Beethoven and Dinosaur of The Artful Escape fame has announced its next title – Mixtape, an adventure title published by Annapurna Interactive. It launches in 2025 for Xbox Series X/S and PC while also coming to Game Pass at launch. Check out the first trailer below.

With high school coming to a close, three friends go through a “perfectly curated playlist” of their memories while travelling to a party. These vignettes provide “dreamlike reenactments”, with the friends taking pictures, experiencing their first kisses, skateboarding and much more.

The soundtrack is replete with music by Iggy Pop, Joy Division, The Smashing Pumpkins and more. Inspired by coming-of-age films, it aims to capture the joy of being a teenager with good vibes and bad. Of course, it’s also about “the bittersweet feelings brought about by growth, transformation, and moving on,” which should be interesting to experience.

Stay tuned for more details on Mixtape in the coming months, including its release date and additional gameplay.
