'Pulse' Announced

by Rainier on Feb. 25, 2010 @ 5:59 a.m. PST

Virtual Fairground and world famous DJ Ferry Corsten announced that they have teamed up to develop Pulse, a dance themed rhythm game that was the winning concept of the Dutch Global Game Jam in 2009.

“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”.

Ferry Corsten is a worldwide dance phenomenon. Since his emerging on the scene in the late 1990’s, he has amassed best-selling albums, numerous gold singles and countless awards such as ‘Best Producer of the Year’ (Ericsson Music Awards) and ‘Best Trance DJ’ (Ibiza DJ Awards). He has been consistently voted as one of the Top 10 DJs in the world for almost a decade by the authorative DJ Magazine.

“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.”

Pulse will be launched at the Winter Music Conference in Miami Beach, USA. Ferry Corsten has produced 7 new music tracks exclusively for Pulse.
