Marshmello is always going a step above and beyond the call of duty — while he could have just released his new album Joytime III in a standard, bland way, he’s giving fans 24 hours to listen to the album before anyone else in his new mobile game titled, Marshmello Music Dance.
The game is released in partnership with Gamejam, a boutique game studio, and The Shalizi Group. The game mechanics resemble Beat Fever or Tap Tap Revenge, as players match on-screen prompts that play along to the music. Marshmello Music Dance includes his biggest hits like “Alone” and “Fly,” and all new titles from Joytime III. Play as Marshmello, Slushii, Jauz, and others, and level up your characters to progress in the game.
“We wanted to release something that was fun and exciting for the Mellogang and this game was just that!” – Moe Shalizi CEO and Founder of The Shalizi Group
“It’s very exciting for Gamejam to be the first game developer ever to partner with an artist well-known like Marshmello to launch an album exclusive for 24 hours within a game which has never been achieved before. That’s why it was important for us to capture those epic moments in Marshmello’s concerts to create a challenging yet rewarding experience around them. We hope that our innovative approach inspires more musicians to follow in Marshmello’s footsteps and bring their music to games.” – Christian Calderon, CEO and Founder at Gamejam
Joytime III officially comes out tomorrow, July 3.
