Hey everyone! Sound Shapes just passed its 3rd anniversary and today we’re celebrating our awesome community of players who have continued to blow our minds with creative levels.
First, to everyone that downloaded the game for free during the PS Plus promotion in September, welcome! We hope you enjoy the game, it’s been awesome to see a ton of new creators building cool levels. Fun fact: during the month of September, we averaged 200 new levels per day! Even if you’re not into making levels, there are still a ton of great new levels to play.
We’re celebrating this momentous occasion with six new Milkcrate albums of curated community levels from the creators of the game. Creating Sound Shapes was truly a collaborative effort, and it’s been special to have everyone back to see how the game has evolved since launch. Needless to say, a few minds were blown!

In other good news, we’re having a huge sale this month where all Sound Shapes DLC is 50% off in the month of September, including the Ultimate Bundle (game + all DLC) and Add-On Bundle (all DLC).
We’ve also lowered the price of the core game permanently to $9.99 (previously $14.99) and that is one price for all three platforms (PS4, PS3, PS Vita).
