Hypnospace Outlaw, A Game Set in a Fake 90s Vaporware World, Has its Own Music Sequencer #MusicMonday
Hynospace Outlaw was released a couple years ago. The game takes place in an alternate internet past, and it feels like a freefall into the vapoware world of the 90s. And it’s got a music synthesizer as a reward. Here’s more from CDM:
Hypnospace Outlaw (macOS/Windows/Linux) is a little over a year old, but honestly, 2020 should be its year. The game answers the question “what if vaporwave released an entire fake operating system?” So you get a game set in a computer inside your computer. There’s a complete fake operating system, a bizarro Windows98/Amiga concoction with tune player and even a generative music tool, and some seriously psychotic pastel color combos. (It’s like all the color schemes you thought were totally unrealistic in the 90s got… merged.)….
But maybe what’s most bizarre and wonderful is that, after you finish the game, your fake OS and Internet live on. And they built their own authoring tools, so you can make your own fake homepage and … actually even sequence music. It’s Windows-only, but hey macOS, users, install Boot Camp before the “Apple Silicon” Macs take that away from you.
We are angry, frustrated, and in pain because of the violence and murder of Black people by the police because of racism. We are in the fight AGAINST RACISM. George Floyd was murdered, his life stolen. The Adafruit teams have specific actions we’ve done, are doing, and will do together as a company and culture. We are asking the Adafruit community to get involved and share what you are doing. The Adafruit teams will not settle for a hash tag, a Tweet, or an icon change. We will work on real change, and that requires real action and real work together. That is what we will do each day, each month, each year – we will hold ourselves accountable and publish our collective efforts, partnerships, activism, donations, openly and publicly. Our blog and social media platforms will be utilized in actionable ways. Join us and the anti-racist efforts working to end police brutality, reform the criminal justice system, and dismantle the many other forms of systemic racism at work in this country, read more @ adafruit.com/blacklivesmatter
