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!

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.

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).

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

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.

I feel like the devs put heart and hardwork into this title, even if it's a simple DJ game.

There isn't much there, but you feel it. You feel like there is.

Kind of like playing with a keyboard or a synthesizer but way more fun.
There are visuals tha go along with the beat you make which just adds to the experience.
The story is silly, the characters are silly, and it's less of a game than it is a musical sandbox.
It really is a blast just to mess around with and see what you can create.

Early Access Review
I recomend this game IF you are ready for a really short story line. There are honestly something like 6 levels. also the level difficulty can be beat by a cat on a keyboard. ANY WAY, this game has some great features like-the levels are not the main part of the game, the music is, you can make music after the levels and save them to your com. AND the story line is short but really funny. the narrator is hilarious and the levels have some what imature but funny graphics. if you actually put time in to making some good music then it will work. some of the bad reviews are based on the fact that 1. the music sounds bad 2. the levels have no challenge. Both of these are true if you SUCK AT IT. yes the levels are easy but you are missing the point of the game. you negetive people spam the z x c v buttons while the more talented people who try to make good music actually use the board in which you can make proper notes. the game is fun and quirky and i would recomend it to people under 18. (maybe under 16).

UPDATE:
I finished this awesome yet super weird game! If you look @ my playtime you see its super short in the Story!! Still, i don´t regret getting it =)
If for low budget a good game!





After 35minutes of Gameplay (with tutorial) i think this:
preety interesting game and also the Save of your musik is awesome!
Not to Mention is interesting for all players to share they´re works!
This is fun if you have Friends playing this game and you can see who has what style of music created by them!

awesome game would give 10/10 for its unique Gameplay and sharing of Music you created!

Pre-Release Review
This game is short, sweet, and for those itching to make a quick beat.

Gameplay wise, this game will have you dishing out beats using many different instruments. I find it delightful when I make a beat that just sounds pretty damn good, and if you enjoy what you made, you have the option to save the music so you can listen to it later. Also, the number of levels are few, but each are fun and offer a unique style that would most likely intrigue you, whether it be the rocket corgis or the flailing puppets.

Moving on to what I have to say about the graphics, I must say, they are charming and I enjoy the retro feel of it all. The game is bright and colorful, and the levels offer different styles to keep things wacky and strange, which I enjoy about this game. It's quirkiness and humor is enjoyable.

The audio, oh, the audio. Being that this is a rhythm game, the music features catchy techno tunes that will have you bobbing your head as you create your music. Also, the narrator, a funky shaped fellow, has an... how should I say... enticing voice.

Overall, this is a game that should be played if you enjoy music, want to create it, and want to experience the quirky world that is Cosmic DJ. Considering the low price, this game is well worth trying.

Fly, rocket corgi, fly!

Just download a free step sequencer like Hydrogen.

Note that although cheap, this game has only about a hundred minutes of gameplay. It doesn't offer a particularly featureful or powerful step sequencer. I doubt I'll touch it again.

This is a gamified tutorial for using a step sequencer. If the game was far longer and introduced more and more features from major step sequencers and itself had a fully featured one built in, it'd be better. It'd be nice if you could reach the point where this produces results similar to what you can achieve with something like Hydrogen. As it is though, there are only a few builtin song structures, your sequences are limited to 8 bars, and there is no kind of song editor nor any kind of automation for mixing or effects.

The content of this game is pretty much clean, so it might be good if you have kids.
