A call-and-response rhythm game like Space Channel 5 or PaRappa the Rapper, but with zombies!

Start off with the Narrator's tale about a boy who hears a mysterious warning about the moon. Then play rhythm gameplay to guide new heroes Zoe and Dennis against a zombie invasion. Can you help them save the day?

This game is a Rhythm Short, kind of like an animated short.  It's brief, but big on polish, fun, and replay value!  If you're a rhythm game fan, I bet you'll love it!

if i buy this on pc, will i again have to buy it on ios?

Hello! That's correct, if you want it on both platforms you'd have to buy it on both.  Unfortunately, I don't have any way to link purchases across platforms.

That said, if you end up buying on either (or both), I hope you enjoy it!  Cheers!
