In the game, players can also change the speed and direction of particles they encounter to create musical harmony while various controls allow players to modify trajectory and timing, and control acceleration of the flow to quickly fill containers and create a symphonic masterpiece.
Auditorium was originally introduced as an online game and discovered through indiePub Games, a community of independent video game developers, as part of an indie game development competition. Zoo Games will be introducing it as downloadable content for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 consoles this fall.
