FUSER is the latest slice of digital ear candy for the makers of Rock Band and Dance Central. It put players in the role of a festival dJ and the name of the game is mixing and matching and mashing up any number of tunes across a wide range of genres. We went hands-on with it last week and spoke to the Harmonix about living that festival life.
Here's the debut gameplay trailer and a snippet from our preview.
Fuser, from Harmonix, is the veteran studio’s latest music game. With a long rhythm action history that began with Amplitude and Guitar Hero on the PS2, through to the release of Rock Band and Dance Central on the Xbox 360 – and countless other games in between, this is a studio that has always been steeped in music culture. Even in long and impressive discography, Fuser is somewhat of an anomaly.
In Fuser you take on the role of a DJ at a festival, an important setting that is then used as the launch pad to let creativity and choice drive the sort of performance you want to give. Blending elements and samples from a wide range of genres, a bass line from Coldplay, a beat from Armin van Buuren, the vocals from Warren G and Nate Dogg. The result is a festival performance where mash-up, DJ, and electronic music culture all blend into an intoxicating mix of groovy highs and booty shaking lows.
