This demo OST includes several songs from both the main game and [white label], and will be updated alongside each episode. You can also listen to it on the official UNBEATABLE YouTube channel here.

UNBEATABLE: DEMO TAPES will release on Spotify in the future. Those who back the DIGITAL SOUNDTRACK tier on the game’s kickstarter will also receive keys for DEMO TAPES following the campaign.

[white label] Release Schedule

The next episode, SIDE A TRACK 2, will release at an unannounced date. All episodes of [white label] will still be released for free on Steam and Itch. More information will be revealed about the next episode in the coming weeks.

ACCESSIBILITY

[white label] features an ASSIST MODE that allows players to use AUTOPLAY. With AUTOPLAY on, Beat will automatically hit notes that the player doesn’t hit themselves, allowing for anyone to groove to the songs and experience our narrative. Options to toggle off the VHS Filter, reduce camera motion, dim the background, and disable post-processing are available as well. 

Custom Keybinds/Controller bindings will be present in a later update. ASSIST MODE will include more options in the final game, such as configurable health and damage modifiers. The ability to adjust scroll speed, change game offset, and enable “NO FAIL” are present in this new version.

ABOUT UNBEATABLE

UNBEATABLE is a narrative adventure game with rhythm action mechanics where music is illegal and you do crimes.

The game launched on Kickstarter on April 6th (and ended on May 7th), raising over $267,402 from backers around the world. The game reached its funding goal in the first 15 hours of its campaign, meeting its first three stretch goals, online leaderboards, custom beatmap support, and additional remixes.

FEATURES

      • Explore a strange world with terrible people and a progressive day-and-night cycle all while doing whatever you please – whether that be helping others, practicing with your band, or sleeping in.
      • Vibrant anime-esque aesthetic incorporating lots, and lots, and lots of hand-drawn animation.
      • Simple yet challenging rhythm mechanics that drive a significant part of the game and storyline.
      • Endlessly replayable arcade mode for anyone who Craves the Scores.
      • Accessibility options broad enough to allow anybody, even those intimidated by rhythm games, to play through the story (and maybe even like the rhythm game part too…maybe…)
      • A feature list that is an unmitigated success at turning a complicated piece of artistic expression into a series of easily-reducible bullet points.

ABOUT D-CELL GAMES

D-CELL GAMES is a remotely operated studio that believes that the best way to make something that actually works as a crowd pleaser is to make the crowd hate you before winning them back. They don’t seek to only imitate the things we love; they want to understand them. UNBEATABLE, a narratively-driven rhythm game, is their first project.
