In Auditorium, players create music by bending dazzling rivers of light and color through brain-twisting puzzles across 15 “acts”, and over 70 puzzles. The primary goal: guide the flow of tiny audio-visual particles into different on screen “containers”. Light transforms into sound as players fill the containers. Given enough light, the containers will begin to sing together in a symphony, providing the ultimate harmony of flow. Players manipulate the speed and direction of particles using a variety of different “controls” in truly unique gameplay that must be experienced first-hand. Cipher Prime’s Auditorium site shares a unique sample of Auditorium gameplay here http://www.cipherprime.com/games/auditorium/.
Auditorium has earned high acclaim and multiple awards since its release, including the Interactive Media Awards esteemed Best in Class. Destructoid wrote: "I love music. I love videogames. Consequently, I love Auditorium" and MacWorld added "Auditorium is a really intriguing and addictive multisensory experience — part puzzle game, part light sculpture, part musical instrument." The game is now available for $6.99 for PC and Mac at Steam.
