Here is a great video where Jon Mak walks us through using the Sound Shapes level editor on the Playstation Vita.
This is a very cool tutorial in which Jon makes creating your own levels and sound design in Sound Shapes look easy & sound great. He includes objects & music to his design from the various artists that contributed to the game, including Superbrothers, Deadmau5, Beck and Pixeljam.
Pixeljam entities are make an appearance around 2:30 or so in the video.
Sound Shapes is scheduled for a mid-August release for PS3 and PS Vita. Here's another link with more info: http://blog.us.playstation.com/2012/08/01/sound-shapes-preorder-level-editor-and-trophy-mode-detailed/
Well, the secret has been out for a couple months that we've been one of the guest artists collaborating on Queasy Games upcoming Sound Shapes for the Playstation Vita and the PS3. You may know Jon Mak/Queasy Games from such fine games as Everyday Shooter.
Recently at E3 there was finally an official announcement for a release date for Sound Shapes for mid-august. You can read the full Sony release here, written by Matthew Kumar, who we worked closely with on designing our levels & entities & keeping it all super-tight.
More exciting news is that the 'Album' (a set of levels pairing particular visual artists and musicians together) that Pixeljam has been working on is scored with music samples & beats by Deadmau5. It sounds pretty great. Here are some links to the original announcement of our collaboration, with some video footage:
Other artists included in Sounds Shapes are Superbrothers + Jim Guthrie. It appears that the remaining artists and musician pairings are as yet un-announced, so, I guess that's all I can say.
Sound Shapes itself is a whole lot of fun to play. All the Albums are all very unique & different experiences, yet still based on the same very simple gameplay mechanic & goals. It's impressive. I (Rich) really look forward to playing it and will actually be picking up a PS Vita to do so properly. If I wind up making new levels with the Vita editor I'll be sure to let people know & share them with the Sound Shapes community.
