Holodance is a Virtual Reality rhythm game that is currently being developed by narayana games. Its build-in music is composed and produced specifically for this VR experience using binaural audio. Holodance also supports loading osu! beatmaps which gives players access to almost 12,000 perfectly beatmapped songs, some with varying difficulties for an overall 45,000+ beatmaps. The 14+ environments you can play in are designed to perfectly match the sound to give you: A spatial, rhythmic, audio-visual experience of pure ecstatic joy! Think of Holodance as a music video that you can enter and play with. But it's not just a 2D video - it's an actual reality that touches hearing and seeing and hopefully your heart! The game has both a free-mode (just a pure rhythm game) and a story-mode (in development) where a group of dragons returns to planet Earth to find out: Are you ready to write a new history for the future?

Munich, Germany, December 26, 2017: Virtual Reality rhythm game Holodance has just received a new mode that lets players experience all of the game's environments in a very different kind of visual appearance: As a Christmas present to its players, Psychedelic Mode has been added to the game just today.

Psychedelic Mode is activated via the game's settings under Style / Psychedelic Settings. There are currently Color Effects, Time Dilation and Strobe Lights, each with a few options to adapt the effects the player's likes.

Color Effects first links the current combo with the saturation: Before the player catches the first orb, it's all black and white. Then, gradually, with each orb that is caught without missing one, the game goes over normal into a fairly over-saturated look until players has caught 48 orbs, which also gives them the 4x combo multiplier. This event is combined with Time Dilation, causing the game to go into a bullet time like state for the player to catch the important orb. Right after that, the Strobe Lights flash for a few seconds.

And this is where the real psychedelic experience starts: Now, each orb that is caught shifts the hue a little bit, completely mixing up the colors. Depending on the environment, this effect can be kind of subtle, mostly just changing the colors of the orbs a little bit - or really dramatic.

When players keep catching every orb, successfully tracing every Slider and spinning every Spinner, eventually a Long Combo is achieved - and now that color cycling moves on its own.

Finally, players that master any one of the almost 60,000 beatmaps for almost 12,000 songs and not miss a single orb will get to the final bullet time slow down so the can finish that last note with their coolest move.

While the Holodance Avatar system is just an option for players that want to use it for creating videos, it certainly helps make gameplay videos more entertaining.
