This is a really interesting concept. I kind of feel like it's almost too easy if you have music theory knowledge, but in that regard, it's also pretty educational (though I think there are solutions that don't line up with the scale? I'm not sure how your game checks the solution.)


In the beginning, I just tried out different setting options without any system, but then I gradually tried to figure out how two of the pianobots could easily play together and if it sounded somewhat harmonical. Then I tried the same with a third (or fourth) pianobot. :D All in all, this was a nice, systematic audio-puzzle game that tried something different, and I thought that was very good! :D That's why I recommended your Ludum Dare 42 entry in one of our compilation articles about the jam. One minute of gameplay can also be seen in the accompanying video. :)

Best wishes,


Thank you Sebastian!
I'm glad you liked it. After all, there are things that need to be fixed and made more clear but I'm happy you enjoyed it!
Thanks for the recommendation! You have very interesting games in these articles, you got a new follower :)
