GAME LAUNCH: Get a groove on with Raise the Bass – 5/1/18
Get a groove on with Raise the Bass
Raise the Bass, a free, fun music-themed arcade game where you defend your turntable from corrupted sound waves is available for download now at the Apple App Store and Google Play. The mobile game was created during the 2017 MassDiGI Summer Innovation Program (SIP) by students Amber Skarjune from Wellesley, Emily Ryan from Becker, Ty Enos from Tufts, Veneta Cholakova from Mt. Holyoke, Wenley Shen from RISD, Paul DeSimone from RIT and Lisa Jeong from Berklee College of Music.
Working over the summer, the team produced a beta/near-release version of the game – watch the trailer here. From there, we brought the game into our LiveStudio program at Becker during the fall ’17 and spring ’18 semesters. Through LiveStudio, more students across a range of disciplines, including business students, had roles in polishing the game and getting it ready to launch.
