New Sound Shapes update incoming!

Hey everyone! We’ve been working hard on our next update (our biggest one yet!) and it’s finally ready. With new levels, vehicles, creator content, offline play, and more musical/visual goodies than we can list, there’s something for everyone here. Hope you like it!

Car Mini-Album & Creator Pack (£1.19/€1.49)

Put on your driving gloves, there’s a new vehicle in Sound Shapes and it changes everything! Speed, flip, loop, and jump your way through the levels and experience Sound Shapes like never before. We set out to make a platformer and created a trials game by accident. Yeah!

This pack includes new Campaign levels, a full Sound Pack, brand new editor entities (like loop-de-loops, speed boosts, and more), Beat School lessons, and trophies too.

The Community Milkcrate & six new albums (free update)
Perfectly sized to fit a record, the trusty milkcrate has been holding music collections for a long time and with the Community Milkcrate we’re continuing that tradition. We’ve hand-picked eclectic and creative levels from the Community and arranged them into themed albums.

Each is presented in a brand new interface and comes complete with liner notes with insights and interesting things to check out while playing them, kinda like a director’s commentary for levels. We’re so blown away by what you guys are making that we wanted a way to properly showcase it. Oh… and the Milkcrate albums become part of the game so any levels selected are baked right into Sound Shapes.

The Milkcrate launches with six albums and 35 total levels and is included free in today’s patch update.

Offline play (free update)
You’ve been asking for it and it’s finally here. Sounds Shapes now has Offline Play. While connected to the Sound Shapes servers, select any community level, tap a button, and sync it. Now you can play your favorite levels whenever you want! (Offline Play is included free in today’s patch update as well).

  • I probably speak for everyone when I say that this would be awesome in the IGC, I finally played the demo yesterday and its rather fun

  • That’s excellent and will be purchased tomorrow, how many Levels are there in the car mini album!

  • 1# How about….you know just buy it? It’s well worth the money!!

    I will be sure to pick up the DLC tomorrow! The DLC looks pretty neat and it will be a great addition to the game.

  • i duno if i should get this or not it looks good but it takes alot to keep me entertained

  • Looks great. Will be getting it for sure.

    Nice work with the patch to. Thank you.

  • Awesome, I’ll be getting this for sure tomorrow :-) can’t wait!

  • Sounds perfect. New albums. Just keep ’em coming since the beats are great!

  • I can’t see how driving could possibly work well on SS, since the game doesn’t scroll. The problem is shown in the video: the car goes through a screen in a second or two, which is too fast to make meaningful interaction.

  • It might be surprising, but I request a sale *gasp* for Sound Shapes!
    North America had 2 such sales already, so it seems appropriate that we should get one too.

    Really funny is that nobody seems to know how, when (or why not) that game will be offered. During the first US sale the developers had no idea if or if not the sale would happen in Europe too and forwarded the question. Then you get Zach Wood who won’t say more than “No sale for Europe” and nothing beyond that. And from SCEE you’ll hear that nothing is planned yet, but they’ll look into it.

    Seriously, as a customer I have no reason to accept such hurdles. It doesn’t surprise me that sales are generally so rare and limited in scale, compared to Steam, if it requires that much “organization” and manpower.

  • Gotta back of Golwar here, I find it strange that US got a discount for so long and we only got a price raise recently for Soundshapes (in TR, at least). I’m really looking forward to getting it, but it doesn’t feel right until we get an offer, since US got it.

  • Any chance on discounting the original game for PS Plus members?

  • Mark Rabo replied the following on the US blog:

    Hey Golwar, I understand your frustration and the different things going on in different regions is definitely not ideal. That said, there’s pressure to balance everything around the world but that’s a long process. As for a sale, there are no plans for a Sound Shapes sale in any region. Sorry.

    I surely don’t blame the developers for that. But I’ll also clearly express that such circumstances are a reason for me not to spend any money. Yes, I’m probably too spoiled by Steam, but let’s face the fact that they are (or least soon will be, with the Steam Box) Sony’s competitor. Poor sales strategy = missed revenue options.
