Trivia: Beat Hazard

  • Executive Meddling: For a time, Beat Hazard Ultra was outright rejected by Microsoft to be released on Xbox Live Arcade and much less Xbox LIVE Indie Games, hence Beat Hazard Ultra being released on other platforms. Cut to late July 2013, Beat Hazard Ultra was released on Xbox LIVE Indie Games alongside the original, mostly due to the criticism Microsoft received with their alienating policies for indie developers on the Xbox One and later dropping it altogether.
  • Working Title: According to Word of Starg, Beat Hazard's title was originally planned to be "Audio Space Pwnage", but he figured "Beat Hazard" sounded much more fitting.
