FRACT 'music exploration game' coming to PC on April 22

Described as a "musical exploration game," FRACT is finally coming out on April 22. According to developer Phosfiend Systems, players will explore an "unfamiliar landscape to discover the secrets of an abandoned world that was once built on sound." By solving puzzles, you'll bring the world back to life and create music in the game.

Indie Jeff saw it more than two years ago, and was impressed (and intimidated?) by the game's unique musical creation tools.

FRACT OSC 'the intersection of traditional puzzle mechanics with creative musical tools'

Indie developer Phosfiend Systems had been working on its musical puzzle adventure game FRACT for a couple of years now. Recently rechristened as FRACT OSC, the first-person game with a Tron-like aesthetic has evolved quite significantly since the initial prototype demo was released back in 2010. Hot on the heels of an impressive new video diary that was recently unveiled (check it out for yourself, below!), I reached out to Phosfiend Systems' founder Richard E. Flanagan to suss out some details about the game's rather dramatic improvements, which include synthesizing the game's musical components in real-time.
