Beethoven and Dinosaur and Annapurna Interactive show off Mixtape

Developer Beethoven and Dinosaur (The Artful Escape) and publisher Annapurna Interactive revealed Mixtape, a coming-of-age action adventure built around the patchwork joy and emotional power of mixtapes.

Mixtape will feature music from iconic artists like Devo, Roxy Music, Lush, The Smashing Pumpkins, Iggy Pop, Siouxsie and the Banshees, Joy Division, and many more.

Mixtape follows three teenagers as they prepare to graduate high school and leave their Northern California hometown. En route to their final party together, a perfectly curated playlist draws them into dreamlike reenactments of the pivotal moments that shaped them. The game reminded me of the Life is Strange series of teen angst games.

Players will immerse themselves in the teenage wasteland by playing through a mixtape of joyful gameplay, from skateboarding and flying to taking photos after hours at an abandoned theme park, hitting baseballs, and putting on a fireworks show from the backseat of a car. It’s the greatest hits of teenage friendship, from the first kiss to the last dance.

Mixtape draws inspiration from classic coming-of-age movies, bringing together nostalgic aimlessness, mischief, music, the highs and lows of adolescence, and the bittersweet feelings brought about by growth, transformation, and moving on.

Mixtape will be available day one with Xbox Game Pass (Series X|S, Windows) when it launches in 2025. It will also be available at launch on PlayStation 5 and Steam.
