Rhythm-based RPG Keylocker Gets a New Extended Demo Today

Posted June 10, 2024
Developed by Moonana and published by Serenity Forge, Keylocker merges the high-pace of rhythm action with traditional turn-based combat in a world blooming with life and stories. The team behind the game is excited to release today as part of Steam Next Fest the biggest demo of Keylocker yet, full of electrifying extras including two new playable party members: the clandestine Dealer, and jukebox-turned-combat robot, Rocket. Players will also be able to play through the first major boss fight and end the run by putting on a rock concert in thunderous rhythm game style.

Keylocker is a Cyberpunk turn-based rhythm JRPG inspired by the Mario&Luigi RPG series and Chrono Trigger, in which you play as the singer and songwriter, B0B0. Fuel your moves with the electric power of music in an unforgiving planet by using real-time execution of moves in rhythm game style! Battle the authorities, unlock the secrets of Saturn, play some sick concerts and hack into the network to bring an end to this corrupt system, for better or worse.

  • Choose your path as a cyberpunk rebel, each with its own unique skill tree and storyline.
  • Classic Turn Based Combat with a twist: Real-Time execution of moves in rhythm game style, aim your shots, time your attacks, parry and block your enemies in this unforgiving planet.
  • No Random-Encounters; fight your enemies head-on with seamless in-world battles inspired by Chrono Trigger.
  • Befriend the citizens, or betray them, hacking into their profiles to acquire resources or to change the course of the story with multiple endings.
  • Play with your band to the friends you made at the Music Show minigame, featuring compositions by Elektrobear (Momodora, Virgo Versus The Zodiac), voiced by Psamathes. But watch out on the Danger Meter!
  • Completely customize your characters with a great variety of equipment; unlock special Talents using the Keys harvested from enemies you DELETE in combat.
  • Unique interactions with every object of the world: exploring Saturn can lead to secrets, rewards or entire pieces of knowledge about the planet.
Keylocker is set to release in summer 2024 on PC, Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S.
