A downloadable game for Windows and macOS

Download NowName your own price

A VR headset with motion controllers, or a mobile phone with Rhythm Taichi installed, on the same WiFi / LAN network, is required to play Rhytm Taichi on a computer.

If using your phone and not able to connect, ensure that the game is not blocked by windows firewall, the network is treated as "private," and UDP multicast / broadcast is enabled on the router.

3D Rhythm, reinvented

Rhythm Taichi takes a fresh new approach to 3D rhythm games. Slide your fingers gracefully along the paths traced on the screen, following the beats of the music - it's like practicing Taichi with your fingers!

Swipe with style, swipe with ease

Rhythm Taichi is built from the ground up, optimized for touch input. A carefully crafted pathing algorithm provides a comfortable yet challenging amount of finger travel for each hand. We've also ruthlessly optimized the game's graphics and networking pipeline to ensure that the game responds quickly and smoothly to your actions.

Looks good, feels good too

The new touch tracking algorithm is more precise then ever - and with the innovative 'rainfall' style timing effects, you get instant feedback on your synchronization performance. Finishing a song is just the beginning - compete against players around the world by perfecting your runs and submitting your scores on the leaderboard!

Thousands of supported songs

Rhythm Taichi maintains compatibility with the beat saver song format, and provides an in-game integration with the beat saver API for thousands of supported songs. If you don't wish your songs to be indexed within the game, you can opt out with the following link: Opt out link

You can also download songs from beatsaver.com yourself and install them by extracting to the following directory:


C:\Users\[Your username]\AppData\LocalLow\Tempstudio, LLC\Rhythm Taichi\savedsongs


~/Library/Application Support/Tempstudio, LLC/Rhythm Taichi/savedsongs

Play it on the big screen

With full-feature support for PC and Android TV, you can enjoy the game on the big screen. All second-screen experiences of Rhythm Taichi is 100% free without ads, and is compatible with all songs.

Virtual Reality Supported

Rhythm Taichi supports desktop VR setups (on Windows). Controller phone is not required, but can be used to sign in to submit scores to the leaderboard. Adjust the in-game height with the settings on the left part of the menu if your position is uncomfortable.

Is there a Linux version available?

I'm looking forward to it :)

on pc the game says i need to update even though im on the latest version

Strange, how did you update?

It should be fixed if you delete "version.json" file in the "Rhythm Taichi_Data" folder where the game in installed.

hi... for some reason... there's no sound coming out of the game.. :( I am using my PC connected to my android TV; my phone is the controller. 

Sorry about this. The game is very standard when it comes to sound output. Can you double-check if your setup works for other games? The sound setting on your PC, for example, may need to be configured to send the audio to your TV.

Also, try installing the game natively on your Android TV. Does sound come out that way?

this game deserves more love

can you do vr in the desktop version?

We're working on it. Stay tuned :)

Olá, Eu instalei o game no PC e no telephone, mas não consigo realizar a conexão entre eles, ambos estão na mesma rede Wi-fi. Quando pressiono "Start as controller" em Settings->VR/PC/Remote, no celular, ele identifica o o computador, aparece o nome do PC na tela do celular, mas na tela do PC não aparece nada, continua escrito a mensagem : "Connect your phone to begin". Já tentei iniciar como administrador !

Please make sure the WiFi on your PC is set to "private" instead of "public".

this is an amazing game but i have one problem when i use my phone as a controller for PC rhythm taichi and as the game starts loading the songs the game crashes on my phone


Apologies for this happening. Which version of the game do you have? Do you have any songs installed on your phone?

Try installing some songs manually onto the PC client by extracting .zip files from beatsaver.com to

C:\Users\[Your username]\AppData\LocalLow\Tempstudio, LLC\Rhythm Taichi\savedsongs

It may bypass the initial song installation and allow this to work.
