Description

DubWars is an action-packed arcade shooter that successfully combines music and gaming in a way never seen before. We've collaborated with incredible EDM and Dubstep artists to create a game that synchronizes the energetic music with fun and exciting gameplay. The music becomes your weapon as they fire in sync to the rhythm of the song, each beat firing a unique weapon. Listen to the bass, up beats, climax, and the drop of each song in order to progress through each level's difficulty. Analyze the risk and reward of collecting Wubs from destroyed enemies in order to upgrade, or just try to frantically survive the song!

History

Based on the game mechanics of a classic arcade top-down shooter, DubWars takes away a degree of control and syncs your shooting with the movement of the music. Instead of forcing you to tap buttons in a certain rhythm, the music track triggers an ammunition payout from your weapon. It’s your job to stay alive and use the beats of the music to destroy your enemies. Using the sounds of a number of up-and-coming dubstep producers like NGTMRE, OMNI, Minecraft Universe, Dubsective and others, the music is transformed into a weapon as your avatar fires in sync to the rhythm of the song.

About ++Good Games

Our Mission
Double Plus Good Games celebrates and champions the best games, the best developers, and the greatest experiences this industry has to offer. Along the way we want to share with others what has made this industry so exceptional to work in these past 40 years.

Early History
From 1996 through 2003 our CEO and Creative director were both actively developing games for Activision, Disney, Microsoft, Hasbro, and Sony. While at ImageBuilder Software, our team worked on memorable titles like KidPix, Disney’s Magic Artist, Tonka Dig N’ Rigs, Pictionary, Shrek, Microsoft Tutor, Who Wants to be Millionaire, and countless others.

And Then After That...
++Good (pronounced “Double Plus Good”) Games first hit the scene in 2010 as a podcast focused on driving awareness to niche publishers like Atlus, XSeed, NIS, Hudson, and others. Our original goal was to focus on building a core group of passionate gamers and providing a feedback loop for these companies bringing games from overseas. Well, a funny thing happened on our way there…

Which Brings Us To...
As ++Good Games made the pivot from podcast to games publisher, we’ve been able to work with some phenomenal individuals at Unity, NVIDIA, Devolver Digital, and more. In 2013, we partnered up with GameChanger Charity, an organization that focuses on improving quality of life for children, their families and caregivers through the power of video games. In the past three years, we’ve supported multiple hospital tours and have contributed over $25,000 through our time and donations.
