Introducing .detuned

92 5

.deTuned

It’s Rusty Buchert from SCEA Santa Monica again and I’m here to talk to you about another experiment from the demoscene that will be coming down the pipeline later this year. This one is called .detuned and is made by .theprodukkt, who has been involved in the demoscene for quite a while now. They have done some interesting pieces, which includes .kkrieger, an FPS that is all done with one 96k file.

.detuned is a bit of an odd beast that offers an abstract and surreal interactive experience like nothing else. It is not exactly a game or an art piece like Linger in Shadows. It allows you to create your own visual to accompany your favorite music tracks on the XMB, and using the SIXAXIS™ Wireless Controller, you will be able to manipulate the given scene by interacting with and modifying a man and his world. It even lets you tweak your music as you play with it.

Check out some of the photos below.

  • When are we getting the GPS accessory for PSP over here? I just put $60 down on the japanese one because I’m tired of waiting for you people.

  • That last picture reminds me of a Death From Above 1979 album. (with the elephants)

  • Can I have it now?

  • Will it be possible for it to use the playstation eye?

  • Very strange looking…

  • Looks interesting.
    Lets see if they can pull it off as well as they sold it off here =]

  • You got my money… I just need a release date.

  • I love demoscene.

    Real demoscene.

  • Is this going to sit under the Music category of the XMB or under the Game one like Linger in Shadow?

  • Sounds good when will it come out?

  • niceee!

    more plz

  • Well, it’s about time. It’s INSANE that the built in visualizers on the PS3 don’t use the SIXAXIS at all… like, come on guys. It’s disappointing overall how little interaction there is.

    SHOW US WHAT THE PS3 CAN DO, PEOPLE!

  • This looks TRIPTASTICALLY FUN!!!

  • This sounds fantastic! Hopefully, you’ll be back with more details, soon.

  • Nice to hear from you again, Rusty. I found LIS to be quite a unique experience and am always on the lookout for new info on anything else you guys might be working on.

    Am excited to hear about .deTuned and look forward to more info soon!

  • Interesting style. Instant buy.

  • OMG that FPS looks amazing!! I was thinking it would look kinda assy, but no it looks really good!! Bring it to psn!!

  • I agree with #30, i’d rather look at a woman lol

  • first thing that came to mind was blue man group! sounds pretty awesome.

    peace,
    Lh

  • I LOVE UNIQUE CONCEPTS LIKE THIS!

    I was sold since I saw the first screenshot! lol

    (This was “teased” in an older episode of Qore!)

    I can’t wait to experience this awesome new title! I love this kind of stuff! It seems like a very neat concept, and it’s so… DIFFERENT!

    I’m starting to uncontrollably smile excessively! lol

    CAN’T WAIT! :D

  • I’m extremely stoked for this. Interactive arts (via “video games”) need more credibility, and there have been some interesting PSN titles that have really up’d that. Keep pushing the boundaries!

  • Will we get a playstation music download service?
    Thats the last main addition we need on the playstation store.

  • daym it looks trippy!

  • Thanks Rusty.

    This looks to be an interesting item.

    When is is out and is there a price yet ?

  • Always been a fan of FarbRausch’ productions – will keep an eye on this.

  • I liked Linger in the Shadows so I’m interested in this. Besides, Trophies are always welcome :p

  • Looks very good. :)

  • Having followed, and enjoyed the demoscene since the Commodore 64 days this will be a day one purchase for me. I think it’s awesome that Sony as well as the Demoscene are working together to help make the PS3 the best console on the planet.

  • they need to have a better music player/organizer on ps3 bcuz the xmb is horrible if u have a lot of music saved on ur hard drive

  • You have my attention.

    Now tell me more.

  • Awesome news! .theprodukkt have amazed me with their demos and what they can do with such a small file size. Great to see Sony take risks with innovative ideas such as this :)

  • Custom Music player + Custom Visualization + Some trippy experiences = priceless

    *or 2.99-4.99CDN

  • I have no words for it, such originality!

  • Wauw…seems interesting! If it’s priced like Linger in Shadows, I’ll take it…

  • SCEA YOU SHOULD CONCENTRATE ON BRINGING THE NAMCO ARCADES OVER HERE WITH XMB SUPPORT FOR ALL OUR GAMES IN HOME AND THE PSN NETWORK! ITS NOT FUNNY ANYMORE YOU HAD 2 1/2 YEARS TO BRING THIS TO US BUT I’M GUESSING YOU DON’T CARE..PATHETIC!..BY THE WAY THE ONLY WORTH MENTIOING ARCADE GAME WOULD BE ICE BREAKER AND THAT TRAIN GAME THE REST IS CRAP!!

  • @85

    Insightful.

  • If it’s $2 and more interactive than Linger in Shadows, SOLD.

    Otherwise, meh.

  • Little treats like this are the reason I love the PSN. Top quality games, videos and demoscene bits, incredible. LiS is still one of my favorites.

    Here’s hoping more of the demoscene gets to participate and the PS3 becomes the hardware of choice for demo groups. BTW kkrieger was amazing, that was the first thing I thought of when I heard theprodukkt was involved. An FPS game with fully procedural generated textures in a measly 96k file.

    Might want to encourage someone to work on more interesting visualizations for the XMB while you guys are at it. :)

  • I’ll drop a couple of bucks on this DigitalDali

    @85 This product isn’t made by NAMCO or SONY.

  • Awesome :D I want it NOW! :D

  • LOST me @ like “Linger in Shadows”..unless this is a freebie..

  • Would be nice to see a authoring tool for PC and a demoplayer for PS3.

    That would add some usergenerated content.

  • In the PS2 and PS3 I really missed the music visualizer that was available in the original Playstation. You could move objects around in a variety of ways. I had a lot of fun with that when I was younger.

    This looks like something I would have gotten into back then. I’m not sure that it appeals to me now that I’m older, but I think it’s great that it’s being made for the current generation.

  • Hi All,

    I am sorry for being delayed getting back to you all. I was in quarentine for a bit last week over the whole swine flu thing. Good news is I’m clean, just lost a few days. :S

    Cheers

    Rusty

  • lol sorry about the whole pandemic thing Rusty. It must have been a hassle.

  • hey i was woundering there was a sneak peak of this in a episode of qore with some pics like this but also so planets…. is this same game or different and if so what info can you give on it please.. Thanks

  • This looks really interesting, will love playing with it.

    On a similar note, can’t we also have a visualiser that’s like g-force, the xbox one, etc? I’d really like this.
