Rowan Parker has dated the next PixelJunk game – 4am is out on the 15th of May. The interactive music visualiser will come with a free Viewer, too, and some lucky Plus subscribers will get an early look at the application from the 1st of May.
“We’ve created various different events you can choose from to play live,” he said. “Different events will present you with different mixes of songs, visualizers and a new mood to go with each one.”
“You then take this event live on PSN and make it your own, crafting and performing it however you want.”
Each of the five songs have four sets of instrument loops – drum, bass, rhythm and synth. You can loop these bits and add in one-shot samples, giving 160 different sound samples to pull from.
There are effects too – 16 simultaneously, and you can add in Move motion control to further adjust the music – in fact you can use two Move sticks. 4am can also visualise your existing music that’s already on your PS3, which looks interesting.
“A limited number of codes will be given to PS Plus members who own a Move,” say PlayStation, “allowing them to get a first taste of performing in 4am. There will also be a 4am Free Viewer beta download available to ALL PlayStation Plus members.”
