Digital Praise, developer of Christian-themed, family-friendly entertainment software, has released Guitar Praise, its new inspirational guitar game. The game lets players act out their dreams of leading a rock band by playing along with their favorite Christian rock tunes. As the song and lyrics play, colorful notes scroll down the screen. Players must keep up by matching the notes to the fret buttons on the guitar controller included with the game. Four levels of play are offered—as the player completes songs, more tracks are unlocked and the challenge increases.
In creating Guitar Praise, Digital Praise has applied its intimate knowledge of player tastes gained through its #1 best-selling Dance Praise™ dance arcade game franchise. "Our research shows that 92% of Dance Praise families, and 100% of Dance Praise churches, are interested in Guitar Praise," said Tom Bean, President and CEO of Digital Praise, Inc. "People love the console guitar games on the market, but many would like more family-friendly songs and graphics. Guitar Praise gives kids, families and youth groups the play features they like best, plus some new twists as well as the best Christian rock titles out there today." Guitar Praise supports both Mac and Windows machines and includes one wireless guitar controller, a USB wireless adapter, plus the game CD. It retails for an MSRP of $99.95 (USD) and requires Mac OS X 10.3, a 1GHz processor, 650MB hard disk space, 512MB RAM, and a USB port.
Leading the unique list of features in Guitar Praise is the ability to sing along with the game's chart-topping rock tunes, thanks to lyrics that scroll across the screen. "Guitar Praise can be an exciting group event ," noted Bean. "Having the lyrics onscreen reinforces the positive messages present in Guitar Praise's roster of songs, and allows everyone to take part in the game."
Guitar Praise features 52 of the most inspirational and pulsating tracks from the Christian rock world, all by the original artists. Today's most popular hits are combined with classics from the 80's and 90's; the playlist includes titles from Flyleaf, Skillet, Stellar Kart, tobyMac, Newsboys, Petra, 12 Stones, Spoken, Whitecross, Thousand Foot Krutch, Paul Baloche, David Crowder, and Red, plus many others.
As players shred through their guitar solos, Guitar Praise records high scores per song. New songs, in sets of five, are unlocked along the way to keep the player's interest. By tilting the guitar, players can activate spinner bonuses; as they increase their skills they can earn new onscreen "guitars" with richer sounds and different effects.
Guitar Praise keeps the fun coming by allowing either one player to perform in solo mode, or two players to compete for the better lead guitar score. With a second guitar (not included but available from digitalpraise.com), players can jam at the same time—both on lead guitar, or one on lead and the other on bass. The game's Power Duel mode also lets players send "surprises" that impact their opponent's play.
