So while we’re putting the finishing touches to Frutorious, we thought we’d give everyone who downloads Frutorious one last little gameplay gift – an 80′s arcade game inspired endless mode!
It’s a timed race from checkpoint to checkpoint in which you’ll aim to get top of the score board!
Here’s a sneaky peaky video…
It’s not much to look at, but it’s crazy addictive.
What this also means, is as we’ve got to the stage where we’re indulging our silly retro whims like this, we must be getting closer to getting the game out!
Music is a very important part of the development process for us at Infinite State games. We always start our games at Infinite State Games by writing the theme tune.
It sounds like a curious place to start, but after we’ve thrown ideas around so that we have a nebulous concept of the game we want to make, we next go off and write the title screen music.
Herbert Spencer said ‘Music must take rank as the highest of fine arts – as the one which, more than any other, ministers to the human spirit’ – and we think that as much as concept art can spark the imagination into concepts and ideas, music is the best medium to get across an initial ‘feel’ for a game.
It’s not all that crazy, Spielberg always likes to start with a poster for his blockbuster movies. Whatever works for you is whatever’s best, and we find music is a great way to impart the proposed vibe of a game.
Today, we put the finishing touches on the Frutorious soundtrack. It’s a whimsical mixture of dub, g-funk, 8-bit cheese and folk music – and here it is presented in glorious stereophonic sound for your listening delectation!
Pop on your headphones or enjoy from any speaker to achieve a sense of mischief and merriment inspired by the music from Frutorious
