• Hiya Everyone!

    We are not dead!

    We have encountered a few problems with some new mode implementations which have meant a slight rewrite and addenda to the note, scoring and hold system was in order. This, tied in with the latest Windows updates has meant our release schedule has slipped for this month, but do not fear, we are striving to fix the final bugs so we can get a release out to you all really soon.

    Following feedback, we will be looking at adding a new launcher and update system this fall, so it will make the update process easier. As is always the case: we will not require an online connection to play the game - nor will the update check/score uploading/etc. be forced/mandatory. If you are on an offline system or cabinet, we do not wish to interrupt this experience.

    The next build will contain some new modes. Please let us know what you think of these so that we can continue to widen the scope of our game, and remove the limitations on the engine placed upon us due to StepMania's original scope and design. A lot of the new mode work will require new note, scoring, and even notefield work so we can ensure not everything is forced within the 4-key paradigm as was in the past.

    We thank you for your continued support, and remember to stay safe out there.

    We appreciate you all,

    Team Rizu

    OutFox Community Pack

    We are still accepting music, graphics artists, and charters for the OutFox Community Pack project.

  • We are looking for legally-unencumbered music to include with Project OutFox in the future. Submissions must:

    • Be licensed under a free content license that permits modification and commercial use with attribution (preferably a recognized license such as Creative Commons CC-BY or BY-SA)
    • Not contain copyrighted material (i.e. no remixes of copyrighted songs, or use of legally-encumbered samples)

    If you have any questions or would like to submit or suggest music, join us on our Discord server! Our submission deadline is July 31, 2021.

  • We would like to provide an update on our roadmap for the next few months.

    StepMania 5.3 Alpha 5.0.0 is being pushed to December 2020, due to us wanting to get in a lot of new content and features in and test them thoroughly before releasing. We will continue our monthly fixes and dev streams during this period, so 4.8.5, 4.9 and 4.9.5 will be the September, October, and November builds respectively.

    With the level of new stuff planned we felt it wise to not rush it and ensure you folks get the experience you deserve. It'll also be a nice holiday present for those of you with some time off over the new year to enjoy the new game.

    4.8.0 is still on schedule; we are just applying some last minute fixes for Para mode, and we will talk about this more tomorrow on our developer stream which will be at 9:00 p.m. BST/ 4 p.m. EST.

    Thanks again for all your support and contributions, we truly are humbled by all the hard work you do for this community.

  • We have been hard at work on OutFox, as well as engaging with the community via other platforms -- such as our Discord server, and occasional development update streams on Twitch. As we approach our first public alpha release -- which will be released on December 15, 2019 -- we will be updating the site to reflect the progress we have been making.
