The museum of rhythm games

Project OutFox features 18 different game types, each with their own set of chart styles. Charts can be imported from a variety of simfile formats used by other rhythm game simulators, including .bms, .bml, .bme .chart, .dwi, .dtx, .gda, .ksf, .mc, .mid, .osu and .osz, .pms, .qua and .qp, .sma, .sm, .ssc, and .tja.

Extensible & Customizable

Use assets such as noteskins, judgement graphics, and themes to customize the game to your liking. A built-in editor allows you to write your own charts in any of Project OutFox's game modes, and a Lua API enables content creators to develop new in-game experiences and challenges.

Wide hardware support

Project OutFox supports a wide variety of input devices, including keyboards, gamepads, rhythm game-specific controllers such as dance pads, instruments, and arcade hardware, as well as MIDI devices. Builds are avaliable for Windows, Linux, and macOS, including ARM builds for macOS and Linux-based single-board computers such as Raspberry Pi.
