Wave Trip – Generative music combined with familiar gameplay

wave_trip_lucky_frame_03

Latest project from Lucky Frame combines generative music and familiar gameplay. As with their previous releases, Pugs Luv Beats and Bad Hotel, Wave Trip is a music game where the focus is on creation. The structure of the levels is inspired by traditional music sequencers, and remixing and creating level is very similar to making electronic music. The end result sees music and play fully intertwined and complemented by gorgeous graphics and fun gameplay.

You control a mysterious and wonderful geometric astronaut as she travels through worlds of unimaginable beauty and danger, saving her friends through the medium of awesome tunes. All of the worlds can be remixed , letting players create their own levels and share them with the world. Since every object in Wave Trip has musical characteristics, creating a level is just like writing a piece of music – just easier (and with more creepy enemies).

The game is now available on the AppStore for both iPhone and iPad.

Game design, programming: Jonathan Brodsky
Sean McIlroy: Artist, designer
Yann Seznec: Sound design
