Who are we?

We are a team of passionate gamers, software engineers, designers, writers, community leaders (and more!) who want to continue to improve Beat Saber.

What do we do?

1. The BSMG Discord: We help grow and maintain the largest VR community on Discord, now with over 150,000 members. This central hub has brought together incredible talent all over the world to build amazing mods, maps, sabers, environments / platforms, tournaments, contests and so much more.

2. bsaber.com:
  • Curating: Playing almost every map (over 60 a day) that gets released, reviewing them, giving maps worth playing a “Curator Recommended” tag, adding other helpful tags like genre and map characteristics to them, working with the mappers to improve score points, and more.
  • Player Review System: We’ve built a system that lets players upvote / review a map right after playing it.
  • Algorithms: All the characteristics entered about a map, including ones that are pulled from players and curators are put into algorithms on the site to make sure maps worth playing aren’t missed. We’ll eventually give you personalized recommendations for new maps based on your preferences.
  • SyncSaber: SyncSaber can automatically sync all “Curator Recommended” maps. You can browse maps on your phone or work computer and add a bookmark to the song and it will automatically show up in your game when you’re ready to play. SyncSaber also lets you find mappers that you like and follow them so any new map that they release will be ready to play as a playlist when you launch it!
  • Playlists and Campaigns: Curators spend countless hours hand picking maps to recreate that magical experience that you had when you first played Beat Saber. We’ve lately been working on building some new campaigns with a very high level of polish that will give you new things to compete on. We’re building a custom leaderboard so that you can compete on who is a king of a “set of maps” rather than just a single one. There’s also a new level of satisfaction when you earn a map by unlocking it that improves player's experience and gives new reasons to fall in love with the game over again.

3. Community Leading:
  • Lead and help mappers, modders, modelers, developers, etc
  • Put together contests (100k, Christmas, Halloween, etc)
  • Interviews with key members in the community
  • Creating tutorials
  • Build new tools like Beatdrop to let you create and share playlists
  • Moderate BeastSaber Discord, BSMG Discord, Mapping Discord, r/BeatSaber subreddit, and more

Why do we need support?


Disclaimer: I really HATE asking money and I also strongly dislike ads on websites, so this part is hard for me. Our primary goal is and always will be to help grow the community, not to make money, but doing this without any support has become hard lately.

With the growth of traffic and features created for bsaber.com, we've had to spend over $200 a month out of our own pockets for the past year to keep the bsaber.com lights on (and countless hours). What we REALLY want to build (more on that soon) will likely cost even more.

If you like what we've done so far and want to see a LOT more in the future, please consider supporting us. Most of us have families to feed and busy lives that can make parts of building and maintaining BeastSaber simply hard work that's done into the wee hours of the morning. Your support will keep us going and allow us to do things currently not possible (ways for mappers to legally earn money for their hard work, hire out different work from specialists, etc.) to help build the BeastSaber we've dreamed of.

Any funding for bsaber.com will be for our servers, hardware, development, design, and contests.

Thank you for being the most amazing community in the world! We can't wait to continue growing with you! ❤️
