False Claims

March 23, 2009

It’s no secret I love Audiosurf. It’s an indie game and it’s one of my all time favorites. It also happens to be a rhythm game for PC that came out last year. So why does Mevo and Grooveriders think it is the first rhythm game ever on PC?

Don’t get me wrong, the game is great, especially the music, and in a rhythm game that is what counts.  But I was shocked to see that the developers let slide “The first music rhythm game for PC” at the end of the demo. That’s hardly correct. Frets on Fire and Stepmania have been out for ages, Guitar Hero III and Guitar Praise are both on PC, Audiosurf is more than a year old…

So put simply, Red Rocket Games, you are wrong. Are you the first Rhythm Platformer on PC? Possibly, but don’t take my word for it.

A lesson I learned a while ago: If you are going to make a claim, please make sure it is true. If you take the time to do the research, you spare yourself the embarrassment of somebody calling you out on their blog.
