Auto-Staccato is a new action rhythm game coming to Linux and it's trying to get on Steam. Think of Audiosurf with swords and magics, it looks amusing.

About the game
Auto-Staccato is a ‘rhythm game’ by Birch Log taking place in a variety of fantasy settings. You must use your weapon or magic glowing hands to “Fight Your Music” by hitting enemies in time to the beat. Featuring a campaign mode with a mix of worlds and arenas and included music, players can also battle against their own music.

The theming is perfect for playing along to the likes of Audiomachine or Two Steps From Hell or whatever cinematic orchestra scoring.

Yeah, the problem with rhythm games is that I can never seem to get past level one.

First thing I think of is Queen, News of the World, We Will Rock You.

It fits the game's whole sword and sorcery theme ... So does Ogre Battle

but the fast, complex rhythm makes me think playing it would be like an ogre stampede ... I'll save it for later.

Ah!! Back to News of the World. I'll start with Get Down Make Love,
