Trombone Champ is the newest video game players can’t put down – even if those around them want them to.
Developed by Holy Wow Studios, the rhythm-based video game is similar to Guitar Hero – but turns the guitar into a trombone. The avatar plays the trombone while the player moves the mouse up and down to match the on-screen frames. Mouse movements are reversed, adding another level of difficulty.
The game, which was released on September 15, went viral this week after people online – ranging from video game reviewers to real fans. trombone players – started posting tapes of them playing.
The result? Fun, songs like the National Anthem and Beethoven’s Symphony No. 5, and the subsequent laughter of people on the Internet.
Dan Vecchitto, the game’s developer, said he never expected it to become the new source of laughter on the Internet. In fact, Vecchitto, whose full-time job includes web design, expected a much smaller and more enthusiastic group.
“Obviously I’m very happy about that and I’m a little bit relieved,” Vecchitto said with a laugh. “I wasn’t sure what the answer would be because… it always seems negative.”
Vecchitto, who says he develops video games as a hobby, doesn’t even play the trombone.
He came up with the idea for Trombone Champ four years ago, inspired by the custom wardrobe. Vecchitto said he envisioned a cabinet, instead of a plastic gun, with a plastic trombone attached to a moving slider.
“I thought it would be funny to imagine someone trying to move a big rubber trombone slide in and out to look like these big squiggly lines flying across the screen,” he said.
I wasn’t sure what the answer would be because… it always seems negative.

Developing the game was a simple and easy process, according to Vecchitto, who worked on it at night and on Saturdays.
But the tricky part for Vecchitto was that he wanted to find songs that players could enjoy without paying any royalties. Almost all music is classical in the public domain.
The game features one original piece by the London-based artist Max Tundracalled “Long-Tail Limbo.”
At first, Vecchitto said he was afraid that real trombone players would insult the game. However, he said most of the trombone players he heard from enjoyed it.
“DANCE TO THE TROMBONE?!?!? “It’s like Trombone Champ was really made for me,” G4 host and trombonist Austin Creed posted on Twitter.
YouTuber Trombone Timo, a professional trombonist with a large social media following, also enjoyed the game.
“Overall this game is complete garbage – just a joke,” he said in his video review. “It’s amazing.”
The only thing he has? A trombonist doesn’t move their entire body to reach certain notes like an avatar does in a game, he said.
“Also, ‘tromboner?”” he added, referring to what a player is called in the game. “Come on… [it’s] trombonist!”
Many said that the game made them laugh a lot.
“Trombone Champ is so funny because the off-key trombone sound is the same, so it’s almost as funny, especially in rehearsal,” one person said. tweeted.
“Trombone Champ is unbelievable,” sports the author Joseph Yaden posted on Twitter. “The funniest game I’ve ever played.”
“I saw the video from pc gamer. , a video game distribution service platform.
Many tweet requests for songs that they hope to one day see “Trombone Champ.” Some suggested The game is “quick” Game of the Year.
Vecchitto says that due to the overwhelming response, he will continue to update and improve what he believes is the first trombone-centric game.
The game, priced at $14.99, is available for PC via Steam. Vecchitto said he plans to release a Mac version and, eventually, a version for consoles. The game is also currently only available in English, but Vecchitto plans to add other languages.
“I always knew the idea was funny,” Vecchitto said. “But I still wonder how the virus went.”
