So to accompany the announcement. The studio are proud to release the latest trailer. Focusing on the music of the illustrious house and techno producer, Marc Houle. Who contributed to the game’s dynamic soundtrack.
Beat The Game combines beautiful, handcrafted characters. Environments have a classic 3D point and click adventuring. While adding an intuitive music making mechanic. Inspired as much by twentieth century surrealists, Dali and Ernst. Hence their modern European techno. Beat The Game is a charming adventure game with a heart made of music.

Beat The Game | The Music Of Marc Houle:

With a background in beautifully crafted film animation, Worm Animation takes players on a journey with Mistik, the hero of Beat The Game, to uncover the mysterious, abstract universe he finds himself in after a motorbike crash. Mistik, though, is no ordinary hero—he’s a music producer. With the help of his trusty recorder, Mistik must collect the samples scattered around Beat The Game’s beautiful, dream-like environments in order to create the ultimate track. Esteemed house and techno producer, Marc Houle, is scoring the soundtrack. So this ensures the player can craft a own club thumper for the launch on Linux, Mac and Windows.

From discarded drum sticks to the clang of a stone on metal. Beat The Game’s environments are littered with an array of sounds and colourful characters. So as players explore a hazy, surreal world, discovering interesting sounds. You gradually build up a library of the games samples. Crack open your sequencer and the audio of the game comes to life. Allowing players to use your samples in any combination you like. From mellow, dusty rollers, to upbeat, acid house, Beat The Game’s intuitive sequencer ensures every combination sounds good—it’s just a case of creating something that fits your mood. With a cast of warm, funny characters and a visual style that draws on classic animation, Beat The Game feels timeless, a journey about the joy of creating music.

manifold garden coming to linux soon mac windows games steam

Manifold Garden is an exploration-puzzle game coming to Linux, Mac and Windows. Since the games developed in Unity 3D, currently under development by William Chyr. Which is going to release in 2017, soon via Steam.

So gameplay puts the player in a universe with a different set of physical laws. While set in an Escher-esque world filled with secrets and mysteries. Players will have to utilize a unique gravity-manipulation mechanic to turn walls into floors. Since you will have to learn to see the world through whole new perspectives. Navigating through mindboggling architecture and solving seemingly impossible puzzles.

Manifold Garden Features

  • A unique gravity-manipulation mechanic that allows players to walk on any visible surface.
  • An expansive and beautiful world filled with secrets for players to explore.
  • Mindbuggling Escher-esque architecture.
  • Original soundtrack

Personally I love the idea of the mind bending means of physics. That and the exploration puzzle features to keep the player thinking. Since the games look is similar to Block’hood and the feel of something new.

So the whole project kicked off in November 2012. Developer William Chyr began working on Manifold Garden. Since the project was called Relativity.
William Chyr started by using the basics of game development and the Unity3D engine. While drawing inspiration from various physics thought experiments over Thanksgiving weekend. Yet the early version of the game for playtesters and the encouraging feedback pushed the idea further.

In 2013, Chyr was awarded a six-month artist residency at the Swatch Art Peace Hotel in Shanghai, China. This gave him the opportunity to focus on development of the game full-time. While taking it to a level that demonstrates many of the core ideas of the project.

In October 2013, Chyr returned to Chicago, where he has continued to work on Manifold Garden since. Followed by Indie Fund support in 2015.

So today Manifold Garden is still in development and coming soon. Since the games listed via Steam, yet no release date has been set. Yet coming to Linux, Mac and Windows.
