Feed the Beat,

is a rhythm based, cooking, time management, beat-em-up. You have 24 hours to become the best cook in your area, but you don't just use normal ingredients, no. You use living ones and those have to be beaten with beats!

Before you get into fighting, you need to choose an order. Each order has a specific amount of time that is needed to make that dish and a difficulty indicated by the blue skulls, each skull stands for another enemy you have to stand up against in a row.

i perfer this over the plus edition cuz it actually has a end to a song (apart from death)

I found that the game is unresponsive when I try to hit multiple notes in a row. So if I have ^ followed by > and >, it won't register me pressing > either time.

As usually, a fantastically looking game with some sweet tunes and a simple, but fun core mechanic. <3 I liked how it became more and more difficult over time to keep in track with the beats. :D Scored 35.625 at my first try, thanks to some yummy pumpkin soup. I've got to say, you and Jason make a really great team! I was happy to recommend "Feed the Beat" with two other rhythm-based games in one of our compilation articles about the Ludum Dare 41 and to upload a related video. <3 Good luck with the ratings and see you soon! :)

Best wishes,


I am glad you had fun with it! Currently working on a post jam version that will mix things up a bit on how they are currently, so you might want to check it out when that is done. =)


Will absolutely do! <3 Thanks for letting me know. :)

I've played the post jam version. Jesus christ if it's good.


Very nice game! Very fun to play and the music is fantastic!

I don't understand the score, but, 94795 points on first try :K


Solid presentation!
