Contrary to public belief, I have made prototypes these 2 months, but I just didn’t have enough time to finish them. Anyway, this months EGP theme caught my attention. Art game. Nice. So I started working on my prototype. Interacting with a computer via microphone has always amazed me, so I tried to integrate that in my game.  This is what I came up in 7 days.

This game is to be played using a microphone. Without one, you will not be able to play.

As a suggestion, you could blow in the microphone for a quick and easy move 😉

noise in microphone – move
left, right – turn
up, down – change color
space – paint

Please make sure your microphone is on “loud” 🙂


If you have problems getting the game to run I’d suggest installing the newest DirectX 9.0c drivers, XNA 3.1 and making sure you have .net framework 3.5 installed.
