Devolver Digital has added another to Steam’s Early Access library, Cosmic DJ. Developed by Gl33k, the “psychedelic sound design game” puts players behind a set of digital turntables as the Cosmic DJ of Legend, who has been tasked with repairing Jamtennas throughout the galaxy by using a tap-based sequencer and precision grid sequencer. In my mind, one cannot call themselves the Cosmic DJ of Legend until all six levels have been made funky again, but we’re also known for rigorous titling practices. So go forth, and return the rhythm to the galaxy.

Some days are pretty average. And then there are those days when you go looking for your missing father and end up unleashing the forces of hell after you run across the Demons’ Score, a program that just so happens to allow demons to possess you. Serenity is having one of those kinds of days. (Insert joke about it probably being a Monday here.) For $6.99, you can help her by downloading the Unreal Engine 3-powered App and seeing the demons off the only way you know how: through rhythm-based combat.
