is now slightly faster and running mode is now slightly slower
  • Multiple changes to the default color palette
  • Fixed folders with a dot "." character in their name being shown as playlists in the music selection menu
  • Fixed scrolling the music list with LB/RB shoulder button (or PgUp/PgDown keys) being able to overflow if the list was small.
  • Removed the "disable dynamic hair simulation" performance option as its cost was quite minimal compared to its high visual quality impact.
  • Fixed fullscreen mode issues when restarting the game on Linux
  • The Mac port is now using universal binaries, which should fix Workshop Skin loading issue that prevented some players from running the game after subscribing to a skin.

Being an old fart who played almost all Rhythm games since Bust a Move (Bust a Groove) on PS1, i would say this game is very good. actually the best from the (play your own music) games. the gameplay consists of colored buttons that appear in the air (colors matches the buttons on the xbox controller) and arrows that appear on the ground, on the easier difficulties you can use the arrows to hit both ground and air notes, or just the buttons to hit all notes. if you choose intense or higher then the buttons will be used for air notes and arrows for ground notes.

+ Graphics are good and the whole atmosphere is great with the rain and the colors..etc.
+ Solid gameplay, with difficulties to suit your skill level.
+/- Soundtrack, depends on what music you listen to :D
+ note generator works great so far with the tracks i played.
+ plays many audio formats (MP3, M4a,Ogg, even aif files)
Highly recommended.

(Early access review. I really hope they fix the motion blur.)

PREPARE YOUR EYES don't play this game for prolonged periods of time, the intense BLURRY side-scrolling can be nauseating. That's my only real problem with the game; after every song, I take a 15 minute break to rest my eyes.

The REAL selling point for this the novelty of getting to play your favorite songs. I tried piano pieces, theme songs, arhythmic experimental tracks, video game soundtracks - they all work, and it's a marvelous feeling getting to choose what song to play to.

I admire the programming's ability to detect the beat of songs. The arrows/notes don't fall into the typical predictable beat of the song, instead there is a degree of complexity to it, a synchopation.

Like I said, the only downside is the intense side-scrolling can strain your eyes badly. If you're a fan of rhythm & beat games, this is the first one on Steam which I think really captures the spirit of the genre.

Early Access-Review
ja hallo erstmal, :D

also ich muss sagen mir persönlich gefällt das Spiel erstmal sehr.
die liederkennung ist sehr gut und passt auch gut zum rhytmus des liedes.
mann hat 4 farben je nachdem ob es hoch, runter, links oder rechts geht. (im standart farbschema sind das rosa, gelb, blau und grün)
das spiel ist steamworkshop unterstüzt dh. mann kann sich skinns für das farbschema und melody (haare und körper) downloaden. (ich persönlich laufe mit melody im miku hatzune style rum :D)

info: nightcore ist nicht schwerer als die normal version von den liedern aber repp ist etwas anspruchsvoller (kommt halt auf den rhytmus an ne :D)


relax mode ist in meinen augen zu einfach^^ aber für anfänger ist das gut damit mann lernt wann man drücken muss damit man die "töne"(?) trifft.

normal mod: regelmäßige abwechslung von den 4 farben jenach höhen, tiefen und rhytmus des liedes. :D

für alle die den intens und overload modus nicht checken (ich spiele mit tastatur)
intens mode: die normalen 4 farben muss man dann mit wasd spielen und die lila farbe muss mann dann mit den feiltasten spielen.

overload mode: wie intens die normalen 4 farben mit wasd und die die doppelt angezeigt wird muss mann dann die feiltasten zu unterstüzung nehmen.
ich persönlich stell mir das mit controler leichte vor! :D


das einzige was in meinen augen fehlt sind die sammelkarten! xD

und wenn ich normal music höre das ich geistig sehe wie melody dazu rennen würde ich weis nicht ob ich diesbezüglich schon ein knacks weg hab ^^´(bitte nicht darauf antworten ich brauche nicht die bestätigung von anderen disbezüglich :P)



für fragen fragt mich einfach hab meistens ein offenes ohr
seelsorge ist nur am wochenende xD (spass)

Rechtschreib- sowie Grammtikfehler sind keinesfalls auf geringe Bildung zurückzuführen sondern Special Effects meiner Tastatur und zur allgemeinen Erheiterung.

