Foreign Media Games will market in 2010 a DJ game called IN THE MIX: Featuring Armin van Buuren exclusively on Nintendo Wii. This unique game with the world's number one DJ in the lead role offers players a unique opportunity to follow in Armin’s footsteps. The career mode is an integral part of the game for that reason. This press release explains the career mode.
Career Mode - IN THE MIX: Featuring Armin van Buuren
The career mode allows you to experience the entire career of a real DJ. Your own accomplishments determine how far your career goes!
The game starts by choosing the city that will be your home base. As a starting DJ you will play what is still a simple set in a few underground clubs in your home city. If you do your work well, a talent scout will introduce you to some larger clubs in the local circuit. The stepping-stone to your international breakthrough will be a deal with a successful record label and your contacts with influential people.
For your gigs at parties and in clubs you will get money as well as points. You can use the money to buy new equipment in the DJ Store, such as CDJs, mixers and sound effect equipment. Each investment represents a unique step forward in your career. If you opt for a better mixer, for example, you will have more channels available for mixing; good headphones will help you beat-match numbers. The higher up the career ladder you climb, the more demanding your work environment will become. You will repeatedly have to get the audience swinging, and not just by means of music: you must also use your poses and gestures to build up a scintillating atmosphere among the audience.
The career mode gradually introduces you to all elements of the work of a DJ. The many technical secrets of the job are unveiled in a way that everybody can understand and are used in the game. The career mode of IN THE MIX: Featuring Armin van Buuren genuinely gives you the feeling of being able to grow from a starting DJ into an international superstar, and who better than Armin van Buuren to show you the way?
