Kasedo Games Announces Rhythm
RPG The Metronomicon
Fast-paced Rhythm RPG mixes beats with “beat downs” on Windows and Mac
Leicester, UK, 30th March, 2016 – Kasedo Games and Puuba are proud to announce the exciting new rhythm-based RPG The Metronomicon. This exhilirating fusion of two beloved genres combines the strategy and story-led gameplay of an RPG with the fast paced button tapping action of a rhythm game – all presented with a superb soundtrack featuring an eclectic mix of artists.
Packing in a fully-fledged story mode with a colourful cast of musically-empowered heroes and villains, The Metronomicon sees you take control a party of eight newly graduated masters of the “rhythmic combat arts” to wage musical warfare against a multitude of dance-mongering fiends. By switching between four concurrent hero-controlled tracks on-the-fly, you’ll select and activate a wide array of abilities, spells, buffs and nukes, with your performance and timing all-important in ensuring the effectiveness of your moves. In true RPG spirit, you’ll need to improve your characters’ stats, hunt down powerful equipment, and combine a multitude of abilities – switching between tanking, healing, buffing, and damage-dealing classes as required, in real time.
The Metronomicon features a fantastic, fully-licensed soundtrack featuring some of the hottest electronic, synthwave, chiptune and indie artists, including an exclusive track from Jimmy Urine of Mindless Self Indulgence, and an unreleased track from Shiny Toy Guns, along with tracks from YACHT, Perturbator, J-Punch, DJ CUTMAN, and many, many more. As much a soundscape as it is a soundtrack, the music behind The Metronomicon is set to be every bit as varied and exciting as the gameplay itself.
Unique Rhythm RPG – slay fearsome beasts to an even fiercer beat
An epic quest - A wide range of characters, with locations ranging from a medieval party yacht to a rockstar-haunted castle – and many more!

Puuba is a small Los Angeles based indie studio founded in 2013 to create hard-to-pronounce, hard-to-explain and ridiculous games that they’d really like to play. Their first game, Concursion, released in 2014, was a multiversal mashup of five genres at once into a platformer at heart. Last year, in 2015, they released The Weaponographist, a speed-running top-down dungeon crawler starring an absolute butthead of a hero. Lead developer Danny Garfield has previously done post-production for Hollywood movie thangs, where he wrote a lot of code for a lot of awesome flicks. He rarely misses a comic shop Wednesday. http://puuba.com.
