Deadmau5 will be creating some exclusive new tracks for Sound Shapes for the Vita.
Scheduled for release in 2012, Sound Shapes is equal parts musical instrument and game. Users can play through a single player campaign mode or compose original music and levels, all of which utilize the PS Vita's front touchscreen and rear touch panel. During gameplay, explore a musical world in the form of a classic 2D side scroller, where every action creates a unique game sound track. During creation, players can lay down collectible notes and samples, as well as musical game objects and hazards. Players can then upload and share their creations with the community via the PlayStation Network (PSN). Since music creation in the game is so much like creating digital music, Deadmau5 has utilized Sound Shapes' innovative technology to create a selection of exclusive tracks to be played out in the single player campaign, as well as allowing users to create new music and levels with his custom beats.
