NOISZ re:||VERSE - Rhythm Bullet Hell Visual Novel expansion

$4,393

91

Humanity is threatened as music becomes corrupted, taking the form of terrifying Noise Beasts. When a mysterious girl grants you the power of the NOISZ, you become the only one capable of stopping these monstrous melodies. But as the dark secret of the NOISZ is revealed, who will you trust, and what will you fight for...?

NOISZ is an unprecedented mix of rhythm game, bullet hell shoot-em-up, and visual novel. Battle a variety of challenging and unique bosses by performing actions to the beat, in order to progress through a massive anime-inspired narrative full of surprising twists and colorful characters!

re:||VERSE is a massive evolution of all the things that already make NOISZ great, which not only brings tons of new content, but also adds huge replay value and depth to existing material.

NOISZ offered several ways to play with its distinct Styles. In re:||VERSE you'll collect Modules which can be used to further customize each Style with a special C skill. Then, enter the Style Lab to put together one of more than 40 Style combinations. Tune the power of the NOISZ to your own preferences to take on the Noise Beasts... and the leaderboards!

HERZ is an overall indicator of your accomplishments as a NOISZ player. Rack up high grades and obtain achievements to increase your HERZ, unlocking secret content and obtaining new borders for your HERZ icon. Prove your skills and show your HERZ off to everyone!

re:||VENGE is an insane new difficulty level designed to brutalize even the most hardcore players, exclusive to re:||VERSE's new stages. Unlock re:||VENGE by clearing stages on Overload and collecting HERZ, then strap in for a bitter battle! This difficulty combines mechanics of regular and Overload gameplay, while crushing you with blistering patterns beyond anything you've seen in NOISZ before!

Things you see before you die.

Risks and challenges

If you've been following NOISZ since the beginning, you know that our initial Kickstarter wasn't successful, and we made the game anyway. NOISZ has the distinction of being a Kickstarter game that was released in a reasonable timeframe (without even actually funding!), as well as a Steam Early Access game that was completed and left the Early Access program. Between that and our previous work on Pump It Up Infinity and NeonFM, we have a pretty solid track record of actually delivering games, and plenty of experience managing and scaling projects realistically.

The biggest difficulty we anticipate (at least, in terms of potential for unexpected problems) is in shipping physical merchandise, so we're keeping maximum quantities of these tiers significantly limited in order to make this manageable.
