Genre: Puzzle, Strategy

Backbeat is a multilinear time-based puzzle/strategy game set in 1995, built on jam music. Guide aspiring bassist Watts and her friends through over 40 levels of strategic puzzling madness in their pursuit to break free from monotony and achieve stardom. Use spatial rules of music making to slide your way past surly shift managers, suspicious security guards, and sticky-fingered children while playing gigs and winning fans. Over time you'll unlock new music, tricks, and stylish locales drenched in desaturated 1990s American suburbia.

Platform: PC
