Note: This is known to run poorly in Firefox. I would suggest playing in Chrome instead. Games may sometimes have the audio heavily desync with the game in Firefox. There is nothing that I can do about this unfortunately.

This game took me about a month to make, and it's my very first game, ever. I'm so happy that this is finally finished. Thank you for playing!

Huge thanks to @codl for making the script that allows for remappable controls. You can find that script here.

Thank you to @DesignInVan for coming up with the algorithm for making the pretty backgrounds, and letting me use it in my game.

Big thanks to everyone who has helped playtest this game and offer feedback and advice during its development.

Getting all of this together was a huge challenge, especially in regards to making everything fit, but it was a really great learning experience and I enjoyed figuring out how to make everything work in an elegant way.

Thank you for playing! Hope to see you again soon!

Why aren't the controls D F J K ;-;

You can remap your controls if you'd like, in the bottom right corner of the game is an option for that.

how do I choose the song and start playing?

EDIT: Scratch that - re:i'm dumb


You might want to make the game more lenient with allowing hits. There have been several times that I have died and the arrow was exactly where it was supposed to be, meaning that the game simply wasn't registering the input. Once you provide a slightly larger time frame in which to hit the note, it will make the game much more playable. Other than that, it's great!

I almost can't believe this was made in PICO-8. Very great showing.

This is a super impressive demake! Since it's quite challenging, I'd like more feedback when I get a good hit (e.g. the target area turns yellow or something) but wow the visuals and the audio are both really fantastic, so many little details are just right.
