Just Mac & Linux Support

OH HAI THAR

We quietly pushed Mac & Linux builds earlier this week, it seems to work well enough so we're making it official!

Players who purchased the game for PC can now also play on Mac and Linux machines without running some makeshift hack dark wizardry, saves should carry too, so that's a thing!

On the subject of cloud saves, this update changes the way save data is managed, so to make sure everything goes smoothly, run the game after the update FIRST on the computer where you have the most progress. That save will then become your cloud save, everything will be awesome with unicorns and rainbows*.

If anything goes wrong, just send us an email at troublemakeitdouble@justshapesandbeats.com or join our discord community, and we'll get you all patched up in no time!



*no unicorns or rainbows will appears, this is only a figure of speech. Dunno why I felt the need to specify as I'm sure you are smart enough to not expect rainbows or unicorns, but these days you never know.

“Just Shapes & Beats is a magical hybrid between a bullet hell shoot-'em-up and rhythm game.”
Alissa McAloon, Destructoid

“Just Shapes & Beats is as intense as any bullet hell game [...] But it's one that's easy to get into, not just because of the simple control scheme and the growing desire to escape alive, but because of the catchy soundtrack.”
Ozzie Mejia, ShackNews

“Just Shapes and Beats is a mesmerizing rhythm game with an exceedingly simple idea.”
Neal Ronaghan, Nintendo World Report

About This Game



"Just Shapes & Beats" is a chaotic co-op musical bullet-hell based on three simple things: avoid Shapes, move to the kick-ass Beats, and die, repeatedly. It’s a new spin on the SHMUP genre, adding a layer of cooperation that’s at the core of the game: because everything is better with friends. Play alone or with up to four players, local or online, through the game’s Story Mode or Challenge Runs.



You like music? SO. DO. WE. That's why we have 35 hand crafted stages with licensed tracks from over 20 chiptune and EDM artists.

Hits like a ton of brick straight into your eardrums and your eyeballs; BAM.




Gather up your squad and play up to 4 player co-op, drop-in drop-out, either all on your couch for a house party, or an online party!

Don't have/like your friends? WE GOTCHU MY DUDES, make new or BETTER friends by playing a few quick online challenge runs. Let us pick your new best buds for the next hours; strangers are just friends you haven't met yet.

Kind of a lone wolf, back hurts from carrying people, would rather play with yourself? Do it, the game is just as fun, just a different experience waiting for you; ain't nobody judging here yo.




We have many different game experiences to offer! Story mode helps you learn the ropes with our intermediate-ish tracks and the optional Casual mode. When you think you’re ready, Challenge Runs is where you get to prove yourself: get judged on your skills by playing through randomly picked tracks.

Need some kind of training montage to get better? Rip off your sleeves and practice the tracks you’re struggling to master in the Playlist.




Literally the soundtrack for your party! Let the game play in Party Mode and light up your social gatherings, + you can even have people playing those cool party stages while the music plays if they're into that, because WE'VE THOUGHT ABOUT EVERYTHING.

So yea, go ahead and throw the most epic party of your life thanks to us, you are welcome.
