Trombone Champ is the newest video game players can't put down — even if those around them wished they would.

Trombone Champ is the newest video game players can't put down — even if those around them wished they would.

Developed by Holy Wow Studios, the rhythm-based video game is similar to Guitar Hero — but swaps the guitar for trombone. An avatar plays the trombone while the player moves their mouse up and down to sync with pitches on the screen. The mouse movements are inverted, adding another level of difficulty.

The game, which was released Sept. 15, went viral this week after people online — ranging from video game reviewers to actual trombone players — began posting recordings of themselves playing it.

The result? A lot of tooting, to songs like the national anthem and Beethoven’s Symphony No. 5, and subsequent laughs from people on the internet.

Dan Vecchitto, the game's developer, said he never expected it would turn into the internet’s newfound source of laughter. In fact, Vecchitto, whose full-time job is in web design, expected a much smaller group of enthusiasts.
