The company Threaks, responsible for the entertaining underwater rhythm game, Beatbuddy were also at Gamescom 2016 and took a little time to talk to us about recent developments in their games.
Awakened from his slumber, Beatbuddy journeys through lush hand-painted environments on a quest to save his companions and his own immortality. Beatbuddy interacts with the living breathing environment that pulses to the beat of an original soundtrack, aiding him as he unlocks new paths and solves puzzles. Beatbuddy Ultimate Edition includes the main game with Beatbuddy: On Tour as well soundtracks from two games.
Sebastian Bulas told us that they are helping with the organizing of the Indie Arena Booth and that they are also organizing Game Jams here and there, now and then. They have a little booth at Gamescom 2016 though in order to showcase their new Beatbuddy Ultimate Edition. What that basically is, is a package that includes all the awesome stuff they’ve done before with Beatbuddy. They are also showcasing their PlayStation 4 edition of the game, which will hopefully come out this year.
Regarding their new project (which they showed last year at GC2015) they did not find any funding for it but instead received funding from the EU for another concept which is an adventure-like game that explores time-travel. So even though they had to leave their old project, they will focused on the new one now.
