“I was trying to combine my music and games for quite some time. Then I met the guys from Virtual Fairground who showed me a demo of Pulse”, says Ferry Corsten.“With my experience and their game design skills we have been able to shape Pulse into both a great game and something that makes you feel like a DJ. I can’t wait to see Pulse in the hands of players.“
“We are delighted that Ferry wanted to co-produce this game with us”, says Maarten Brands of Virtual Fairground.“We believe we have been able to create something fantastic together”.

“Music and rhythm action games are always hard to describe in words or to communicate with images, but we are creating something really cool, perfectly tailored to each platform”, continues Brands.“We expect to be able to demo the game to the press at the Game Developers Conference in San Francisco. Pulse really is something you need to experience.”
