[Indie Spotlight] Rhythm game, date sim, and visual novel? | Impressions - Concerto on White (Demo)

1K View2023-09-23
Concerto on White consists of two main ideas blended into one harmonious composition. The school academy life, and actual rhythm game gameplay. The school academy life is where you can attend classes, interact with your schoolmates, and practice music, all presented in a chapter-style visual novel storytelling.

The rhythm game segments are accessible as also part of the story chapters and during free-play mode. The rhythm game mechanics are quite novel in its design and concept, fun and engaging too. Your left hand is constantly adjusting the keys up and down while your right is hitting the correct notes at the right time. The whole mechanic is quite confusing at the start, and I needed a second run of the tutorials to finally get it. Once it clicks though, it’s as easy as any other rhythm game. There are a few musical pieces available to try in free mode, including the ever popular Canon in D. The game plans to include more pieces and an editor as well.

As for the actual story, it starts off with your character as a newly accepted — rejected rather — applicant of a prestigious musical university. But somehow this decision gets mysteriously overturned and you find yourself still enrolled. It’s our first day, and we meet the professor and his teaching assistant for our first music class. Of course, part of the gameplay is experiencing slice-of-life-esque adventurous campus life in this prestigious music academy, and I’m also seeing traces of date sim elements, especially with the female characters. However, the game isn’t a slice-of-life experience as it may seem, as it plunges the player into an intriguing larger-than-life mystery early on.

The story is actually intriguing and got me hooked early on, and it got me excited into seeing what comes next after the demo ended.

Concerto on White Devlog: A Symphony of Passion and Dreams
Hello to all music and game enthusiasts, Senk here. As the hype for Indie Spotlight launches, I wanted to pause and dive into the heartbeats and melodies that shaped this project. Rethinking Rhythm Games Lately, I've noticed many rhythm games narrowing down the vast world of music to just its beat. With my background deeply rooted in East Asian music, I've always held the melody in high regard. Watching the market streamline and simplify music this way felt off-key. So, back in 2016, an idea formed: a game that brings together rhythm and pitch, painting a full musical picture. Enter, Concerto on White. Instead of just tapping to the rhythm, you play the actual melody, mimicking the mechanics of a violin or guitar. For those familiar with rhythm games, this is pure melody immersion!
