The Music of Erich Zann

The Music of Erich Zann, coming soon to Android, iOS, Windows Phone 8 and Windows Store, is a game base on a story by H.P. Lovecraft of the same name. It’s a story about a mute viola player who fight mysterious forces from behind his windows by playing wild tunes with his viola, and if you’re not familiar with the story, don’t worry because the app comes packed with the story as an illustrated audiobook.


Based on the story, we made a music-driven game where you stop incoming notes and collect powerups by selecting the appropriate horizontal line before they reach the other side of the screen. Miss a note, and the line becomes blocked for a few seconds, and miss an Evil eye symbol, and it’s game over. The gameplay is driven by the soundtrack, reading the pitch and changes in volume, and the player can even supply his own music to play against.
