GDC 2013 - Something a little different here, with Trace stopping by German indie developer Threaks, to check out their game Beatbuddy. Beatbuddy is different to anything I've seen before - the goal of the game to work your way through a song.

You might be battling against bassdrums, or a huge chorus, with the musical structure of each song is represented in the actual game world itself. The game itself is turned into an interactive journey through music. You can see from the video above that it is just that - a game world created, and thriving with music.

Threaks have been developing Beatbuddy for three years now, and have three months left until it is released into gamers hands, or is that ears?
