We’ve been celebrating a big birthday lately – Sound Shapes turned one! At the age when we were wearing diapers and barely crawling, our strange musical platformer has been out in the real world making things happen.
First he came back with some good reviews, then a bunch of awards, and now he’s hanging out with thousands of friends making levels. Who knew our little game would be so driven? As parents, it’s real nice to see.
During this birthday celebration we have lots going on, and you’re invited to the festivities. Have a look.
We’re holding a level design/jam competition. To participate, create and upload a level highlighting what you love about Sound Shapes and hashtag the title with #BDay. Upload your level by 30th August, 2013*. Winners will be announced soon with the launch of the next Milkcrate.
The top six creators will receive a signed, screen printed Sound Shapes poster and will be included in a special 1 Year Anniversary Milkcrate album which will be a permanent part of the Sound Shapes community.
One last thing before we light the candles… A huge thank you to the guys and gals who make the thousands of levels that consistent blow our minds. Jool, Beej, Gasssst, Gez, Daft, Bleu, Dude, Pika, Amrods, A45, PopTarts, TTough +++ so many more… you’re awesome!
If you haven’t explored the Community yet, have a look at The Milkcrate. It’s a collection of the best Community levels curated around a particular theme or by guest curators (like Baiyon, Ghostly Records, Gamespot, and The Verge) and is a great place to start.
Ok, this is a long post so we’ll tie it up here. Thanks to everyone who supported us this past year – it means a lot. Keep playing, keep creating, and stay tuned, we have many more announcements coming soon.
