Oh hey! We’re sick, and might not make it to Loscon after all! Our apologies…
Oh, hey! We’ll be in the “Make Room! Make Room!” maker exhibit at Loscon 41 in Los Angeles, California doing demos and stuff this weekend! It is a fun time, so be there!
While we are still working towards a release in Asia, Nintendo has given us a small present in releasing Rhythm Core Alpha and Rhythm Core Alpha 2 ( and many other eShop programs ) in Russia! This is pretty cool, although we never did a Russian translation or anything, so we can only hope they know one of the other five languages it was released in.
Nintendo did a good job remixing our artwork to make nice banners for the Russian version of the site, too. You can check it out here: http://www.nintendo.ru/-/Nintendo-DSiWare/Rhythm-Core-Alpha-2–790663.html
We have applied for a grant from Chase bank’s “Mission Main Street” grant program. This grant will allow us to fund making the cartridge version of Rhythm Core Alpha 2, open an office in Japan to sell there, and purchase development hardware for Rhythm Core Alpha 3!
We just need 250 votes to be considered, so please vote for us!
New demo video! Here is a video of my demo recorded from my appearance at the LA County Science Faire Mini Maker Faire in Pasadena, California last March. It is about 13 minutes and runs through core features, including some of the more advanced ones.
Everything you need to know to get started should be in this video!
It looks like more people bought Rhythm Core Alpha 2 and Rhythm Core Alpha in January than even at the launch of Rhythm Core Alpha 2! This means more people are discovering the joy of making their own music thanks to Rhythm Core Alpha 1 & 2 and we think that is pretty awesome!
Certainly, a lot of people got new 3DS and 2DS systems for Christmas, and that helps a lot! But we have also been demoing like crazy at events like Magfest in National Harbor, Maryland, Frequency 3.0 in Los Angeles, California, and even Sparklecon at 23b Shop in Fullerton! We’ve had fliers out at Anime LA in Los Angeles, and even chatted up some folks at NAMM in Anaheim, California.
Our next stop is Rockage at San Jose State University, followed by Timon Marmex performances at Blacklight District Lounge in Long Beach, CA on February 12th, and Five Star Bar in Downtown Los Angeles on February 19th (right around the corner from where Frequency was!) We’ve planned to be at the LA Science Fair Mini Maker Faire again at the end of March and just applied for the original Bay Area Maker Faire in May. There are a lot more events scheduled as well, so it looks to be a busy year!
We just talked with Eric Fanali from the Rockage event in San Jose and have confirmed that they have a place for us to demo Rhythm Core Alpha 2 and even to sneak in a Timon Marmex performance or two between the bands.
This is very exciting for us! Long ago we did live in the SF bay area for about a year and it always holds a special place in our heart. We know so many awesome chiptune artists up in the bay area and have been honored to share the stage with Slime Girls and Crashfaster as well as many others, so being able to play up there is a big deal for us!
So, San Francisco Bay Area folks be sure to check us out at Rockage 3.0!
Playing live with Rhythm Core Alpha and Rhythm Core Alpha 2 is easy and fun, but having a place to set your DSi or 3DS down during a performance can be tricky sometimes.
Awhile ago we devised a microphone stand for the Nintendo DSi and 3DS that we fabricated ourselves out of metal. Now we have designed a new version to be printed on 3D printers. We’re about to go do a test print and see how it works.
