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 I'm extremely excited bout Four Sided Fantasy by the way T.co did you play The Fourth Wall or Perspective?

@MiegakureGame Or a sphere, if that would be easier to program? Though wonderfully weirder to navigate.

@MiegakureGame Yeah, it isn't (they even call it a tesseract!) but that doesn't mean a torus wouldn't be a great thing to see in Miegakure!

@MiegakureGame I guess soap films remain the ideal, since you can have things "inside" those.

@MiegakureGame There is a stronger sense of clinging, of the thing not being "on top of" the surface/touching it only on its feet.

@BossFightBooks YUH. By the way, forward thing to say, but I'm happy to rewrite that article for the book/for an exerpt if you want :)

@Lo_Fi_ This tweet made me get it! Better than Naya's Quest? Btw sorry I didn't finish the topology stuff on your forum!

@BerserkHuitzi Yeah. A flight is several tons of carbon, which if we were "citizens of the world" would be more than our yearly allowance

@MiegakureGame Hey, "water droplet on shower curtain" beats the shit out of the standard "ant on balloon"!

Nov 22 2014, 3:40am

@BossFightBooks Design analysis I did T.co people tend to talk about nothing but the game's story, hope you go further!
