Harmonix Releases Music-Based Virtual Pet Simulator, Beatniks

Harmonix and Tilting Point have released a new virtual pet simulator, dubbed simply Beatniks.

The game is, as expected (from Harmonix’s pedigree) music-based, meaning whatever music you use via your phone will directly affect your Beatniks – those goofy looking creatures in the above trailer.

Players will be able to fully customize their Beatniks with a variety of 100+ clothing articles (all based on various musical genres), as well as different mini-games, dance sessions, and more.

You can find Beatniks here on Google Play and here on the App Store.

    I can’t play with any pet simulators anymore. It just hits me too hard when I can’t give them enough gaming time.

    There’s a reason why I don’t name dogs in the first place.

    You can be the biggest greatest thing then a few years latter you can be stuck making mobile garbage for a quick buck. Isn’t the AAA industry wonderful?

    “Harmonix would like to take this opportunity to remind you that normally you should never beat your pets.”
