    A different, more approachable form of rhythm game with a 70s back-drop and a style to behold. An interpretive experience suited for the rhythm-curious and the niche enthusiast alike.

    Despite its brevity, A Musical Story is a game that will stick with you long after you’ve completed it. Its sumptuous artwork, simple yet incredibly emotive, will leave a lasting impression, though not as much as the fantastic soundtrack, which will pulse through your head long after you’ve turned it off. Combining a narrative driven experience with engaging rhythm-led gameplay, the result is something rather special, unlike anything you’ll have played before.

    A Musical Story mixes the whole 'indie game about feelings' thing with some good, intuitive rhythm-action gameplay and a surprisingly good soundtrack. It might not appeal to the hardcore rhythm-action fans out there but it has enough heart to find itself an audience that won't forget it in a hurry.

    What the game ultimately delivers is a charming, unique debut title from a studio we’re certainly interested to see more of.

    While it looks cool, and the music is outstanding, there’s not enough here to keep players chugging along for too long.

    Featuring a gorgeous soundtrack and sumptuous visuals, A Musical Story certainly has everything going for it, but the experience as a whole feels as hollow as an acoustic guitar that was played once and never picked up again. Once it’s done, it’s done. And you won’t feel the need to return.

    Such a beautiful experience. This rhythm based game takes a new approach to the genre by actually forcing the player to understand the tempoSuch a beautiful experience. This rhythm based game takes a new approach to the genre by actually forcing the player to understand the tempo of the music instead of being told through a direct visual aid when to click (rock band, guitar hero). It’s not that hard though since there is no penalty to messing up and the game will kick in and help you if you miss too many notes. Tells a unique story with stunning visuals that I highly recommend! Expand
