What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Early Access is a great platform as it gives us the ability to get feedback from new users. Block Rocking Beats is being developed with full transparency to our users, and we will make adjustments and additions based directly on their comments.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We don't expect Early Access to last longer than three months.”

  • Interactive VJ mode with audio reactive visualizer
  • Save locally or in the cloud
  • Share tracks via cloud platform
  • Language: English (Chinese, Spanish, Japanese coming soon)

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

  • Platform independent: Oculus Touch, HTC Vive
  • Multiplayer, up to 3 players
  • 3 sample based instruments, updated monthly
  • Samples royalty free
  • 1 freestyle instrument with real-time audio synthesis
  • Voice chat
  • Timeline for building your track

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“Block Rocking Beats will remain to be at the current price even after Early Access.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“Transparency and constant communication with the community is crucial. We will invite certain users to test our new features before we roll it out to the broader group.”

About This Game

CREATE POWERFUL BEATS TOGETHER IN VR


Play
Is it a musical instrument? Is it a game? Actually, it’s both. Block Rocking Beats enables you to play with music in a virtual sound studio. Choose one of three sample based instruments and start rocking the beat. Play drums, bass or take the lead and compose the main melody. Fine-tune the sound of your instruments to your liking, with various audio effects such as Reverb and Delay. You can even go freestyle and create your own instrument, with your own sounds constructed in real-time.

Record
Up to three players can join your virtual band. Play together with other music lovers from any location. Discuss ideas via voice chat while sharing the sounds you create. Use the handy timeline to help you build your complete track. Create powerful beats together in VR and rock the new world.

Share

Showtime!
To complete the virtual experience, an audio reactive visualizer adds cool visual FX to the sounds you create. VJ mode enables you to enhance your tracks and interactively change lights and animated projections on the virtual walls.
