Just listening to the sound bytes in this promo for the new Playstation game “Sound Shapes” makes me want to run out and get a Playstation. I’m praying they will come out with an app version of this.The game which is due out August 7th 2012 will feature songs by Beck written particularly for this game. So far Beck is the only musician we know of attached to this project, but if successful I’m sure there will be others. The project is being headed up by Canadian multi-media conglomerate Pyramid Attack.This looks and sounds totally immersive! I can’t wait!
Introducing Sound Shapes’ latest collaboration– a brand new campaign record called “Cities” including original music by Beck and level artwork by Pyramid Attack. Listen to the first track of Cities and see the game in action as we talk to Steve Wilson of Pyramid Attack about the process of turning Beck’s music not only into art, but play.
Equal parts instrument and game, Sound Shapes™ gives everyone the ability to make music. Play through a unique campaign that fuses music and artwork into a classic 2D
platformer. Create your own unique musical levels with all of the campaign content and share with the world. Sound Shapes creates an ever-changing musical community for everyone to enjoy at home on their PS3, or on the go with their PS Vita.
