Video: Sony Wishes a Happy First Birthday to Sound Shapes

100°
68w ago - Sony's Mark Rabo of the Sound Shapes Team wished a very Happy Birthday to Sound Shapes who turns one this week.

To quote: We're celebrating a big birthday this week - Sound Shapes turns one! At the age when we were wearing diapers and barely crawling, our strange musical platformer has been out in the real world making things happen.

First he came back with some good reviews, then a bunch of awards, and now he's hanging out with thousands of friends making levels. Who knew our little game would be so driven? As parents, it's real nice to see.

During this birthday week we have lots going on, and you're invited to the festivities. Have a look.





Creator Contest

We're holding a level design/jam competition. To participate, create and upload a level highlighting what you love about Sound Shapes and hashtag the title with #BDay. Upload your level by August 19th, 2013. Winners will be announced soon with the launch of the next Milkcrate.

The top six creators will receive a signed, screen printed Sound Shapes poster and will be included in a special 1 Year Anniversary Milkcrate album which will be a permanent part of the Sound Shapes community.

Sound Shapes: Special Guests in the Milkcrate, Baiyon Interview

50°
78w ago - Today Mark Rabo of the Sound Shapes Team has shared details with some special guests in the Milkcrate and Baiyon interview below.

To quote: Everyone has the friends who know all the new bands and all the cool music, who make the mixtapes and the killer roadtrip soundtracks, the friends who you always ask, "What are you listening to?"

We made some good friends creating Sound Shapes, the kind of friends that are deep into games and music. So with Sound Shapes being all about games and music too, we just had to ask them, "So what are you playing?"

Our first Milkcrate release was March 12th and featured six albums we chose here at Queasy. For our second release we've asked our friends at The Verge, Gamespot, and Ghostly International to create Milkcrate albums with their favorite community-made levels.

Also invited was Japanese multimedia artist, Art and Music Director on [Register or Login to view links], [Register or Login to view links].

Here's our interview with him about his experience curating the Milkcrate.

Sound Shapes: What excited you about the Sound Shapes Milkcrate?

Baiyon: For starters, being able to work again with Shaw-han Liem was definitely one of the most exciting...
 

Video: Sound Shapes: Spring 2013 Has Sprung New DLC Arriving

100°
80w ago - Today Mark Rabo of the Sound Shapes Team posted up a video confirming that Spring 2013 has sprung with new DLC arriving as detailed below.

To quote: The sun is shining, the birds are chirping, and "wub" is in the air... and with the spring comes a new blast of Sound Shapes DLC.

Two unique sound packs are available right now and in just a couple weeks we're stuffing the Community Milkcrate with more albums from guest curators - more on that below after this brand new video showcasing our new 80's and Dubstep Sound Packs.

First the sound packs. The 80′s pack brings the synth-poppy melodies and digital drum beats inspired by the neon decade when big hair and leg warmers ruled the lands.

If that's too gaudy for you, dive into the dark and dirty world of the Dubstep Sound Pack with the lurching, wobbling, big bass drops straight from the streets of London. Will you dare to combine the two?

Both packs each include new notes, loops, five new Beat School levels, and five Trophies.





And later this month we roll out a special installment of the Milkcrate, our carefully curated collection of Community levels. What's so special? Well, we asked some of our favorite people to hand-pick...

Car Mini-Album & Creator Pack ($1.99)

Put on your driving gloves, there's a new vehicle in Sound Shapes and it changes everything! Speed, flip, loop, and jump your way through the levels and experience Sound Shapes like never before. We set out to make a platformer and created a trials game by accident. Yeah!

This pack includes new Campaign levels, a full Sound Pack, brand new editor entities (like loop-de-loops, speed boosts, and more), Beat School lessons, and trophies too.

The Community Milkcrate & Six New Albums (free update)

Perfectly sized to fit a record, the trusty milkcrate has been holding music collections for a long time and with the Community Milkcrate we're continuing that tradition. We've hand-picked eclectic and creative levels from the Community and arranged them into...
 

Video: Inside Skywalker Sound: Soul Sacrifice's Battle Theme Demo

50°
93w ago - Sony Producer Kumi Yuasa has shared a video demo which takes fans inside Skywalker Sound: Soul Sacrifice's Battle Theme below.

To quote: Back in December, we released a sneak-peek of the Skywalker Sound soundtrack recording video for Soul Sacrifice. As mentioned, the game's soundtrack is composed by [Register or Login to view links] and [Register or Login to view links], two of the most recognized composers in the industry.

Today. I'm excited to share a video introducing one of the scores Mitsuda-san composed:

Mitsuda-san was kind enough to provide us the following accompanying message:

"This was the very first battle music I composed, and I focused on making sure it fit the fighting theme of Soul Sacrifice. The battle style in this game is different from traditional RPGs and action games where the battles are not instantaneous, but rather extensive and you fight for a longer period of time.

Within those battles, you will face all sorts of situations where you can have the upper hand, or be at a disadvantage. So, in order to match these dramatic sequences, I concentrated on adding many different elements to each piece in order to create an exciting musical composition.
