“Someone who comes and opens the window because it already smells closed with the referents we use regularly”
Javier Alemán - Nivel Oculto

Sin Vega - Rock Paper Shotgun

“Mix a compelling rhythm game with the specific cultural imprint of that place and time.”
Joel Couture - Indiegames

About This Game

The game it's like a playable soundtrack inside an old soap opera. It tells a story of love and betrayal in the time of Tango; it does it in 7 chapters and it contains 13 playable songs in total.

About the gameplay

It’s a rhythm game but not a classical one, so don't be scared if you never played a rhythm game before, it’s very casual and you'll pick it up easily. Also there is a Game Mode for the lovers of Classic Rhythm Games, called “Classic mode” (the Hard one).

Culture and Firulete

Made with photographic collages recreating locations of a historical Buenos Aires as well as archetypal characters of the time (1923, Agentina). Also, character animation was made in the style of Monty Python cut out animations.

And also:
  • Special tiles that add something different to rhythm games experience.
  • Normal Mode, a more casual mode for players who have never played rhythm games before.
  • Easy Mode in case you still have trouble keeping up with the rhythm ;)
  • Classic Mode for those who love the difficulty that a rhythm game can offer.
  • Extra Challenges, one for each song in the game.
  • An unforgettable story about love, treason and friendship.
  • And an INCREDIBLE soundtrack!

Music by: The YIRA Orchestra::

It's powerful rocker sound stands out with the languages of its bandoneon, violin and viola of tango miloguero.
