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.

Thanks for all of the good reviews on Moddb!! This version is now 1.404 BETA 2, and now the first level has music :) and the "sound paging" issues are gone, as well as the level2 SINX and ?? being slightly different. Now you can enjoy SYNTH's dynamic remixer. The dynamic remixer has more "functions" with the keyboard, but the game is really funner with the gamepad, I'd say,. I may add some more of the remix functions to the gamepad soon. Stay tuned.
