Maximum (MXM) is a look at the evolution of design as seen in rhythm games. This project focuses specifically on three games (beatmania IIDX, Sound Voltex, and Guitar Hero) and offers an in-depth look at how the graphical systems within these series have changed over their history. These explorations offer better insight for how each series works on its own, but also how they all work within the greater genre of rhythm games as a whole. Each of these series offers a unique approach to the problem of designing, and can hopefully serve as a catalyst to start more looks into visual design in rhythm games.
The bottom line is:
All design is worthy of study, regardless of how popular or niche it is.
