Beatbuddy breaks out the turntables this summer


Beatbuddy has been jamming on its own for far too long, and it's finally ready to share some sweet tunes with the world. Beatbuddy is coming to PC and Mac this summer, but first it's stopping off at PAX East, in booth 1048, to show some hands-on demos.

Play the demo on Steam, for free, if this news alone doesn't set your toes tapping.
