Hellsinger is a rhythm first-person shooter in which firing your guns to the beat makes them more powerful. Despite myself being the biggest fan of heavy metal music, I was thoroughly impressed with it this week. Perhaps it will be added more soon, since it''s developers announced that they''ll support music modding soon.
Developers The Outsiders tweeted the headlines shortly before the game was launched this week:
Let''s calm down the skies.coming soon to PC. Custom Music Modding Support. Unleash Hell. To YOUR beat. pic.twitter.com/eOim4lllwX
"It''s coming soon to PC. Custom Music Modding Support. Unleash Hell. To YOUR beat," said the tweet.
Although I don''t like metal, I did not like Metal: Hellsinger by any stretch. It''s got a beat that allowed me to tap my foot, and it propels the action forward as you scavenge through hallucinations.
Although I''m quite curious how music modding will work, Metal: Hellsinger does not give you a static soundtrack to shoot and load over. The music evolves as you gain more power, adding additional layers, and becomes a complete song with vocals when you maximum your multiplier.
If The Outsiders were to enable actual musicians to stick in their music on separate tracks, I''d be perfectly happy with seeing them stick in any other game if it''s with automatic beat detection. Let me slice through hell to Dave Brubeck. Let the Games Done Quick streamers play on hard mode to John Cage''s 4''33."
