Start jamming 8-bit style!

Do you LOVE 8-bit music from classic video games? Prepare to create your own! KEYTARI: 8-bit Music Maker will transform your Wii U GamePad into an 8-bit jamming machine!

Simply touch the keys on your Wii U GamePad and YOU are playing KEYTARI. KEYTARI was designed to be easy to pick up and play. But to truly master KEYTARI, practice and experimentation will take you far - just like with a traditional musical instrument.

Wield powerful lead instruments such as SineSquare, MultiPlex, and PolySaw. Power-Up a Background Beat, Underworld Bass, Sustain, and the Drum Kit to take your 8-bit style jamming to the Next Level!

Scoring is simple. +1 for every key played. Most think the Score Board is just for fun... However, the sages speak of a hero from afar who will break past the maximum score of 9999 and thus beat KEYTARI.

KEYTARI is not music composition software. It does not have an editor, record feature, or share feature.

Jam 8-bit style with KEYTARI: 8-bit Music Maker!
