  23. Augusto, I used a combination of a midi keyboard, some custom midi-generation code, Absynth, Garageband, and Reason. Some other things as well, but that’s most of it.

    “Is there more than one solution per level?”
    Why do you ask this?

    Is there any chance to have the soundtrack released?
    And about a level editor, will you create one?

  27. “Is there any chance to have the soundtrack released?”
    Not really. The music is part of the game.

    “And about a level editor, will you create one?”
    I have one already for my own use, and it’s pretty nice, but … making a level editor available for other people would involve a *lot* of work. No immediate plans.

    “I’m asking if there is more than one solution per level to find the other solutions after I have passed the level”
    Okay. I’m not going to answer the question.

    Thanks so much for a wonderful few hours of head scratching greatness! I loved every minute of it (especially the “Lesson” level). I accidentally saved half-sided to the end, because I couldn’t figure out how to even play the first level in the set, but I got it after beating the last sets.

    Aside from that frustration, I couldn’t be more happy with the game.

  61. Thanks. Okay, save-games are a little messy to transfer on windows – the save game information is stored in the registry.

    It should be stored under something like – HKCU\Software\increpare\English Country Tune

    regedit is the program for editing/browsing the registry. I haven’t used windows in a couple of years, but from what I recall it should be possible to copy/paste the data.

    Thankyou for bringing this game into the world. There is some kind of indescribable joy in playing this. I would love there to be some DLC / extra levels – the game is so perfect that you could just add content as it is.

    The core is brilliantly executed, but it’s the other stuff that makes me love it. The music is so incredibly atmospheric and dreamlike, it produces an instant meditative state, allowing the left brain to really work on the puzzle without right brain frustration. This is even better because you can level restart without the music restarting as well – flows on and on.

    Somehow, it also reminds me of Amiga puzzle games (maybe like marble madness without the madness) – but the best thing is how you coded the camera to follow the movements of the player – elegance.

    Thankyou so much for this.

    “Did I mention I would love more content?”
    I’m working as hard as I can (not as hard as I’d like, but as hard as I can) on a couple of new games. (I did make http://www.increpare.com/2012/06/puzzles , which has something in it like something from ECT ).

    Thanks for the reply.

    Yes, I thought the camera would have been hard to code. I struggled with the movement when it first switched to 3d, but at some point the concept clicked, and now I can whiz around without thinking, and the joy of moving in the world is a big part of why I like the game (it helped that I forced my self not to use the back button, but always restarted every puzzle instead, which made me learn much quicker).

    Thanks for the link to your other game, have downloaded and will play once ECT experience is finished.

    Not sure what others think, but I would happily throw cash at you if there was an ECT extra-levels/DLC since I love the world, the feeling of mind expansion and interface so much – I just think of those larvae and the “plop” of them dropping around the level and wish there was more like that… :-)

    Oh yeah – and now I remember what it reminds me of – Mindwalker on the Amiga (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WA1qz2QQ89E) – similar music and elegance, with a unique abstract world (Mindwalker a little more frantic though).

    No idea about the maths side of things (I did think about it). Now that I think about it, the half-sided stuff might have some things in common with http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Domino_tiling

    I spent a while trying to come up with something interesting to say about the resonator towers, and found some interesting relationships, but no real answers.

    Drod is awesome, but can take a little while to get into. Both of the above are more difficult than ECT – I haven’t finished either, but I did enjoy both of them quite a bit.

    Got this with the Bundle as well. Just wanted to say I am very impressed, and +1 to the more levels/level editor suggestions. The interface is so nice, and the mechanisms (especially the whale and the larva – those two are still my favorites) are just wonderful.

    I also played through your more recent “puzzles” release, and that was very well done as well.

    Sorry I forgot to mention this in the previous post, but I can hardly see the frozen repeater waves. I did most of those levels through guesswork and listening to the sounds. If you could change the colors when frozen (such as for the blue whales) that would help a lot.

    Sorry if this comment is spoilery!

  95. Thanks for the kind words, suddensight. Sorry to hear you had trouble with the frozen resonator waves – bit of a weird problem, though you’re not the first to have it – I’ll make a note to have a look at it for future patched releases (but probably not in the near future)

    This is the game that sold me on Humble Bundle 8. Thanks for making a new abstract puzzler, especially one with so much meat! ECT is not afraid to let the user “figure it out,” and it doesn’t mind making me walk away for a bit before solutions become apparent. This is incredibly refreshing in the modern age of hand-holding and wall-of-text tutorials. Thanks again for the good times. More like this! :)

    I got ECT via the Humble Bundle and loved it so much I just bought it on iOS.

    Is there any way to go back to the previous menu level on iOS? On PC/Mac you press ‘escape’ but I can’t find a way to do that my iPhone, so I’m trapped in a level.

    I’d like to second everything that Justin said above. I know this might sound like a bit much, but I think this might go down as my favourite game of all time. Just true bare-bone puzzles, simple rules, yet very complex. Took me 23 hours to beat and I loved ever thought-provoking minute of it. I don’t know exactly what it was, but I just enjoyed this game so much.

    It’s what got me to beat the average on Humble Bundle 8, like Justin said. I bought one for myself and one for my brother. Unfortunately though, I sent all of my money to the Electronic Frontier Foundation. I came to your site hoping to see a place I could donate some money to you directly. I’d buy an extra copy on Steam, but it’d be great if I could just throw some cash directly at you without Steam taking a chunk of it. Do you have any plans to put a little tip box on your site, or anything like that? Maybe you already have one and I just can’t find it?

  101. Kind of you to say, anon. There’s a donate button on the top of every page, if you want to send some dollars my way :)

    Ah, I see now. How silly of me; I had the request from increpare.com to paypal.com blocked. Thanks.

    Anyway, keep up the good work, man. Take it easy~

    This game is pure perfection: challenging, elegant, immersive, atmospheric, mind-expanding. Most treasured app on my ipad. It has not gotten nearly the level of attention it deserves. I’m walking through it now a second time with my 6-yr old daughter and am amazed at how quickly she is adapting to the three-dimensional thinking, thanks to the natural and intuitive interface. Congratulations and may your creative energies never run dry.

    took me a day or two, but i was able to get through everything and was greatly satisfied by the challenges and thinking required to get through them.

    one thing that really bothered me though is that you implement that editor for use in two of the puzzles but you don’t provide one for us to use!

    some kind of level editor would establish this game as a legacy, i feel, and allow a loyal community to grow around it and throw support your way. at the very least it would definitely guarantee my playing the game indefinitely and my support

    i’m very much so hoping you have something planned for this, and hopefully with these concepts because everything works so well, here.

    Still an awesome game. But most of my friends only play games on tablets or phones. Half of those use android and are missing out.

  106. “Half of those use android and are missing out.”
    Android isn’t a single platform, it’s a whole family of phones. It’s a full time job to get it working on those devices, and a part-time job to keep it working. I ain’t got time for that shit – windows/osx/linux/iOS are enough of a strain.
