I finally got around to playing the beta. It's really fun! Really good job setting up the levels in a way that teaches us how each new thing works.
I was glad when I got to the levels with color, cause I was starting to wonder if it would stay black and white (I forgot about seeing color in the kickstarter). Do you think you might add more color? I think it would be cool to have different notes emanate different colors, so as the music rises, you see a rainbow of colors, different for each level. The different sound types could also have a different range of color, so some levels would stick around a narrow range of hues, while another might have a wide range of color. What do you think?
Thanks for the suggestions. We were hoping to theme the colours with the different instruments, so yellow would be the lead synth while red would be bass, green drums and so on. But there's not enough content to really tell that story yet.
Otherwise with the amount of game we still need to make it's unlikely the look is going to change significantly due to more pressing priorities. We will however do more to polish it and make it feel "alive" with the music but I think the way Cadence looks today will be quite recognisable in the final version. We really enjoy hearing your ideas though!
