Game: Artbeats

Explore the beautiful relationship between sound and color in this immersive musical experience. You play as a glowing orb that collects musical loops that each adds a layer of complexity to the composition. Different colors correspond to individual instruments, and a changing background corresponds to the subtle changes in harmony. Note: There's a known MIDI bug that causes the sound to cut out. It usually returns in about 10 to 30 seconds.


Approved for All Audiences: The game must not show any violence, not even cartoonish. Stepping on living mushrooms is off the list, as is killing any type of enemies, not even undead, though we know they’re already dead…

Really nice work. I've played this more than any other GGJ13 game so far. Love anything that involves collecting stuff that you tow behind you :)
