[Update: Greenlit] Stuck In Greenlight Limbo: ‘Tadpole Treble’

Tadpole Treble

This time the spotlight will be shining on Tadpole Treble, a game in which music defines the shape of each level. Let’s see if we can’t help it escape the cold emptiness of Greenlight limbo, eh?

While music plays a large role in most games, the music of Tadpole Treble directly determines the layout of the stage. The very obstacles Baton is swimming past in-game mirror the layout of notes on sheet music–you are literally playing along with the music!

So gobble up notes, avoid obstacles and help Baton evolve from tadpole to frog? Well, that’s what I got from the trailer anyway, and I have to admit, it does sound like fun. Its Greenlight page also mentions a ranking system, boss battles, and even an in-game shop, which could mean there’s more to it than an arcade-y high-score experience. Maybe some sort of upgrade system to help nail those S ranks? Hard to say what’s what, as they haven’t really shared an awful lot just yet. I do know one thing though: Tadpole Treble looks like it’s going to be… a musical trip!

So riddle me this, dear reader: why is Tadpole Treble still struggling to get through Greenlight? It’s not out just yet, but should be at some point, this December! As such, might I recommend visiting its Greenlight page and handing over a ‘yes’, if you like what you see? Remember: your vote matters!
