Jam Live Music Arcade, a collaboration between Zivix and Reverb Publishing, is scheduled for release on both Xbox LIVE Arcade and the PlayStation Network during the week of May 16. The game will take a sandbox approach, allowing players to create remixes of popular licensed songs, individually tweaking guitar, bass, drums, synth, and vocals. As a bonus, an Arcade Challenge Mode will be incorporated, featuring more conventional rhythm game mechanics.
Guitar peripherals, most notably the ones from both the Guitar Hero and Rock Band series, will be compatible with the game.
More details can be found in the following press release:
JAM Live Music Arcade is a completely new approach to the music genre with a real-time live music sandbox “JAM Mode” that allows the player to immediately build and customize their very own tunes, as well as a bonus “Arcade Challenge Mode” that plays similar to traditional music games. Starting with any one of the 30+ licensed songs featured in the game (including hits from Modest Mouse, Fallout Boy, Fatboy Slim, Owl City, Rise Against, Atmosphere and more), players jam with and remix all aspects of the song – guitar, bass, drums, synth and vocals – to experiment with the song and re-create it to their own personality. All of this is done with any one of the numerous compatible guitar gaming peripherals – the entire band is in your hands! Accessible and easy to get started, yet deep and almost endless to master, everyone can touch real music across a broad range of sonic tastes. JAM Live Music Arcade offers an immersive level of musical interaction that’s inspiring, powerful and contagious.
JAM Live Music Arcade joins Reverb Publishing’s growing roster of titles, which includes the massively successful Dungeon Defenders, as well as the upcoming Sanctum 2, Primal Carnage, Jeremy McGrath’s Offroad, Black Knight Sword and much more.
