Updated: Recent Songs are now the default song view

Audioshield just got a small update that moves Recent Songs to the top of the song browser list and adds support for a larger number of recent videos.

The idea is to show more players the songs they want to play right when the game starts. A list for favorite songs is a good suggestion too - I'm looking into that.

Changes:

  • Updated to the latest SteamVR
  • Made Recent Songs the default song browser view
  • Increased the number of videos listed with recent songs
  • Dethrones and Challenges can be selected. This switches to the relevant song and difficulty.
  • Fixed a missing script warning seen in the game's logs

About This Game

"Audioshield: Feels like music-melee Missile Command-and we love it" (Ars Technica)

"AudioShield -- a rhythm game -- is HTC Vive's killer app" (Jeff Grubb, VentureBeat)

"Let's punch the hell out of music in virtual reality with Audioshield" (Polygon)

"Audioshield found some neuroreceptor in the deepest cavern of my brain—one that can only be stimulated by an incredible combination of sight, sound, and motion—and flooded it with a sensation that has left me reeling for days." (Ars Technica)

Experience your entire music collection in VR. Audioshield puts you at the point of impact for every hit in your music. Beats glide in slowly for mellow parts of songs, then ramp up for intense parts of songs with cross-body, double-shield, and high-altitude hits.

Audioshield uses an advanced version of Audiosurf 2's music analysis system to sync with any song from your collection - and also with online streaming from Youtube.

Every song has its own online leaderboard. Audioshield also supports local leaderboards to easily compete with friends during look-at-my-awesome-new-VR-system parties.

"Fighting Music in VR. This is the coolest sh** ever." (Jericho)

"The physicality of standing in place to fend off incoming orbs feels powerful" (IGN)

"...felt like we were being pulled into a futuristic trance-like state with sparks of orange and blue splattering about" (Maximum PC)

"...your music library comes to life as a fully immersive gaming experience" (UploadVR)
