Touch support, video loading fixes, and better score replays

Here's what's new in the latest update:

  • Oculus Touch support in beta
  • Loading fixes for the video player
  • Improved score replays
  • Add more information about the user and challenge
  • Lots of small bugs fixed

Oculus Touch support

Since the last patch, the game has been ported over to Oculus Touch, now in private beta. Are you interested in helping to beta test our Oculus port? Send us your Oculus username via Twitter to @SoundboxingVR or e-mail with the subject "Oculus Beta". This is only good for about a week - if you're interested, hurry up and reach out!

Video loading fixes

Games are way more fun when they work properly. In Soundboxing, the most important thing is to be able to load and play challenges, so when the video player bugs out, it's a showstopper. In the past two weeks the video code has been fully rewritten from the ground up, this time with the aim of improving reliability. It wasn't the goal of the work, but incidentally, videos should load slightly faster now.

Improved score replay mode

If you click on a high score in the leaderboards, now it brings you to a real replay, where you can see the score and streak info as it unfolds. Also you'll be able to see the explosions as they happened. Try it out - it's a lot more fun now!

More user and challenge info cards in the game

Sometimes it can be hard to find good challenges, but the best way is to follow great users. And you find users to follow by seeing their info attached to the content you like best. Now there is more user info shown in various places, like on the new score replay mode, or in play mode!

Many small bugs fixed

After porting the game to Oculus Touch, a lot of work went into going around and fixing up the little bugs that had cropped up - many of which had nothing to do with porting the game. You should notice a bit more polish all around.


Thank you for all your support this year - I've had a blast building Soundboxing. I hope to be able to continue building it next year, too! If you enjoy the game, the best gift you can get me this Christmas is to tell someone about my game, or better yet - buy it for them :) Merry Christmas, and happy holidays to everyone!

Soundboxing Community & Settings Update!

The last month of Soundboxing has been a blast - it's been so great seeing all of the new challenges being created. The creativity in everyone's newest challenges are off-the-charts!

Another big patch update today:

  • Now you can follow your favorite users to find the best content!
  • Local scoreboards - compete against people who have played on your computer
  • Redesigned the look and feel of the UI both in the game and on the website
  • More challenging game modes which amp up the speed
  • Experimental left-handed mode
  • Easier scrolling on all lists
  • Bug fixes and performance improvements!

Follow your favorite users

When you log in with the new update, we'll load up all of your Steam friends and put all their activity into a feed so you can easily find great new content created or recommended by your friends. You can also follow users right from inside the game.

Local scoreboards
It's fun to compete online, but it's even more fun to compete against people standing right next to you. Starting with this update, you can choose either local or global scoreboards, and the game will remember your setting.

More game modes
If you're not finding Soundboxing to be a challenge, try increasing the speed to "Fast" mode - it's a lot more difficult. If you're feeling *really* adventurous, try "Insane" mode!

Left-handed mode
Are you a leftie? Tired of repeated notes with your wrong hand? Try changing the game mode to the experimental left-handed version, and we'll flip all the notes for you. Challenges that you make will be flipped for right-handed people, so you don't have to think about it.

Other fixes
It should be much easier to scroll on lists of items now - there was a touchpad sensitivity bug that has been resolved. Score and challenge upload performance doubled. Now you can turn off the dancing robots, the explosions, and the screen shake if you find it distracting or need some extra performance. Numerous other bugfixes were made.

Future plans
I've been listening to all your feedback and as things stand, these are currently Soundboxing's top development priorities:
  • Oculus Touch support - a lot of this work was done in this patch to prepare for this
  • Fix for the player sometimes playing noises in the background
  • Beatmap editor
  • Punch field height/size adjustments
  • Full pagination everywhere - a lot of work was done in this patch to prepare for this
  • Free demo
  • Improve social feed with user suggestions
  • Automatic beatmap creation
