I dont quite recall how this game evolved but the main motivation behind it is to improve cognitive processing and attention by getting the players to focus on a sequence of drum hits and then repeat that sequence. Players can use either dance-dance-revolution mats or a custom built 4-pad bongo style controller. Its being built for www.tulgeywood.us to give a little background to the target players/users
I was very fortunate to come across a talented game developer in the UK who has similar interests. http://www.funpods.com/ we got talking and within a week he had turned out this fantastic virtual drum. We’re going to hold off on releasing the source code for now as its still in development but you can play our working demo using the keyboard rows (qwertyui) for player 1 and (asdfghjk) for player 2.
