Yep, been busy over at Bag of Games  Hey, gives me an excuse to wind down with a videogame in the evening.  This week’s entree was a fun little indie game with retro graphics that has you exploring an island as it morphs through the seasons.  The part I liked was how its minimalist sound track would pick up themes depending on where and what you were exploring.  I couldn’t help but be reminded of “In C” by Terry Riley, with its score added to and changed at the player’s whim–  a sort of composer driven form of improvisation.  Janet and I actually made a videogame based on In C, but it’s in Director so I’m not really sure how to put it online.
Anyway, Proteus is worth a look
