What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We're launching in early access to get the DJ Community involved in the development of this game. Beat.School is already 3 years in development. We've got the gear modled, the audio algorithms in place, and some very cool virtual party scenes ready to go. As we work on the story of the game, we've chosen to launch in early access to give YOU the opportunity to help us craft this DJ Skills & Ear-Training tool.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Beat.School will be in early access for approximately 10 months, with our targeted launch date being summer 2020.”

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

“Early access versions of Beat.School will NOT contain the finished set of DJ tutorials, or the full amount of gigs for the DJ career mode, where you get to play parties, clubs, and festivals around the world as you embark on your virtual DJ career. We will launch new gigs periodically during the early access phase of development as a thank-you to our early testers, so there's always a new scene for you to come back and play.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Beat.School currently provides access to 3 gigs and over a dozen photo-realistic gear models, including Pioneer CDJs, Pioneer Mixers, Roland All-in-ones, Technics turntables, and more. Your personal in-game studio is ready for you so you can practice sets and load music off your hard drive onto an in-game memory stick for your gigs.

The in-game lessons have not been released and career mode is not yet enabled, so you cannot learn skills or earn gig money to buy new gear. These features are in development and will be released during Early Access, so you will get a great opportunity to watch from the inside as this game grows.”

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

“During Early Access, the game is being made available at 60% off the planned release price. We're providing it at a discount to encourage you to help us develop this revolutionary DJ Skills Simulator.”

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

“We are asking the DJ community to download Beat.School and help us develop the game by telling us what you think, log feature requests, and report bugs.”
