Indie publisher Digerati is happy to share the news that a free downloadable demo for A Musical Story is now available from the game’s Steam page. Part of the London Games Festival Official Selection for ‘Narrative Excellence’, the demo for A Musical Story has been released to coincide with the start of the event, which runs 19-28 March.
Created by French developer Glee-Cheese Studio, A Musical Story is a music/narrative experience set in the 1970s. The demo consists of the game’s first 10 chapters, and introduces players to its rhythm-based gameplay, which differentiates itself from other music games by focusing on a player’s ability to listen, rather than how well they can follow a visual timeline, when attempting to reproduce a song. Anyone wanting to discover more about A Musical Story will also be able to watch a profile video with Charles Bardin, the game’s designer and co-composer. The short film airs this Saturday, 20 March, at 1PM GMT, and can be watched on the London Games Festival YouTube channel. Full details can be found here: https://festival.games.london/.
