Description

Size DOES Matter is a 2.5D side-scrolling arcade rhythm game. It focuses on high-paced action, timing and clear, strong audiovisual feedback. The target audience are players in the age range of 12-25, both male and female, who like bit-art and retro style games that challenge their reaction. The game uses a combination of simple but juicy graphics and well-composed electronic music to deliver a familiar arcade feel to players.

History

Size DOES Matter was initially developed during Dare to be Digital 2013 (Dundee, Scotland) by Team DOS, where it successfully secured development funding and a nomination for the BAFTA Ones To Watch Award. The game is currently in continued development in Norway by the team, now known as DOS Studios. Size DOES Matter is planned for release in Q2 2014.

Features

  • Fast-paced, reaction based gameplay.
  • Sexy, juicy neon graphics.
  • A set of awesome electronic music created by skilled indie composers.

Selected Articles

  • "Firstly, the controls are spot-on for a rhythm-action game. They're simple to pick up but are mentally taxing when required at high speeds. [...] Secondly, the head-bopping collection of independent electronic dance music at the heart of this game is sensational. All told, this is one of my most anticipated music games in development."
    - Peter Willington, Pocketgamer
  • "a fiendishly addictive combination of Tetris and Guitar Hero [...] It's an intense twitch core treat, with an interesting rhythm action element (you have to re-size your shape in time to the music) and lovely, minimalistic visuals."
    - Keith Stuart, The Guardian
