Signal to Noise is a music-driven rail shooter, heavily inspired by classic games such as Tempest 2000, Starfox, and Rez (among others). The player selects their own music from their personal library, or even live music, the game analyzes that music in realtime, then generates the gameplay based off the music.

This is a game meant to remind players why they love video games. The entire design is based around having memorable "moments" that stick with players after they're done playing with their favorite music.

Hi all,

This is David from Solanimus, developers of Signal to Noise. Just wanted to make sure our IndieDB wasn't making it look like the game was cancelled. It most certainly is not! We've been working hard on it, and have sort of been living that for a while. Soon (don't you hate that word?) we'll be showing a new trailer for the game. You can get an updated alpha now on Desura, so please do that to support development until we can finish (you also get the game cheaper that way).

The game is coming to Nintendo's Wii U console as well as one of the launch systems (alongside desktop platforms). Yes, the game is planned to be moddable even on console.

Check out our website anytime and keep up to date with Signal to Noise!

It looks interesting, I like games that run on music that I choose.
Tracking! :)

Found a new pretty significant bug, but will get to it. This delays the uploading of the new alpha.

The latest build (v0.46) is ready for Windows but not yet for Mac. Will upload both soon.

Next alpha update will be either later this week or over the weekend. The tutorial's been redone and some color changes have happened to make the game clearer, among other things.

Ok so some more changes are being made until we update the current available build. You'll be glad that we waited. It shouldn't be more than a few days.

Thoroughly impressed.

Can you consider _please_ that there's a balls-out 100% option so that it responds to music full-color-to-black, much more than, say, Sequence, Beat Hazard, The Polynomial.

Some of us want to listen to AC-DC or Kraftwerk and be in the abyss, total blackness, lost without The Beat. We haven't had this, not yet.

Repeat after me: Sleep Dep Is Good. Sleep Dep Is My Friend.

Could you go into more detail? What do you mean exactly by "so that it responds to music full-color-to-black?? We'll get to work on it if you want it, man.
