Musical action adventure title Beatbuddy gets a silly new trailer

A new trailer for Beatbuddy: Tale of the Guardians shows the 2D sidescroller from German indie studio Threaks, takes a slightly tongue-in-cheek approach to the art of promoting an upcoming video game.

The trailer repeatedly reminds the viewer that Beatbuddy is not just a music game, but an action game and an adventure game as well, particularly one in which you solve puzzles that involve music. The end of the trailer seals the deal on the joke, in the event it hadn't been obvious before.

Veteran games writer Rhianna Pratchett is collaborating with Threaks on the script for the title, and the game launches on Windows, Mac and Linux on August 8.
