OverviewOverview

Elite Beat Agents is a simple rhythm game that requires you to tap the screen in time with the music to advance a story. Each song matches the pictorial narrative that intersperses each verse: getting a pregnant woman to the hospital; materialising a Christmas gift to a daughter whose father has died; helping working mothers who want more quality time with their children.

These are complex and potentially disturbing scenarios to step into, but the storytelling and music-rhythm implicate our responsibility to these people without this becoming overwhelming. Although these sketches of complex lives are only a few minutes long, our rhythmic interaction with them creates an unexpectedly deep relational connection.
