The level editor in Sound Shapes is pretty damn rad. I used the tools from the PlayStation 3/Vita music-based platformer to recreate a shot I filmed of a lovely skyline in downtown Los Angeles, Calif. Then, I used my computer to blend that original video with a recording of a quick run through the stage.
The result is something like what I used to fantasize about as a kid. As I would stare out of the school bus window, I’d imagine my favorite video game characters interacting with everything we passed. In this case, the little amoeba-ball thing from Sound Shapes is rolling around my city.
If you want to take the stage for a spin (though I warn you in advance, it isn’t terribly long or difficult), find my PSN account, “Aquma”, through the game.
