At SoftEgg, we've always tried to do what nobody else is doing. I think they call that "innovation", but we mean it in a totally non-buzzwordy way.
With Princess Maker 2, we were ahead of both the anime trend and a whole new genre of "raising-up" games. Our imitators have had some great successes!
Now, with Rhythm Core Alpha for Nintendo DSi (in Nintendo DSIWare shop), we have released a tool that lets you make real music, live, in front of an audience. An improvisational tool. A real musical instrument that fits in your pocket!
