Cosmic DJ has been a GL33k passion project for about a year now. In the game you take on the role of the "Cosmic DJ of Legend". You travel throughout the galaxy traveling through your hidden memories to reveal the secret of the universe (heavy I know). The game is ultimately about music creation and giving players a palette that will allow them to easily express themselves without the constraints of learning a DAW (Digital Audio Workstation). It is my hope that users will find Cosmic DJ an enjoyable experience that inspires them to look into the deeper tools of the trade. This one has been an extreme challenge but incredibly rewarding. As an audio team creating our own game has taught us a lot about the development process. In it's own way it has helped our team become much better at audio since we've now seen the "other side" of development and experienced it firsthand.
At IndieCade 2011 we were lucky enough to meet some of the nice folks over at Tiny Speck. It took a lot of conversation and a lot of back and forth but we eventually decided to collaborate on a music app that would somehow work within the world of Glitch (RIP). The project ended up being a very fun collaboration and the end product is something that we're pretty happy with. Users can place band members in a scene and modify their sounds, what they are playing and their volume. The creative possibilities are vast and music creation with the Glitchamaphone is a fun and relaxing endeavor.