Ich liebe es. Der Erkennungs-Algorithmus dieses Spiels ist absolut genial und passt zu den meisten Songs sehr gut.
Medium ist mir teilweise noch zu schwer, aber das ist höchstwahrscheinlich gewöhnungssache.

Auf jedenfall eine Empfehlung von mir!

Melody's Escape

Das Prinzip des Spiels ist recht einfach jedoch solte man die Geschwindigkeit der Spieloptionen nicht unterschätzen!!!!.

Es kann zu leichten Augenirritationen kommen, nach einer weile des Spielen's wierd man aber schnell Freude an Melody's Escape finden da es einfach nur extrem viel spaß macht!!.
Zudem passt sich das Spiel Perfekt den jeweiligen Songs an die man am liebsten hört!

Im Ganzen ist dieses Spiel ein Platz in der Spielebibliothek wirklich wert!!

Endlich wieder einmal eine Gelegenheit die alten Songs von früher raus zu suchen, nicht weil ich diese hören will aber alles über 135 BPM wird einfach nur zu Stress.
Die Grafik ist eigentlich ganz nett, aber irgendwann zentriert man seinen Blick auf das erste drittel des Bildschirms und hofft die richtige Taste zu erwischen.
Habe es mit dem Gamepad probiert aber komme mit der Tastertur doch besser zu recht.
Wer den höchsten Schwierigkeitsgrad meistert, der kann auch eine Tonne Nitroclycerin mit einem Bagger der an einem Hubschrauber hängt balancieren, während er sich einen Joint dreht.
Wünschen würde ich mir noch einen Repeat-Button wenn man einen Titel fertig hat und im Highscorescreen ist.

Melody's Escape is a rhythm game where you play as a female protagonist and go on a journey based on the kind of song you are playing.

PROS
- In sync with the music very well
- Background is very colorful
- If you miss an obstacle it won't hinder the song
- You can customize your character
- 2 types of difficulty which are song difficulty and game difficulty
- Controls are almost solid (get a breif animation delay every now and then)
- Great rhythem game since Audiosurf

CONS
- Doesn't sync with spotify (only works with songs on your computer)
- Playing for a long peroid of time can hurt your eyes (due to colors and color changing)
- Sometimes the buttons don't register when you hit them on time (By sometimes I mean only 2-3% of the time this happens)

Overall
The game is great considering the price, it's also a new way to enjoy your music you almost feel as if your in that world working your way through the tune of the song. With steam workshop avaiable for this game as well i'm expecting there will be tons of new customizations for the character and possibly more backgrounds which will make the game even more awesome to play.

I regret hesitating to buy this game for this long. It's totally worth its price. Beat detection is pretty good, especially with songs that has a "running" feeling in it. I've played Audiosurf (for a long time enough to unlock all achievements), Audiosurf 2, Beat Hazard, Rhythm Zone and Polynomial (which is a something I regret a lot); and so far I can safely say Melody's Escape is on par with Audiosurf's song-analysis, if not better.

A "must-play" for all players who enjoy rhythm games, and something I'd mention to all my friends.

Melody's Escape is a nice rythm game. I like it a lot because it's customizable (e. g. Skin of Melody, background) and the gameplay is amazing. You might think: "This is a rythm game. It's gotta be both boring and hard at the same time. There's no way I could do that." I'm telling you, that's completely wrong.

While you're playing the track, you can listen to your most favorite songs. But don't let that song overwhelm you, you still have to control Melody.

Even though some tracks might be hard even on the "Relaxed" difficulty - you can't lose. There's not even a scoreboard allowing you to compare you with your friends or other people playing this game.

So yeah. These are my reasons for recommending this game. You definitely have to try it out.

