When I last posted about SHMUSICUP I was under the assumption it would be some kind of downloadable game. Plans are still under way to release it for local play but there’s a free open beta complete with unlockables and achievements that you can play right now in a conveniently located New Tab. Sit through a quick commercial and then you’re free to choose any mp3 you’ve got on a local drive and shoot your way through its sine waves.
Of course, you’ll get much more from pre-ordering the game at its currently discounted rate of $9.95. Access to 4 more bosses, difficulty settings, all three “characters” and Blinding Mode which is guarded by a sizable photo sensitivity warning. The eventual downloadable version comes at no extra charge as well but there’s plenty to play for free right now so give it a shot!
