“We’ve loved working on the innovations within this game. The way the lighting animations react to the audio makes this such an immersive experience for the player as it feels like they’re actually at the gig. Getting the animations to react to the audio within the game has been a real achievement and we haven’t seen it that much in the industry, so far.”
