Trombone Champ, when Twitch becomes hilarious in music
Every year, small indie games, such as the Crab Game or Pokéclickerare making the buzz on Twitch. Today, the platform is ablaze, in music, with Trombone Champ, a rhythm game based on... trombones!
What is Trombone Champ?
Rhythm games are not new, far from it. The concept seeks to challenge both your dexterity and your tempo. Whether you have to dance, strum a plastic guitar, tap bongos or click frantically, the important thing is to do it in time with the music! In the 2000s, the Guitar Hero series was at the top of the genre, today it's Trombone Champ that takes over.
Released 16 September This game stands out from others in the genre because of its very offbeat nature. One of its main assets is without a doubt the sound. In Trombone Champ, you become a talented artist with a trombone, it goes without saying that the wacky noises that sometimes come out remind us of old gag sound effects or even flatulence.... Moreover, the game lets you play false notes in case of failureThis is quite rare for this type of game. Beware, played with the keyboard and the mouse, this game is not easy! You'll probably have a lot of misfires at the beginning and your ears might get hurt.
Mix it with colourful and strange settings , remixed classical music and trendy tracksThe result is a cocktail that is as fun to watch as it is to play.
After an initial buzz on the other side of the Atlantic, the game quickly became the talk of social networks. Many streamers started to test their musical talents and agility. The hilarious results of all these attempts gave this little game even more visibility, until it reached the ears of the former journalist, and now streamer, Gautoz.
In addition to being a totally hilarious game, Trombone Champ offers you the opportunity to (re)discover trombone players who have marked their era, through cards, such as J.J.Johnson. Are you ready to collect them all?
Be careful though, there are also a lot of trolls hidden in the information provided by Trombone Champ, especially when loading. There is a (slight) doubt that the person with the most paper clips in the world has a collection of 4 billion instruments.
A sweet melody...
We'll end this article on a musical note and laugh out loud. Sit back and enjoy the concert.
