On The Go Piano

OnTheGo Piano is is a project for the Alt Ctrl game jam. The point was to build a game and a controller for it.

Step 1: dismantle

We went with a keyboard-based control and the OTG USB cable, which allows to connect it to a phone.

Step 2: put together

The controller is similar to Guitar Hero/Rock Band controllers, however this time it is a piano thing. The device provides a full octave, where the main notes and the minors are mapped on the same key and switched in the software.

Step 3: PROFIT!

The game was build in Unity and currently contains about 250 notes in 12 "songs". The more successful the player is the more difficult the game gets.
