Good things just seem to keep coming to Project Heartbeat. Last month the game got an audio engine overhaul. Now we’ve got a UI skin editor, with Steam workshop integration. You can use your own textures and fonts. Even animated textures are supported. Apparently a health system has been incorporated as well. Meaning if you miss too many beats, game over. Since this is a beta, you’ll need to opt-in to the beta branch in the game’s properties menu.
Project Heartbeat – a rhythm-based game available natively for Linux – recently received an update that, according to the developer, is “the single biggest update in terms of technical stuff we’ve done since the game was released over two years ago in March 26th 2020.” First, a new song was added: “Love Sacrifice”. Next – and what is probably the biggest change – is a brand new audio engine has been incorporated into the game, called the Shinobu audio engine.
