JAM Live Music Arcade is a completely new approach to the music genre with a real-time live music sandbox that allows the player to immediately build and customize their very own tunes. Starting with any one of the 30+ licensed songs featured in the game (including hits from Modest Mouse, Fallout Boy, Fatboy Slim, 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 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.

JAM Live Music Arcade is a part of Reverb Publishing’s growing roster of titles, which includes the massively-successful Dungeon Defenders, as well as the fall 2012 line-up of Ravaged, Primal Carnage, Rocketbirds: Hardboiled Chicken, Cognition: An Erica Reed Thriller, Edge of Space and much more.
