Now available on Linux and Mac!

Melody's Escape is now available on Linux and Mac, as a native port using FNA/Mono.

Everything should be functional, except for a few issues with fullscreen mode that will be fixed in the next patch, and "drag'n'drop" which isn't working yet.

If you encounter any issues on those platforms, please don't hesitate to post them in the Linux and Mac support thread.
If the mouse isn't responding correctly after switching to fullscreen, you can use the keyboard to navigate the menus.

Update v0.7.3.0 - Performance boost on integrated GPUs

New "Anti-aliasing" (MSAA) option

Disabling AA (in the "Performances" options menu) greatly improves performances on low-end machines (especially on Intel HD GPU laptops), at the cost of jagged edges on long obstacles (please note that this change requires a restart of the game).
If you were previously struggling to run Melody's Escape at 60FPS, you might wanna try to disable anti-aliasing and re-enable backgroud visualizations and/or post-processing (to medium) for the eye-candy effects, as without the antialiasing it might now run smoothly at 60fps!

This option will default to OFF on integrated GPUs. However, the GPU's type can only be detected by the game after that the setting has already been applied, so the first time that you run the game after this update, if the option was auto-set to "OFF" you still need to restart the game for it to take effect!

Effect preview:


Other changes
  • Added a sound menu option to disable the audio preview when selecting a music.
  • Tons of behind-the-scenes changes to the engine to prepare for the Mac and Linux port of the game (coming soon! :) )


    Update 0.7.3.1 Fixed BASS addons for additional formats not being loaded by the music engine
    Update 0.7.3.2 Fixed custom skins not being loaded when restarting the game

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

Enjoyable, and one of the better music analysis systems I've seen in a game.

The tempo detection is a bit hit-and-miss with anything over 180-200BPM, but still follows the beat, so still playable.

Good mix of difficulties, with the custom difficulty settings letting you tailor it to your taste.

FLAC support and decent unicode support.

It sadly doesn't have the ability to scrobble tracks to LastFM at the time of writing.

This seems to be better as a visualizer than an acutal game in my eyes. Just set it on autoplay, and look at the amazing colors. Plug in a controller too to feel that strangely soothing vibration of it.

For actually playing the game, it is very competant at what it does, though the timing can be strict. That said, failure is okay, as it does not interrupt the song, instead just a quick glance at bleached colors before jumping right back in.

Overall, get this game if only for the unique design of it.

Just a heads-up: I'm writing this review on 15 October 2014. As of today, Melody's Escape is still in Early Access, so this review might not be accurate if the game undergoes more development.

Melody's Escape has heart, and its base concept is so simple that I'm surprised at how challenging it is. The problem is that a good portion of the challenge doesn't come from the gameplay, but from the interface and the bugs.

In full screen mode, the game doesn't register button/key-presses worth a damn, so I played it in windowed mode instead. It works much better in windowed mode, but the timing of key presses still feels somewhat arbitrary. This is most notable in sections that have evenly spaced single notes that, by rights, should have a regular 4/4 beat, but even tapping right along with the song yields a hit only 80% of the time at best. This includes Relaxed mode, where (supposedly) you can LITERALLY just tap one button in time with the song for most of the prompts. I get the distinct impression that this is not because the prompts aren't timed right, but rather, the game still isn't registering all of my key-presses correctly.

In sections that mix "button" prompts (orbs) with "direction" prompts (obstacles), the game tends to ignore between 30-50% of all my "direction" presses, even on difficulty modes where the directions and buttons are interchangeable (The lowest two difficulties). Additionally, when two "long-note" sections, which require you to hold the button, are back to back, the game tends to ignore my button press on the second prompt. For most of these issues, I find that if I press the key a split second early, it tends to register more often, but what is the point of a rhythm game if you have to force yourself to ignore the rhythm in order to play?

On top of this, the process of respawning after you die is not very forgiving. I find that most of my deaths come in twos, because Melody will fall down, reappear, and immediately trip over something else because the game isn't ready to register key presses yet, or something.

My last major point of contention is that the difficulty level of the game, even without the bugs, is off the charts. Personally, I can't imagine how anybody referred to this game as "relaxing". Even some of my most drifty, relaxing music was face-meltingly difficult at anything other than "Relaxed" difficulty, which just requires you to tap away at the same key for most of a song. I don't know if the devs read reviews, but I'd suggest changing, or implementing a setting to allow the player to adjust, the speed at which the stage goes by (or the speed at which Melody runs, if you prefer). A follow-on suggestion to that would be two sliding scales of difficulty. The current one changes the fundamental game mechanics so that you either have to use one button at a time, four buttons, or four buttons AND four directions. I'd like to see a second difficulty setting that simply lets me adjust how frequently the prompts appear. Only having to press the B button doesn't help me if I have to press it 16 times in one syncopated measure.

Finally, and this is NOT a complaint but a suggestion, I would really like to see the "AutoPlay" mode be able to play more than one song consecutively. If you're going to play it up as a visualizer, why not let Melody just run her way through an entire folder?

If the timing/sync issues could be resolved, and if I could play it fullscreen, I'd probably give the game an 8/10 or 9/10 even with the insane difficulty level. It has style, the concept is simple and proven, and honestly, who doesn't like games that respond to your personal music library? As it stands, though, it gets one point for style, one point for letting me use my music library, one point for having polished visuals (or, if you want to be brutally honest, an aesthetic so simple that the visuals couldn't be anything other than polished), one point for the solid concept, and an extra point for the music thing (because I REALLY like games that let me use my music library), for a wobbly 5/10. I look forward to seeing where this game goes. I do recommend it, but I also recommend not expecting a perfect game. It's still in Early Access and I like it, but it definitely needs work.

this game looks great and honestly I was super excited when I first opened it, but if truth be told I wasn't able to play one song. This could be a problem with me keyboard, but the game didn't got any of my cammands, it just doesn't responds... also it would be neat that you could sinc it with spotify... idk.

leaving that aside this game is a dream come true and probably you wont have the same problems that I had, so I just can't not recommen this game, and if you have the same problems that I have, please tell me how to fix it.

