Music of the Spheres is a puzzle-shooter about bouncing bullets, Islamic art, and sound. In it you can fire bullets which bounce, and when they bounce, a specific glockenspiel note is played. That simple premise gives rise to a lot of strategies, and the levels are designed to bring those strategies out. The way they do that is more “puzzle” than “shooter” - the game does not require many reflexes or risks. It just requires thoughtfulness and precision. It is intended express things concisely, and wordlessly - you do not have to be able to speak any language in order to play this game. “There’s a beauty in the apparent simplicity of the design, which like much that is contemplative is far more complex than it first appears. It’s somehow reassuring to play a puzzle game that is entirely disinclined to frustrate, hoping to create mindful, soothing spaces instead.” ~Adam Smith, Rockpapershotgun

Any plans for a demo? Your game plays really, really well and I'll include it in my next months thread of Indie Games:http://www.neogaf.com/forum/showthread.php?t=532236, but usually games with at least a free demo get way more attention.

@MiegakureGame Very fundamental idea to be coming out with after so much time! Do you feel you're only scratching the surface of 4Dgraphics?

Call me simplistic, but! #VoteGreen2015 T.co

@ferricide Oh ok. So is Symphony your favourite of all?

May 4 2015, 12:48pm

@ferricide Hey, did you like Order of Ecclesia?

@Doshmanziari Mkay. What would you say is the closest I can come to being able to ignore the RPG elements?

May 3 2015, 6:12pm

@Doshmanziari Are there any Castlevania games that have metroidvania progression but DON'T have RPG elements?

@cmuratori Just read that the pilot episode of Seaquest DSV was the directorial swansong of Irv Kirshner (directed the Empire Strikes Back)

@mvandevander Sure man!

May 3 2015, 6:18am

@mvandevander Of course not. But the culture in games is more motivated by nostalgia

May 3 2015, 6:18am

@mvandevander What I'm asking is why they're funding it. The people who do likely have a lot of respect for the guys making it.
