What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Audica started as a passion project for a small team of developers within Harmonix. We chose to launch Audica into Early Access because we believe we have a compelling core game that we can develop into the next must-play rhythm game with your help. One of the benefits of a small team is that we’re nimble and can quickly act on community feedback, making Audica an ideal fit for Early Access.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We expect to exit Early Access before the end of 2019.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“For the full release, we plan to have:

  • 25+ song soundtrack
  • Campaign Mode
  • Practice Mode
  • Additional environments
  • Additional weapon sets
  • Expanded leaderboard functionality
  • Possibly new gameplay mechanics

That said, we're in Early Access for a reason and community feedback may change our plans for the full version.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Audica today features a polished core gameplay experience which includes:

  • 10 Song Soundtrack featuring licensed music
  • 4 difficulties per song
  • Online leaderboards
  • One environment
  • One weapon set

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

“We expect the price to increase upon full release.”

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

“We’re looking forward to working closely with our community and are expecting community involvement to critically shape the course of our development. We will be actively participating in discussion on our Discord, Steam forums and Reddit throughout development about topics including song selection, authoring and the development of new features, mechanics (should Audica have overdrive?), environments and weapons.”

AUDICA v0.1.2 Update Notes

Hey everyone!

Thank you for your continued support! Your feedback from AUDICA’s first week of Early Access has been incredibly helpful – keep it coming! We’ve just released an update (0.1.2) that adds more of the customization options you’ve been asking for, fixes for the bugs you’ve helped us track down, and more.

Let’s get to the patch notes for version 0.1.2:

  • Fixed a bug where certain melee strikes were incorrectly counted as misses.
  • You can now adjust your height from the Settings menu. This will increase accessibility and should help you with melee hit detection.
  • Added an option for flipping slot targets for players who prefer them like this.
  • Added an in-game warning addressing a Unity bug (fix pending) that affects framerate when the game window is not in focus.
    • Note: Keeping the AUDICA window focused will maintain the best framerate
  • Sustain and chain breaks are now displayed on the results screen to improve messaging when players hit 100% of the targets, but leave a chain or sustain early, thus not receiving a FC.
  • Higher difficulties are now locked for new players. Advanced unlocks for all songs after starting one song on Moderate, and Expert unlocks after starting one song on Advanced.
  • Added a message in the tutorial about resting your arms.
  • Added an option to reduce automatic re-centering.
  • The Total Leaderboard now displays the “Top %” correctly on the Friends tab.
  • Fixed a bug where some players were getting stuck on the title screen.
  • Fixed bug where leaderboards didn’t work for players whose computers are set to other number formats.

Please continue to share any issues or feedback you may for AUDICA! Additionally, you can check our newly launched Trello board to see known issues, what’s next on our roadmap (including two new songs coming next week), and more!

About This Game

Audica is a VR Rhythm Shooter from Harmonix, the makers of Rock Band™ and Dance Central™. Armed with a pair of rhythm blasters, you shoot and smash targets to the beat of a soundtrack featuring songs from some of the world’s most popular electronic artists. The better your timing, accuracy and form, the better your score. The better your score, the higher your place on the Audica Leaderboards.

Audica is incredibly intuitive and immersive from the first time you play - use your blue and orange blasters to shoot color-coded targets to the beat while in a breathtaking cosmic arena. On expert difficulty, Audica gameplay is intense and exacting. If you want to claim a spot at the top of the leaderboards, you’ll need to practice until you and your blasters become one, performing a tightly choreographed ballet of beat-blasting brilliance.
