About This Game


Backbeat is a multilinear time-based puzzle/strategy set in 1995, 
built on jam music.

Guide aspiring bassist Watts and her friends through over 40 levels of strategic puzzling madness in their pursuit to break free from monotony and achieve stardom. Use spatial rules of music making to slide your way past surly shift managers, suspicious security guards, and sticky-fingered children while playing gigs and winning fans. Over time you'll unlock new music, tricks, and stylish locales drenched in desaturated 1990s American suburbia.


  • Rewindable, multilinear time-based environment puzzles
  • Player-controlled songs created from your movement choices
  • Real life jam band music rules and tricks for maximizing your score
  • Character-driven story set in 1990s suburban America



Stephanie "Watts" Watson bounced from audition to audition never finding music that really resonated with her, that is, until she discovered the magic of funk. Caught up in the groove, she recruits a group of hometown amateurs to take on art school darlings La Tormenta at the Battle of the Bands.


Join Watts as she grows on a musical journey rooted in funk and fusion. Soulful grooves, hot licks, and live recorded instruments build a cooking foundation of musical clips assembled directly from your choices in the game. Customize your performance with audio effect pedals, playing styles, and instruments swaps, then share your puzzle solutions directly from the game when the level replays in realtime upon level completion.
