“Distortions is a music-based project that goes well beyond game mechanics and the world itself. Music has driven the whole concept forward. Before a single art asset was put in place,” says Thiago Girello, CEO of Among Giants. “From the start, we wanted to make a game that would use music. Since this is the connective tissue between narrative, environment and language. Before development began. We researched all the types of music Distortions will feature. What kind of ‘vibe’ they provide. And what stories they tell. With all this prior research. The rest was actually pretty straightforward!”
