Cadence

I've just spent the last half hour messing about with the Cadence demo. It's a musical puzzler in which you draw lines to connect points that, through what becomes a fairly convoluted process, creates a loop of unbroken music. For instance, it'd be difficult to explain why exactly the above diagram works—except to say the squares reflect beats, the right-hand circle stores them, and that, over the course of the levels up to that point, I'd managed to learn enough of the game's rules to sort of intuit the answer.

It's an entertaining time-passer, and one that's currently seeking Kickstarter funds (opens in new tab). The campaign is asking for £25,000, although with 8 days left it's a long way off that total.

He eventually joined full-time as a news writer, before moving to the magazine to review immersive sims, RPGs and Hitman games. Now he leads PC Gamer's UK team, but still sometimes finds the time to write about his ongoing obsessions with Destiny 2, GTA Online and Apex Legends. When he's not levelling up battle passes, he's checking out the latest tactics game or dipping back into Guild Wars 2. He's largely responsible for the whole Tub Geralt thing, but still isn't sorry.
