Developer: Hyperbolic Magnetism

Genres: Music, Action

Beat Saber is a unique VR rhythm game where your goal is to slash the beats (represented by small cubes) as they are coming at you. Every beat indicates which saber you need to use and also the direction you need to match. All the music is composed to perfectly fit the hand made levels. Our goal is to make players almost dance while cutting the cubes and avoiding obstacles. Each cut is strongly supported by great sound and visual effects to emphasize the rhythm.

FEATURES
Unique gameplay with a great feel - Beat Saber combines the satisfying feeling of cutting with emergent perception of rhythm.

Handcrafted levels & music - All the basic levels and music in the game will be handcrafted to emphasise the music rhythm. The results are incomparable to similar games with generated content.

Game accessibility - Anyone can understand basic game principles and play the game in just a few seconds.

Imaginative use of VR to make one of the best new music games of the generation, and which also manages to be the best Star Wars game never made.

Beat Saber is a blast, and one of the best experiences you can have in virtual reality. You truly feel like a musical samurai (even if you look silly to everyone watching)

Beat Saber is a rhythm game that's both simple and fun. Unfortunately, its soundtrack is very limited at the moment.
