TRONDHEIM, Norway — Sept. 28, 2022 — Rhythm Sprout: Sick Beats & Bad Sweets, the deliciously silly rhythm game from developer SURT and publisher tinyBuild, slices and dices its way to PlayStation 5|4, Nintendo Switch, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, and PC via Steam and Epic Games in Q1 2023. A brand new Steam Next Fest demo will be available for harvest starting today.
Embark on a scrumptious journey as Sprout, the Chosen Onion, to stop the onslaught of King Sugar Daddy’s Bad Sweets army invading the Vegetable Kingdom and save Princess Cauliflower. Explore eclectic levels, each with its own musical theme from different genres and time periods to groove to.
Step, dodge, and attack to the beat of a chill track in an icy wonderland, or explore a spooky mansion to the tune of a haunting trap beat. Discover colorful new lands and enemies that are as charming as they are sweet, from dastardly ice cream cones to despicable gingerbread people. It’s up to Sprout to stop the nasty treats in their tracks.
Get lost in catchy tunes from the original soundtrack and high-sync beatmaps that provide a refreshing challenge for rhythm game veterans as they master enemy attack patterns and experience new twists while replaying familiar levels. Remix levels with modifiers to add to the challenge and replayability, and unlock sweet skins to customize Sprout’s looks and his weapon.
The all-new expanded Steam Next Fest Demo for Rhythm Sprout features a demo-exclusive story with never-before-seen cutscenes and two brand-new stages: Mansion Dungeons and Daddy’s Club. In addition, all three previously debuted levels, Winter Woods, Fruitopia, and Haunted Mansion have been completely revamped. All stages will be available to try out in all game modes including turbo, mirror, shuffle, and totally random.
“With Rhythm Sprout, our goal has been to deliver a combination of easy-to-understand gameplay with a surprising amount of depth, a light-hearted and self-aware story, and of course, sick beats,” said Jon Vait, CEO at Surt. “We’re so excited for players to meet the colorful cast of characters and vibrant world we have created, and can’t wait to show off more soon.”
Rhythm Sprout: Sick Beats & Bad Sweets debuts on PlayStation 5|4, Nintendo Switch, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, and PC via Steam in Q1 2023. It will support English, Chinese (Simplified), Japanese, Korean, German, Brazilian Portuguese, Russian, Italian, Polish, Norwegian, French, and Spanish (European and LATAM) languages.
