140: a new game platform to induce synesthesia

140 is a an upcoming platform game developed by Jeppe Carlsen, creator of the puzzles for the critically acclaimed Limbo.

The game, which has already won two awards for audio design and technical excellence, uses a mix of evolving electronic music to create synesthesia as the player (an avatar changing from a triangle to a square to a circle according to the location) navigates a psychedelic world made of colourful landscapes.

“The challenge lies in syncing up your moves and jumps to the music-controlled elements”. Carlsen told Eurogamer. “The soundtrack evolves in each level as you progress, introducing new elements for you to tackle, and ultimately leads to intense rhythm-based boss fights”.
