osu! is a free-to-play online rhythm game
osu! gameplay is based on a variety of popular commercial rhythm games. While keeping some authentic elements, osu! adds huge customisation via skins/beatmaps/storyboarding, online rankings, multiplayer and boasts a community with over 500,000 active users! Play the way you want to play, with your own music, and share your creations with others.


The Ranking Charts for December 2014 have just been released and can be found here! We also updated the Ranking Charts long-term leaderboard. Due to technical difficulties, we will release the detailed vote results in the middle of the week.

We’d like to welcome all of you to this year’s official osu! Taiko World Cup. The rules have been adjusted from the previous TWC, so please read them carefully before registering for this tournament.

The year 2014 passed and the entire osu!staff would like to wish everyone a happy new year again! Along with that, we opened the traditional Best of 2014 votings.

You may have noticed the festive Christmas backgrounds, rotated on the title screen in the lead up to Christmas (from December 22 ~ 31) - but now it’s finally time to reveal the results of Fanart Contest #5 voting.