Great game, it has come along way since it was released on steam. It has 4 different difficulties from relaxed mode which lets you use only 1 button to extreme which makes you use the arrow keys along with the regular keys. The game syncs up fairly well with whatever song you're playing. Must buy if you're a music game fan.

Interesting rhythm game based on a program meant for analysing beats of a song.
It's far from perfect, but does a good job from the songs in my library.
Melody herself is customizable as well, be it from making your own skin, or downloading one from the workshop.

This is not a game that will keep you interested for hours at a time nor will it last long over all. if you have played for an hour you have basically seen everything there is to see. the mechanics are simple and the difficulty spike from relaxing to normal is large but after that it just gets dull. you can use any song you like but this just makes me want to listen to them normally or play audio surf. over all there’s nothing wrong with it there’s just not a lot there

Melody's Escape is a pretty good game, the art style is amazing, the concept is excellent that being said I think the game is not worth its 10$ (Early Access) Value. What got me to buy this game is the art style because it looked lovely, that being said the gameplay is what bothered me, your basically on a linear path your character moves by herself and you just wait to press arrow keys, you become more focused on the buttons you have to press that you lose focus on the visuals in the background, and that really draws away from the game.

The intesity of your music does not always sync well, I have played some intense songs that aren't all that intense ingame and I have played slow songs that gameplay wise get intense, so its not properly balanced. I have also noticed that there is a repetative feel to the three different linear paths, the first time you play its usually you running a linear path, then the second song you play its you jumping higher or lower on platforms, and the third song is usually you flying, now this is the case for me I don't know about anyone else but I have noticed that.

Overall the game is beautiful in its art, its simple & user friendly, gameplay wise the focusing on buttons more then anything else draws away from the game but that being said the game is still satisfactory.

Melody's Escape is a game in the same boat as Symphony or *groan* Audiosurfer. Each level is a song in your music collection of choice. Sadly, though, the game doesn't contain any preset tunes, but that's okay as long as you've got a thick selection to choose from. The game doesn't feature any campaign or story, for that matter, but perhaps that would ruin the charm. The game, aside from it's core components (which I remind you are top notch), is rather barren to say the least. Perhaps some menu music (FOR YOUR MUSIC GAME) and some more background elements would help, but I don't know. Local Multiplayer sounds perfect for this title, with 2-4 different players fighting for that perfect score (of course, not colliding). By now, you may be thinking I've been pretty harsh on the game and wondering why I recommend this, and with my answer comes the game's saving grace: Early Access! Just because these notable features aren't included in the game DOES NOT mean they won't be included, because this isn't the final product. While quite a few people I know are always skeptical about this Steam feature after multiple particular blunders (YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE), but the devs seem pretty good about it so far. And don't forget that lovely Steam Workshop.
On to the actual gameplay, however! In this humble little game, you control the mysterious Melody as she runs away from, uh, something probably really dangerous and stuff. Yeah, that. It must be really dangerous, though, because she'd rather not face it head-on but instead take the scenic HELL OBSTACLES OF HELL route. Yep, this game isn't as easy as it may lead on. In fact, you better start off with Relaxing mode before even touching 'Normal', or you're gonna have a bad time. Now, slide your headphones on and take a trip through Melody's musical drops, hurdles, and slides, all synced to your chosen song! I have to say that for all the frustration and guilt (Melody's animations when she fails most obstacles are hard to watch) I had starting off, when you get that perfect ranking, you feel like a god. While some songs don't work well, or in some cases, not at all, the ones that do work REALLY work. I'd be sure to have the zoom all the way out, however, or you'll get one hell of a headache. If you can manage, I'd also suggest a 360 controller.

Final Statement: It looks like you can run away from your problems after all.
83/100

If you're a daydreamer, you'll love this game. If you were one of those kids to listen to music and imagine a man running outside of the car window, you will love this game.

Giving it a wide review isn't easy considering that every will have a different music genre taste. All I can say about the game though is that the controls are convenient, the style is nice and easy to follow along with. There's no pointless garbage flying around the screen, no flashing lights, no insane break downs to leave you confused and scrambling to hit the right buttons. It's just a calm, relaxing game that gives you the best of enjoying music and gaming.

The replay value is neverending. As long as you have music in your library, you can keep playing this game for as long as your little heart desires.

This is probably the only game I will ever give a real review for and all I have to say is...
Holy ♥♥♥♥, best rhythm game I've ever played.
It's an early access game and costs $9.99, but it is definitely worth the money.
Setting up your music is extremely user friendly and simple, no annoying syncing.
Regardless of music genre the game adapts to the beat and rhythm and you definitely do not get repetitive like some other rhythm games out there. Also, highly recommend you play with a controller rather than keyboard (unless you like the challenge--either way you're insane if you do that)

tl;dr: buy the damn game if you are into rhythm games, highly recommend
10/10 would space jam again.

I saw this game before it was introduced to Steam during random trips around the internet. At first I thought it was going to be like most all other rythem games with the same repettitive motions. But when actual gameplay was released I freaked out. It combined the childhood thing a lot of us did in the car when we imagined the person or animal running outside the window; jumping, sliding, grinding, and preforming ninja moves over anything in our way. Melody's Escape combined the mental simulation of your faveorite music with minimal, yet beautiful detail and eye catching movement. With the added bonus of the Steam Workshop this game can take on any form that your imagination can think of.

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.
