SYNTH is a new alternative video game for a high-end MS windows PC's. SYNTH was designed and developed by Rhys Paul Hovey. In it's current version (1.666) it has been over two years in the making. SYNTH is 100% mathematically / proceedurally generated. This means that for all of SYNTH's graphics and levels, there is a mathematical function or process from which it was made, making it a very difficult game to program, and in the end quite scalable and unusual. Typically the graphics in a video game are "modeled" by artists with mouse and pen-like touch pads. Everything in SYNTH has a mathematical / algorithmic representation.

Yes folks, still alive here, SYNTH is still on HOLD at version 1.666,. but it is STILL open, and very much under development, but mostly in the form of "DAMSIN MUSIC MACHINE" that is the "jukebox sound" engine for SYNTH's "real time" synthesizer. But man, it's a next gen platform, to go along with "SYNTH" at the same time. So this is going to be an 8 core / 6 core project, so stay TUNED. SYNTH has a whole "upper truss" layer, that is interactive coming to "further complete" the graphical experience. It's a must, but it's gonna need quite a bit more GPU than version 1.666. As anyone knows, the sound in SYNTH to be "up to par" needed an "entire mini-daw" build with mastering, that is now a "reality". {2 years}
The Background "jukebox" experience for SYNTH was a major "unfinished" part of the design.

Oh yeah, almost forgot, DMM is now running under "FREE BSD" as well, performing very well. So who knows what the (**)future of SYNTH/DMM with linux / apple / openGL / steamOS could BE. DMM for BSD has "retro EGA" graphics, which look like "3 other things from andromeda" :0
