Description

Finger Band is a beat matching memory game, for fans of 'one more go' type games. The player must LISTEN to a sequence of beats, RECALL that sequence and then REPEAT it back, keeping it in time for additional bonuses. New elements are thrown in as play progresses so everyone should be able to feel challenged and find their level. Unique concotions of items (i.e. a Cricket Bat hitting a Trampoline) are driven by the on screen button presses to create a more tactile and engaging experience. Although there are items to unlock, new modes to uncover and high-scores targets to reach, the aim has been to not over indulge in such things, and make it a more focused experience for the player. They will never feel like they have to over-work for rewards and will instead progress based solely on their skill level (and how much training they put in). A key part of this game requires you to use your ears, so headphones (although not necessary) will enhance the experience and give you that bit of an advantage.

History

Originally started as a break project from the more experiential game Flights Of Fancy, the initial concept has been fleshed out into 5 full stages, representing a complete experience all of its own. It was built on a love of audio driven design, where your ears are just as valuable to you as your eyes and in-fact aids those players who are willing to use them. Various other game modes and ways of playing were discovered during development and plans are afoot to flesh them out, updating this game or creating a spin-off with a more minimalistic and less graphically reliant approach in the near future.

Features

  • A test of both MEMORY and RHYTHM in a fun and engaging way.
  • Hand crafted visual style, combining; cartoons, comics, and Jazz poster art.
  • Audio driven design, from gameplay to the individuality of the stages.
  • Addictive and challenging, requring both patience and a willingness to improve.
  • A complete bespoke experience, something people can immerse themselves in but not feel overwhelmed by.
