Reverb Publishing and German indie developer THREAKS are happy to announce today the availability of the free Beatbuddy: Tale of the Guardians demo on Steam for PC, Mac, and Linux players. The playable demo is set to Parov Stelar’s “Beatbuddy Swing” and includes a broad swath of the first level, where the mystical Beatbuddy first learns to how to navigate his underwater, musical world to open paths as he learns the “rhythm of game” to solve puzzles on his journey.
The playable demo is now available on the Beatbuddy Steam page.

Each level has stunning 2D hand-drawn backgrounds and engaging puzzles, with an adventure harmonized to the rhythm of music composed by Austin Wintory, Parov Stelar, and other amazing artists.
