Beta 7: Instrument collectibles

The final soundStrider beta adds unlockable presets for the virtual instrument. Explore in any game mode to collect a variety of playable sounds ranging from pure synths to real instruments. Other enhancements include an improved poison effect and extended controls.

Don’t forget that soundStrider launches on Steam on July 10 at an updated price of $9.99 USD. The launch update will contain some eleventh-hour fixes. In the meantime, I hope you find joy in this update. Thanks for playing!
