JAM Live Music Arcade is Available Now On XBLA

Xbox 360

Toss out everything you know about music games and get stoked for something completely fresh. Zivix LLC and has created a suite of music manipulation and improvisation with JAM Live Music Arcade, available now on Xbox LIVE Arcade for 800 Microsoft Points.

Published by Reverb Publishing and 505 Games, JAM Live Music Arcade sets itself apart from the rest by taking 32 songs from artists across a wide variety of styles and allows users to remake them on the fly. Reimaging the work of Owl City, Modest Mouse, Atmosphere and more, JAM Live Music Arcade is meant to be a truly different experience.

JAM Live Music Arcade is a completely new approach to the music genre with a real-time live music sandbox “JAM Mode” that allows the player to immediately build and customize their very own tunes, as well as a bonus “Arcade Challenge Mode” that plays similar to traditional music games. Starting with any one of the 30+ licensed songs featured in the game (including hits from Modest Mouse, Fallout Boy, Fatboy Slim, Owl City, Rise Against, Atmosphere and more), players jam with and remix all aspects of the song – guitar, bass, drums, synth and vocals – to experiment with the song and re-create it to their own personality. All of this is done with any one of the numerous compatible guitar gaming peripherals – the entire band is in your hands! Accessible and easy to get started, yet deep and almost endless to master, everyone can touch real music across a broad range of sonic tastes. JAM Live Music Arcade offers an immersive level of musical interaction that’s inspiring, powerful and contagious.
