1. Vibrant Psychedelic Art Direction
2. Catchy Electro Music
3. Lasers, Rainbows, Cosmos, and Beats!
4. Good Vibes

S Y N O P S I S:
Cosmic DJ is a short romp through a wild story about keeping the good vibes flowing through electronic music. Its gameplay revolves around 'jamming' to a preset back track and layering instruments and melodies to move onto the next stage. Don't expect much flexibility in terms of music creation. All the tracks are set to a specific key signature, measure, and tempo. There is also a limited number of instruments to play with for each track; all of which are set to a specific chord progression. These limitations, however, don't detract from the simple fun of jamming along and freestyling the sequence of melodies and instruments. The story is humorous and engaging enough for players to plow through the short 1 hour plot (give or take a few minutes depending on how much the player extends each jam session). Some players may think this is too short without enough content. I'd say that the length of the game is appropriate for the context of this title. The experience will leave a smile on your face once it's through and you'll wish there was more. Luckily, there is some replayability in a Quickplay mode that lets you choose sets of instruments to jam with and create new tunes. One of the best features of the game is its ability to export your jam sessions to MP3s, complete with cover art that you make within the game itself, using the various crazy visuals and stickers they provide. All in all, this is a great indie title for anyone who enjoys rhythm games and quirky, offbeat humor with pop art visuals. Give it a shot!

Don't expect very much flexibility in what and how you can create music, and it doesn't even matter because this game is much more about jamming than about fiddling with controls, applying 2xLP filters and trying to make 1/12th notes. (If you actually expect to make your own music maybe you should be looking for a DAW or some actual sequencer software instead.) Cosmic DJ comes with some really good and groovy baseline beats that you can jam along to, and it's a lot of good old casual fun. Highly recommended if you need a musical break from the more conventional games or just want to chill out and mess around a little.

Actually, I imagine this game could do pretty well hooked up to a good stereo and a projector at a party. People can jam along no matter how tone deaf they think they are.

This is one of the weirdest things I've played in a while. Basically you just toss together some sequencer songs to go with a funky story about love, robots, and body-less space dogs. It tells you that you're the best and by the end you've made a little album. I really can't fault it for being exactly what it is and it does kind of share the joy of creating music (no actual talent required).

Note: This is not really a game. It's a toy. An awesome toy that you should buy and play with. You literally cannot lose.

Have you ever dreamed of being a DJ? Playing with all those buttons with labels on them that say "SAMPLE" and making awesome music happen, like magic shooting out of your fingers? How about a DJ in space? And also the DJ is on LSD?

Sorry, I lost my train of thought. Too busy trying to put this corgi back together with my sweet beats.

Just... Just buy it. You will not regret it. And if you do regret it, you're not someone I ever want to hang out with.

This isn't a game, its more of a virtual drug trip, and trust me its addicting! Imagine everything you've ever wanted in a video game.... and this is probably cooler. Make music. Jam with a welsh corgie. Get a robot band back together. SAVE THE COSMOS WITH YOUR FUNKY BEATS! ect. If you like making electronic music with your best friend (The immortal, all-knowing god of MUSIC!!!!) then play this game and begin saving the universe with musics and stuff!

A strange little game that reminds me of an old Casio keyboard I played with when I was a kid. I didnt really make 'real' music, except in my head. Here too... I think a real musician could probably make something of this, but I can at least pretend I am DJ Batman for a little while -_-

As to the plot, I think it is over the top silly, and it is a 'charming' feature of the game. It definitely doesnt take itself seriously, and that is good.

I got this with a half off coupon and I think if you can get it in a bundle or for ~1-2$US then you are going to have a nice little distraction. 6.5/10

Early Access Review
The ideal example of a game that's not exactly a game but a perfectly executed source of pure fun. :)

It's hard to explain why I loved this so much, because it doesn't sound like much. Basically, imagine Audacity, simplify it until a three year old can use it, populate it with a weird and entertaining if not large (yet?) collection of samples, add some cute visuals and you'll get an idea of what this is. Sure, it also includes an extremely short "campaign" with a trippy story, but it's not like anyone who enjoys this will play it to "win". The quick play is where this is at, basically a super simplified but surprisingly entertaining little sequencer.

So if you like the idea of fiddling with music, even if you've never tried it before, you need to give this a go. The price is totally fine for what it offers and as for the Early Access tag, in this case take it to mean: there isn't a great amount of content here atm. But really, who cares? This is the perfect casual cheer-me-up machine. For some weird reason I had a stupid smile plastered on my face the whole time I was playing it and felt like hugging the dev. :) If it had also given me the munchies I'd be surprised it was legal. ;)

A tasty "DAW Simulator" game simple enough for beginners to play with, yet rewarding enough to make (at least somewhat) experienced musicians like myself to feel like they're actually making music. Very short (about an hour long). Just a little disappointed at the lack of a sandbox mode. Cool graphics. More of a toy than a "game", but not in a bad way. I'd love to see the creators elaborate on this.

Early Access Review
2/10 bears if you hate music games.
6.5/10 bears if you like music games.

The bear scale:

< 2 It's crap don't waste your time
2-5 It's below what a bear standard would be.
5-7 It's good, might be a thing in there that's above industry standard
7-9 You will probably enjoy, you should buy this to support the developer
9+ GOTY IF YOU DO NOT HAVE THIS THEN YOU'RE MISSING OUT

DO YOU LIKE RHYTHM GAEMS?

THIS GAME IS ABOUT SOMEONE STEALING THE POWER OF MUSIC, YOU HAVE YOUR 1980's SYNTHESIZER AND HAVE TO BRING DEFEAT THE BAD VIBES WITH

THIS IS LIKE KINDA DDR AND ♥♥♥♥, IT'S GOOD I GOT IT IN A HUMBLE BUNDLE, BRETTY GUD BUT IT SEAMS I CAN JUST SPAM MY MOUSE AND WIN, SO TREAT IT AS A COMFY GAME FOR YOUR FATASS.

WOULD BUY IT IF I LIKED MUSIC GAMES, HELL YOU PROBABLY BROUGHT INTO GUITAR HERO, SO WHY NOT BUY IN TO THIS?

BUY IT OR NOT, IDGAF. PEOPLE SPEND $80 ON COD, THAT'S LIKE 8 COPIES OF THIS ♥♥♥♥♥ FOR YOU AND YOUR M8's TO JAM OUT AND SUCK EACH OTHERS SYNTH'S.

IF THERE WAS MORE SKILL TO IT I WOULD RECOMMEND HIGHLY, BUT NOW I ONLY RECOMMEND IF YOU LIKE MUSIC GAMES, LIKE BEATTRIP BEAT.ETC.

Early Access Review
I'm not sure when or for how much I bought this game, but my assumption was it was a daily deal and it was for 1-2$. I recently installed it and thought I'd give it a whirl. The game does a great job at ensuring it makes fun of itself, is entertaining while still being corny and has decent rhythm mechanics to actually make it fun gameplay wise.

While it wasn't hard to beat, and took less than an hour, it was definitely a blast to try all the different musical options, tap vs. pad & also see all the zany scenarios & visuals that the creators dreamed up to compliment the rhythm game.

If you have a free hour and want to go through a very weird space DJ odyssey (filled with colorful and crazy visuals, a very random story and some fun music) then this game is for you.
