About this project
::::::::::::::: Music feature impacting game play :::::::::::::::
Here's a quick showcase of how some on-scren traps will be deploying in time with your MP3s. Here you can see the beat affecting these spikes as they come out of a wall. Entire levels are being built with features like this in action on screen.

What kinds of additional content will Rush Bros. be seeing? Here's a list of a few items we have planned!
The Rush Bros. Hardcore Album:
Soon after launch we will update Rush Bros. through Steam to include an additional pack of 30 new tracks to race on including new art, traps, and surprises! The level pack will be designed to be as difficult and challenging as possible, utilizing all of the most evil ideas we came up with during level designs which we deemed "too hard" to include in the original set of 30 stages the game will launch with.
The Co-Op Album:
This is a set of 10 tracks featuring a brand new game mode! Both brothers will be armed with LASER SWORDS which they can swing up or down (one button switches the sword holding mode and swings it) As an alternative if they press the "slide" button they throw their sword- but if the other brother intercepts it with a well timed swing you'll be left disarmed and helpless! Each time you are defeated you spawn in front of your enemy- so the game plays out like a game of tug-of-war mixed with a more hard-core style of rock paper scissors. We'll show you some sprites and concept art planned for standoff mode in a future update!
::::::::::::::: ORIGINAL POST:
With your support, we’ll be able to publish Rush Bros. on PC & Mac + other consoles & platforms in the future!
XYLA Entertainment is raising funds to complete development. This funding will, specifically, cover the costs needed for the development of online Multi-player features which will allow users to compete against each other over the web in real time. We already have a crack-team of industry veterans, engineers, and artists in place and the funds will be used to cover their services, the cost of multi-player integration tools, and the remaining hardware that we need to launch the game. We want our users to have the best experience possible online, offline, or during single player and with your help we can deliver a game which will allow you to have a unique music-driven experience unlike anything you've had before!
We have spent over a year developing Rush Bros. so that you and your friends (or enemies or frienemies) can engage each other in high speed races across a variety of fun stages employing four differint types of gameplay- all of which will synchronize with the beats of your own MP3 collection in real time! No loading or track analysis! You can even change songs during play if you don't like the current beat and how it's affecting the game. You play the game your way!
The 30 Stages include:
Exploration Tracks (easy-going, story-Driven, and ambient), Puzzle Tracks (real brain teasers), Combat Tracks (filled with puzzles, traps, and power-ups to use against your opponent) and Hardcore Tracks (which are intentionally designed to be as difficult as possible and leave you feeling like you are your own worst enemy!)
• Your Music, Your Choice of Colors & Your own Rules (You come first!)
• Your Music Selection Impacts Game Visuals and Game Play Elements
• Tons of Traps & Obstacles Deploy to the Beat of Your Music!
• Intuitive Platforming Controls (That Anyone Can Pick Up and Play!)

We hope you're as excited as we are about the release of Rush Bros. Coming Soon To PC & Mac!
More Screenshots coming soon!
We're planning for PC & Mac versions at launch.
We're excited to launch Rush Bros to other core platforms like Linux & OUYA. However, we will only be able to do this after our original launch for PC & Mac. Hence, we need your support to get us there for our first launch.
We're planning for Q1 2013. However, with your support we will be able to launch even faster.
Absolutely. Rush Bros. will be available on steam and other DRM free digital distribution channels.
Rush Bros. is a unique platforming game which uses your MP3 collection as an integral part of the overal experience. Your music directly influence how the levels move, look, and feel. The entire world revolves around your music.
Yes. We're proud to say we're the first Platforming & the first Multiplayer game to do this and the way we are doing this by analyzing the beat of the song in a way that's never before been seen in a game of this kind.
