The Scratch: The Ultimate DJ wiki last edited by Deathawk on 07/10/13 01:37PM View full history

Overview

Scratch: The Ultimate DJ is a rhythm game originally developed by 7 Studios before development responsibilities were passed to Commotion Interactive. It claims to allow players flexibility and creativity bucking the rhythm gaming trend of rigid emulation of available songs.

Gameplay

The game is played using an accessory, the Scratch Deck, designed by Numark, a renowned manufacturer of professional audio equipment. It consists of a turntable along with five color-coded buttons lined up horizontally and a cross-fader. Each button is assigned to play a sample even if they are pressed at a time when that sample is not required, giving the player an opportunity to improvise and create actual music rather than simply emulating the actions used to play a static background track.

Delay

Legal problems surrounding the game's developer along with their purchase and a reassignment of the game to a different studio have caused the game's anticipated release to be adjusted from September '09 (beating DJ Hero to market) to a more vague estimate of "early 2010." In the meantime, developers are working on an updated art style and additional tracks for the release.
