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.
I’ve done it again, I’ve started another game studio. The studio is called Akupara Games.
Back when I started Night Light Interactive in 2012, I was a recent college grad, and looking to mainly create a portfolio piece to help launch my career in games. It was an incredible learning experience, and built the foundation of my knowledge in development and publishing.
Several years later I’m starting a new studio for completely different reasons. Over the past seven years I have created a lot of games. I have had a lot of successes, and a lot of failures. There are so many things I wish I had known when I had been creating games.
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.