This is the second greatest female character running from left-to-right dodging obstacles in time with my music game I have ever played. The only thing stopping it from taking first place is its complete lack of wireframe bunny rabbit protagonists. I give this game 10 vibs out of 10 ribbons overall.

This game takes some getting used to compared to Audiosurf. Your button presses have to be spot on in order to play effectively. Of course, if you don't feel like button tapping, there's a visualizer so you can at least watch your music being played. But just like Audiosurf, being able to play with your music adds virtually infinite replayability. Not to mention the art style is nice, and your character is actually kinda cute (reminds me of a Vocaloid girl, in fact). Still a good buy for $10, but if you're weighing between this and Audiosurf, I'm going to say right now: You're probably better off with Audiosurf. Much more accessible and newbie-friendly, and it's the same price.

This game kicks serious ♥♥♥. I wasn't sure at first, but once I got to playing it, I noticed how relaxing it is to punch buttons and keep the beat with some of my favorite songs. Very simple, and I've noticed myself getting steadily better, especially since there's no consequence to missing a beat. Most casual game I've ever played. Only thing I'd change is the movement of beats and obstacles, they're a little stuttery and tend to make my eyes hurt. On the plus side, I play it every night because it makes my eyes really tired, and it helps me sleep. 4.5 out of 5

This game is like if Audiosurf met bit.trip Runner. The gameplay is similar to Runner in that your character moves at a fixed speed and you need to avoid obstacles by pressing buttons on the beat of the song, but, like Audiosurf, it's made using your own songs.

Things I liked:
  • Levels created quickly from MP3s -- short load time (unlike Rhythm Zone)
  • Nice graphics without being overwhelming
  • Comfortable difficulty
  • "Easy to learn, hard to master"

Things I didn't:
  • Sometimes the button presses seemed a little off-beat
  • I wish you could increase the difficulty without changing the button configuration
  • No title screen music?

Overall a good game, but some kinks that are still being worked out, I guess.

I saw a trailer for this game a while back and I hadn't really thought to act upon it until just yesterday, and I can say for certain that this beats any other rhythm or music game I've played. The controls are very much so Guitar Hero-esque, but each one does different things when prompted, so you might duck under a floating platform, hop over a bump, and so on with rather visually pleasing aesthetics.

What really grabbed me, however, was the gameplay that is custom-tailored to the music you set the game to. All you have to do is drag and drop your music file onto the game window and off it goes, analyzing the music file and creating a series of obstacles for you to overcome as you run through alongisde the song. No other rhythm or music game I've ever played has had this kind of system where it makes the level for you just by analizing the song. Others I've tried were Frets on Fire, Stepmania, and the like and all of those required you to place the notes/beats/moves yourself if you wanted to play a game with your own song, which, if you enjoy doing that, then keep playing those ones. In the meanwhile, I'll be playing all the songs I want, as soon as the urge strike me in levels that are customized and built right at the very get-go.

And as far as the visual graphics go, the captivation and beauty of such simple design elements are quite stunning, and are such a specific kind of beautiful that it doesn't distract you from the gameplay, yet you can admire it in its entirety while you're playing the song through.

All in all, 9/10. Positively addictive and truly a beautiful-looking game. The musical analytical system is so brilliant, I could see other developers trying to emulate this sort of system for themselves. Bravo, game devs. Bravo.

I Highly Recommend this game for these reasons...

1.Its a nice change of pace
2.The whole idea of the game is Really cool i mean a whole stage being generated to the music your running to is awesome
3.The stage generation is actually dead on when ever you have to hit a button its the same time as a beat
4.The colours of the game is pretty
5.Character customization is included sure its limited but its still awesome
6.Steam Workshop and all
7.Finding your music in the game to put in is really easy
8.It has a "Recent Music" spot so you can re run on Music you have ran to before
9.It actually keeps a score of each song
10.Its still in Early Access so anything not in it can be added
11.It has achievements

So those are some reasons i recommend this game

however if you do end up playing it and the beats are ever off in the game thats your computer lagging i personaly havent had this problem but ya know XD
