BEAT BOXERS: Another Winning Game at the E3 Competition
Beat Boxers is a music fighting game where players can fight with different moves based on the beat of the music. It was a challenging concept to bring to life, but it was nothing that the BYU Animation game team couldn't handle. They brought it from concept to gameplay beautifully and impressed E3 Expo judges, ultimately winning a competition at the world's largest annual gaming event.
