The Metronomicon: Slay the Dance Floor was released on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One August 30th, 2017. Differing from the desktop release, this edition added a co-op feature as well as Endless Mode where the playlist never stops as you battle against enemies.
The Metronomicon: Slay the Dance Floor combines Rhythm and RPG elements and was developed by Puuba and published by Akupara Games. I worked on Producer with both companies during all stages of the project, from development to publishing on PS4 and Xbox One.
The Metronomicon – Slay the Dance Floor has just been announced for PlayStation 4, and Xbox One! Even better news – my studio Akupara Games will be the publisher. I’m incredibly excited to be working with The Metronomicon even further. We feel the project still has a lot of potential, and wanted to widen the audience even further.
Slay the Dance Floor adds a ton of new content, including the highly requested co-operative gameplay. Co-op is available in every game mode – so play with your buddy through story, challenges, and free play. We’re also adding a brand new unlockable character, and an entirely new game mode, yet to be revealed.
The player controls a full party of heroes such as a Warrior, Mage, and Cleric, but their spells and attacks are activated by chaining together notes like you would in rhythm games like Dance Dance Revolution and Guitar Hero. Each hero has their own lane of music, and the player can switch between lanes at any time to select the hero they want to attack with.

The Metronomicon is a rhythm combat game which I’ve been producing for the past year with the LA based studio Puuba (previously I worked on The Weaponographist with them). The game’s been picked up by publisher Kasedo Games, and will be coming to Steam (PC/Mac) in 2016.
The game features a full 50 song soundtrack with incredible bands, including an exclusive track from Jimmy Urine of Mindless Self Indulgence, an unreleased track from Shiny Toy Guns, along with tracks from YACHT, Perturbator, J-Punch, Dj CUTMAN, and many, many more.
The Weaponographist, a wonderful and magical game that I worked on with Puuba just came out on Steam today! Play as jerky jerk hero Doug McGrave and kill ridiculous baddies like a cyborg T-Rex, demon gangsters, and unicorns. If you like rouge-likes, weapon collecting, and fast paced action then check this out!
I’m working on a new game with my buddies at Puuba, The Weaponographist. The Weaponographist is a high-speed, dangerous dungeon-crawler starring Doug McGrave; famous demon hunting bad boy for hire. For refusing to help a poor town plagued by demons, you are immediately- and deservedly- cursed.
I’m incredibly excited to be working with such a talented team on this project. Stay tuned for more information, and check out this sweet announcement trailer.
