Hi everybody!
I want to share my new project with you, i call it T.I.M.E - The Interactive Music Experience.
The game is a 1st person point and click puzzler that incorporates my album Forgotten Melodies music in it (Guitar Driven Instrumental - Rock/Metal/Progressive).
There is no story line, you wonder around the house and solve puzzles, for each puzzle you solve you get to listen to a track from my album and get a little piece of information about the track.
There are and there will be more information, photos and clips scattered around the house.
There are 5 puzzles/songs so far out of 9 and possibly a bonus track i'll record especially for the game.
So give it a try, the game and the music are free for you pleasure!

Let me know what you think of the concept, the game, the design and of course the music :)

Also, bugs, suggestions and ideas are more than welcome, ENJOY!

Last thing, for some reason Chrome has a problem with playing and loading music, so i suggest you use Firefox or IE.

It is a good idea. I recommend you try to add a story. If you create a concept album, where the songs lead the history and have some influence on the gameplay, you will have a really nice game in hand.

Hi Gurrufio,
Thank you for sharing your thoughts!

I am thinking about adding a storyline to it, but let me explain a couple of things.

First, my music is instrumental, so i am not sure if it's possible to make a concept album without lyrics, i can have some recurring melodies and themes, but still there is a limitation to how much i can tell with just music.

Second, the purpose of this "game" was to get another way/channel to showcase my music, at first i thought about just creating a playlist app, than i thought why not make it into an explorable environment, then i decided to add some puzzle to give it a little more edge, but the bottom line is to get more people familiar with my debut album, Forgotten Melodies.

I am not saying i wont make another album in the future and when i will i will take the "game" aspect into more consideration, but making another album takes a lot of time and resources, so i am afraid it's not an option for this project, but T.I.M.E part 2 will come eventually...

In the meanwhile i will try to come up with a storyline that will fit the current game and album, i'll share it with you when i'll have it.

Thanks,
Avishay Mizrav.

Hi again,
So I took Gurrufio notes into consideration and i added a storyline,
There is a new playable intro section, to get you into to the mood.
The plan is to reveal a little bit more of story with each puzzle you solve.
Puzzle 8 is done but not incorporated in the game yet, i'll be working on the new room for it probably tonight and upload an update in the next few days, i will also add more of the storyline with that update.

If you already played the game, don't forget to clear the app cache and hard refresh the page to get all the new data.

Cheers.

I don't know why it took me so long, but i added autosave + load.
So from now on, no need to replay from the start and you can listen to the music you already collected at anytime :)

More updates...

I made a new first puzzle, since the previous one wasn't much of a puzzle.

Added about 50% of the storyline (goes on till after puzzle #5).

The autosave, saves after completing a puzzle, you can use, S and L, to save and load manually to a separated slot at any time.

Puzzle #9 is done, but not yet incorporated in the game.

The online link is updated and here is a P.C version:

Hi everybody!
Just finished adding the final 9th room+puzzle+song, this means all the rooms/puzzles and my entire album is available in the game.

But that doesn't mean i'm done, so what's left to do:

1. finish and polish storyline (50%).
2. add some bg music and sfx.
3. add some more interaction with objects.
4. tweak graphics.
5. tweak UI.
6. add facts sheets for songs 6-9.
7. make a small playable action scene for the finale, play against the villain.
8. possibly record a bonus track.
9. possibly do voiceovers.

If you have any comments or ideas i would love to hear them and now is the time!

Both online and PC versions links are updated.

Enjoy!
