Zivix Invites Wii Owners to JustJam&Feel The Groove This Summer

Minneapolis, Minnesota– June 30, 2011– Zivix Interactive and Big John Games announced today JustJam , their upcoming music creation/rhythm-video game hybrid coming as a digital download for the Wii™. Available for download on the Wiiware™ service July 7, JustJam is an all new type of freeform rhythm game that lets players create their own musical mix across top genres including pop, rock, techno, alternative and hip hop tracks.

JustJam for WiiWare lets you be the band, mix and remix live music instantly. With your Wii Remote™, you can control 16 live jams featuring hundreds of exciting music tracks and sounds. Anyone can pick up and play music using two unique play styles that make it fun and easy to mix music live. Jam with music featuring your favorite genres and cool artists throughout six creative visual venues, as you score points and unlock content as you go.

“Many popular music-based games have lost their groove, but we continue to see a new breed of music gaming emerge, with dancing and singing features bringing more players back into the fold.” said Chad Koehler, Vice President of Zivix.“JustJam provides a completely new approach that brings the player even closer to the music where they can truly interact with the music, not just listen.”

JustJam was created to get everyone immediately playing with live music. There is nothing quite like JustJam ; at the snap of the Wii Remote you launch into a guitar riff, a drum beat, or maybe some sound effects and vocals. Perform in the living room and show off your skills or simply kick back and relax to millions of musical combinations!
