Color. art inside…

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.Β  This is what I came up in 7 days.

7-day game by Alin Baciu

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 πŸ˜‰

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

Please make sure your microphone is on “loud” πŸ™‚


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.

    I like the way you blended all the things: music, sounds and colors in a beautiful game. It really caught me up. Also I like the drawing, did you make it?

    OFF: I wonder why u switched to XNA?

    • well, thank you for you comment. I’m glad you like the game πŸ™‚ Only some of the drawing are mine. the other ones cam be found on Google :). as for the switch to XNA, it’s because I was testing the microphone thing for another game, which is supposed to be in XNA. I only do stuff in XNA when I don’t have a choice πŸ™‚

    Well, now, try to make it multilayer. It would be fun if it was a race, too. Imagine each player screaming: go! go, damn it! in the microphone louder and louder to be faster.

    I really like it, it’s fun!

    Love the game! Its really cool! However, are there really extra colors? I didn’t find any.

    • hello! glad you like the game:)you’re the first one asking about this. it’s sort of an Easter egg:) there aren’t any more colors, cause I ran out of time:)

  5. I couldn’t find the extra colors either, but I did find the end text, which was good because if I hadn’t I would have run off the end and felt like the game was broken or something. πŸ™‚
    I liked it overall, blowing continuously was annoying, and felt like I was just pushing another button. So, it could have been a bit more experimental. Good enough art and music and unique presentation to keep me interested to the end, so that’s something. πŸ™‚
