Wait, what's a chord? Can it even be safe? Is it even a physical thing? If not, how can a person drop one? Who knows! It's not like it matters anyway since you don't need a degree in musicology or whatever to play Double Fine's upcoming release Dropchord. It's a music and rhythm game that has you placing your fingers on glowing spheres and rotating the beam of light that emits from that connection around a circular track. The goal is to put your beam through other spheres while avoiding obstacles that interrupt the beam. The longer you go without a mistake, the higher your score. Of course, pulse-pounding music plays in the background, appearing to dictate the flow of the game.
It's a fun little release, and one that has been seen one another platform. This game was originally designed to be used with the Leap Motion controller on the PC. Despite this, it ends up playing pretty intuitively on FingerPad devices. You just place your fingers on either side of the circle and go. Video below:
You can catch this when it drops later tonight at 11:00PM. Speaking of that, we can't help but note how distressing it is that we've yet to experience any dubstep in this. Fingers crossed that we'll bump into some as we keep playing.
