I've had 2 major passions in life, Video Games and Music. VR seems to be one of the best ways to combine those passions. It feels like something happens when you put on the headset and step into a VR rhythm game. For me it's a place I can dance like no one is watching and I love to really get into the beat or melody of a song. I wanted to create an experience where you could express yourself dancing however you want to a song and then replay it in a way that feels like you're in the middle of an intense VR action game. And so "Defeat the Beat" was born.
Defeat the Beat has 2 main components. Recording and Playing, both done in game in VR. You can search for a song and record your movements to the song. After recording or downloading beat maps you can try for a highscore against the boss as it sends attacks at you in the exact way the song was recorded.
Creating beatmaps are done entirely in VR
Search for any video on YouTube to record to
Use 4 different weapons (Shield, Sword, Blaster, and Bow) to create a beatmap to however the song makes you feel
Currently songs are saved locally and the files do not contain any copyrighted information so they can be shared outside the game legally
Face off against the beat - and try to match the moves of the beatmap's creator
Record your highscore locally
Weapons automatically switch to whatever is needed at the time so you can focus on hitting the beats.
