Music of the Spheres is a puzzle-shooter about bouncing bullets, Islamic art, and sound. In it you can fire bullets which bounce, and when they bounce, a specific glockenspiel note is played.

That simple premise gives rise to a lot of strategies, and the levels are designed to bring those strategies out. The way they do that is more “puzzle” than “shooter” - the game does not require many reflexes or risks. It just requires thoughtfulness and precision. It is intended express things concisely, and wordlessly - you do not have to be able to speak any language in order to play this game.

“There’s a beauty in the apparent simplicity of the design, which like much that is contemplative is far more complex than it first appears. It’s somehow reassuring to play a puzzle game that is entirely disinclined to frustrate, hoping to create mindful, soothing spaces instead.” ~Adam Smith, Rockpapershotgun

Any plans for a demo? Your game plays really, really well and I'll include it in my next months thread of Indie Games:http://www.neogaf.com/forum/showthread.php?t=532236, but usually games with at least a free demo get way more attention.

@VideoDreaming @bahrami_ No, something else. I can't commit either ;) as I say, funding proposal. Apr 16 2014, 10:16pm
@snookersession Fill in your gaps of Charlie Kaufman and Martin Scorsese Apr 16 2014, 6:17pm
@PercyBlakeney63 Well remember, @bahrami_ is the one in charge! His game :D I just do the pitches Apr 16 2014, 3:37pm
@jennatar No problem. I'll say tho that this would be in 2015, and you at least know some people I know. And you'd be paid #ifthatwasntclear Apr 16 2014, 12:42pm
@jennatar Hey, was your voice work a one off or is there any chance you'd be interested in voicework for a puzzle game? Apr 16 2014, 12:27pm
@VideoDreaming :D Awesome. Mind if I ask what your rate is (hourly/per effect/as makes sense to you)? Putting together a funding proposal :X Apr 16 2014, 12:23pm
RT @Kotaku_UK: A beautiful feature from @dnjowen about how Islamic art can influence game design: T.co T.coApr 16 2014, 10:05am
@VideoDreaming Hey, loved your work on Antichamber. I don't suppose you do contract sound design/are likely to be doing it in 2015? Apr 16 2014, 9:45am
@dnjowen Also your metaphor at the end is *not* a stretch, in my opinion. It's a great analogy that I've considered a lot. Apr 16 2014, 7:08am
@dnjowen Really good article, thanks a lot! Apr 16 2014, 7:04am
