Concept Game Idea – A musical real-time strategy game!
So here is a game idea that I’ve been working on. The inspiration came from looking at build-orders in starcraft, and thinking about how we can use that to generate tunes. This simple prototype is still in the extreme early stages, but it’s enough to get a feel for what some RTS generated music might sound like.
Click on a circle to build a building. The resource bases generate up to 5 gatherers each, which play notes in the gathering song. If you build a baracks (Drum track!) – they will send out swarms of marines armed with notes from Ode to Joy. It takes a while to process the sound waves, so expect a little bit of lag when it starts up. The game uses AS3SFXR for its sound engine – http://www.superflashbros.net/as3sfxr/
