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.

Mine's a story about saving the world, and I contrive the parts about individuals (if I don't it's hard for the audience to process!)

In their case, it's a story about individuals, and they have to contrive the "saving the world" part.

With my doc, I feel I have something in common but opposite to creators of superhero movies. We're both talking about saving the world...

Showbizgeek.com My rolemodel when I was young. Silly I know, but I point it out because in spite of being silly, I think it worked?

...there are so many cute phenomena in the world whose only destiny is to be made into toys, but which may one day serve in a good analogy!
