Like Tiktok introduced on Vine a new generation co-op rhythm game disaster bandtook the daring spirit of Wii Music and turned it into an insanely dangerous way for up to four people to create Edvard Grieg’s greatest hits. There’s also Steam Workshop support, so you can always write your own future hits to join in. Check out the gameplay trailer below, if you don’t take your ears too seriously.
Disaster Band lets you play to its tune with your mouse or gamepad. You can take on the selection of classical music in the game by duo, trio or quartet. There are four tools for you to do your best or worst. I’m intrigued by the violin, but you might prefer flute, violin or trombone which is always funnier. There are global leaderboards if you’re a high achiever, but you’ll more than likely find me practicing in the Disaster Band practice room.
This seems like an ideal Christmas game, though keep in mind that it’s only for online multiplayer. Just assign your grandpa to play trombone, nana to play flute, brother to play cello and play Straddie yourself. The disaster band doesn’t quite have the instant classic polish champion trombone, but watching some of the grappling stick figures in In The Hall Of The Mountain King made me chuckle on the shortest, darkest day of the year. Round meat pie.
The disaster band has debuted Steam for £6/$7/€7, but currently 30% off. If you decide to form a quarter then just blow the whistle in my direction.
