Hexagroove combines elements of strategy, rhythm, and action games in a unique blend of self-expression. Your goal as a DJ is to combine musical loops in real time to regulate a virtual audience's energy, working them into a state of euphoria with your artistic skills. The action swings from contemplative to frantic as you move between song sections in one of 15 dance music genres. Over time you'll unlock new musical loops, DJ tricks, and club venues to play in. Perform together with friends in your room or on the dance floor with this truly creative title.


Ichigoichie is an indie developer founded by two veterans from iNiS and Linden Lab. We are technologists and musicians who have been combining games and music since the Apple II days. Our team has been fortunate to help create award-winning console and mobile titles in Japan and Sweden such as: Ouendan/Elite Beat Agents, Gitaroo Man Lives!, Lips, and Blocksworld. We look forward to bringing you a platform to express yourself artistically while having fun living the dream of a master DJ.
