    Experience Deemo: The Last Recital, a music rhythm game and story of urban fantasy.

    Deemo is a mystic being that lives in solitude in a castle all by itself. His life changes when a little girl who lost her memories, unknowingly falls from the sky, not knowing who she is and where she came from. Deemo comes to realize that whenever he plays the piano, a tree in front of him grows taller and taller. Confident that the tree can grow tall enough to help the little girl reach the sky from where she came from, the two come together to play the piano together. Can Deemo help the little girl regain her memories and help her get back home?

    Flyhigh Works’ second Switch symphony hits all the same highs as the first; Deemo is a fantastic rhythm game, with an incredible soundtrack, fun mechanics, and a surprisingly touching tale to tell. Its lovely art and piano focus give it a unique feel — without at all restricting its musical horizons — and excellent pacing and difficulty options make it accessible and fun for a wide range of skill levels. Music fans shouldn’t miss this — Deemo is a hit.

    Deemo is a very gentle game. Its minimalist aesthetic aims to connect with players emotionally rather than intellectually or physically, and the end effect is akin to sitting down at a piano and playing a favourite song; but not for the benefit of an audience, and not as an examination or other test of musical skill. Sometimes people play music purely for the joy of music, and that’s what Deemo succeeds in tapping into. Sometimes, just sometimes, people play music simply for the joy of it.

    This is easily the best version of the game and a fantastic rhythm game that I’d put alongside Superbeat Xonic which is my favourite one on the platform.

    Deemo excels in every aspect for a game of its genre. On the surface it may seem like any other rhythm game, however its musical accuracy combined with a stellar and diverse song selection makes it an incredibly captivating experience - it even has an emotional story! The premium package will seem a lot to those not into the genre, but it's an easy recommendation for anyone who is.

    If you’re a rhythm action fan and you’ve more or less rinsed VOEZ by now, Deemo is a brilliant successor. Its gentle soundtrack makes it a more laid back rhythm game and while its in-game design is maybe a little too minimalist the music takes centre stage wonderfully.

This game has gotten me into a wider range of music that I would not try or think about if it wasn’t for this game. A one of a kind experience 10/10 Expand

    This game is the best anime rhythm game thus far on the Switch, very well executed and I cannot emphasize how good the songs are. So muchThis game is the best anime rhythm game thus far on the Switch, very well executed and I cannot emphasize how good the songs are. So much variety, not just piano. Over 200 songs and a well paced artistic story will keep you going for hours. Every songs artwork is based off of the mysterious figure named "Deemo" and the little girl whom he encounters, so it's not completely different songs when it comes to the artwork, per se. All in all, the game is better than VOEZ in my opinion, and truly a hidden gem that people should be aware of. Expand

    The song is very good and well made, but there is no reason to enjoy it with the switch.

    This feels like a triple A rhythm game with top notch presentation, original songs and simple but refined gameplay.

    Played the Deemo demo. Most of the notes are not sync with the melody. Not on easy, nor on hard. I have gotten better scores playin it onPlayed the Deemo demo. Most of the notes are not sync with the melody. Not on easy, nor on hard. I have gotten better scores playin it on mute, just looking to the precise time to press the buttons. I cannot enjoy a game, no matter how good visual and story it has, if the main purpose and core, rythm genre, doesn't have decent and polished gameplay. Expand
