Audiosurf and TraxSurf

Posted Friday, March 14th, 2008 9:25:00 am
Check out Audiosurf when you get a free moment. It's a game that takes your MP3 music and makes "tracks" out of them that you "surf". There are various modes, but the most common is a match three puzzler where you have to pick up the right blocks at the right time to score the most points.

It's really fun. Especially for those who make music!

I've had a blast running my songs through Audiosurf, especially Cent Main Theme and Deadly Drums: Extended Mix, both of which are pretty difficult for me. You can also run other people's songs through it, and it gave me an idea...

That idea is TraxSurf. Since I already listen to all of the songs on Trax in Space, I should be able to pick out 5 songs every week that can be used towards a weekly Audiosurf competition. So I started coding it, and a lot of that code is already on the SVN. It shouldn't be too long before I have a completed web site, but as with all of my own projects lately, it seems to be taking a longer than expected to finish.

In any case, this is going to be a fun side project to work with, and hopefully it will pick up steam when it's released. I'm looking forward to it.
