Crim, a brash and nomadic fiend slayer, has no time for music, dance, or art. That is, until she offends the wrong necromancer raising the roofs of the undead.

Now, cursed with the insatiable need to dance, Crim and her jubilant goblin partner Gleam will have to use all of their newly found moves to slay their way through the crowds of monsters across the stereophonic lands.

A music-driven rhythm brawler that demands timing, speed, and a clever mind in the heat of battle to slay your enemies before time runs out.

This Project Is Incomplete!

Alas, The Choreographist was a beautiful idea in search of a beautiful someone to fund it. And didn't.

As such, this game is being released AS-IS and incomplete. At the moment, the game is gameplay-feature-complete, including all story elements, all enemy and (nearly 20!) boss behaviors, and all game modes (Story, Freeplay, Roguelike, Pure, Puzzles, Daily). It is a truly meaty experience, taking a couple days to play through once.

However, this game only has about 10% of its art complete. Oh, and only three songs to play (placeholding for fifty), despite it being a rhythm game.

On the bright side, there's lots of dev commentary to help you through!

Still Not Sure?

Have you considered Early Access on Steam? Maybe with the note that the game won't be completed unless it does super well or something? Even with like a $3 price tag or something?

I'd love to, but I honestly fear that the gap in the amount of cash we need is too severe for that approach. 

While I'm SUUUPER tempted to put the game onto Steam for the addition of leaderboards alone (and don't promise that I never will), I'm also a bit afraid of attracting negative reviews for an unfinished product to both our developer and publisher accounts, where other games are selling full retail.

Sure, but just make sure you highlight that fact in the description and information. Also, having a super low price point like $3 to $5 should get people to understand that?

Maybe! I do looove to build, so I can't say no to anything, really!

The Metronomicon is one of my favourite games, and this seems like an awesome new take on the rhythm/RPG gameplay. The fact that this is incomplete and lacking content just seems like a huge waste. I really hope this gets funded and revived someday.
