Instant Jam Developer Interview »

In tandem with this week's Gamescom show, casual game makers InstantAction unveiled Instant Jam, a web-based music game with a twist. While other music game allow you to play a song from a pre-selected setlist of music chosen for you, Instant Jam uses your own MP3s to generate the track list.

In a nutshell: It's a free-to-play Guitar Hero style game that syncs with your music library and allows you to play with either your computer keyboard or a USB guitar controller.

“We created Instant Jam because we believe people should be able to play along to any song from any band or genre they like, rather than be confined to a handful of pre-set songs chosen for the game they’re playing,” said Louis Castle, CEO of InstantAction. “We also strongly believe that games – like other forms of entertainment media – should be easier for consumers to discover, try, enjoy and share. Instant Jam embodies all of this and provides music lovers with a powerful new way to interact while experiencing their music.”

The game is in beta testing phase right now, and check out our Instant Jam preview. Also, check out the official site and sign up for the beta. It's a pretty cool thing, man.
