Los Angeles, CA - August 16, 2017 - Akupara Games today revealed "Endless Mode" for the upcoming rhythm-RPG,  The Metronomicon: Slay the Dance Floor. Unlocked after completing the main story campaign, Endless Mode is a rogue-like challenge mode where you battle against an unlimited playlist of songs as the enemies' levels slowly increase, and a variety of game modifiers get stacked against you.

Use and swap through your Heroes and all their skills to combat hero knockouts, equipment breaks, and even skill lockouts. Gain and spend Battle Points to empower your current run, or save them up to unlock permanent cross-mode rewards. The faster you go, and the more modifiers that are applied, the more points you'll earn. However! Fail to defeat a song's boss before it ends, and your run is  over. Done. Failed. Back to start. Featuring its own leaderboard, Endless Mode is the ultimate challenge.

Akupara Games is partnering with multiple Twitch streamers on Saturday, August 19 to host a 12-hour charity stream to support  St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. Our partnered streamers will be featuring Endless Mode exclusively during this marathon and we encourage everyone to visit twitch.tv/akuparagames on Saturday from 9:00 AM - 9:00 PM PDT to help us raise money for children's cancer research. 

Those who are unable to tune in on Saturday but would still like to donate can do so now our Tiltify charity page. The charity page also contains the Saturday streaming schedule of our hosted charity partners. We have additional partners lined up so please keep checking back to see who's new, or follow their channels today to watch their official Endless Mode practice streams. Final schedule and partner list will be posted this Friday, Aug 18. 

FYI - If you would like to partner with us in support of St. Jude please contact Connor Bridgeman at  connor@akuparagames.com .

Due to demand we may not be able to host your stream on the Akupara Channel proper, but we will adding ALL charity partners to the donation page as well as providing digital download codes for The Metronomicon: STDF (all platforms) to distribute as incentive for viewers to tune in and donate to a good cause. (Streaming build will be provided [PC]. Certain requirements apply.)

It is our hope that by revealing Endless Mode in this manner we can help make a difference for the children and families whose lives are impacted by this horrible disease.
