Review: FRACT OSC photo
Review: FRACT OSC
by Alasdair Duncan

Although FRACT OSC is a music game, it doesn't fall into the two distinct genres that we're used to seeing. It's neither a rhythm game like Rock Band, Elite Beat Agents, or Rhythm Heaven and nor is it a title that uses your own music to create gameplay, like Audiosurf or Beat Hazard.

In fact, the game FRACT OSC resembles most closely is the indie exploration game MirrorMoon EP, which strands you on a desolate landscape with very little clues about what you should be doing to progress.

FRACT OSC shares some of the same problems as MirrorMoon but once you've worked out its secrets, it becomes a game that's worth exploring.

Game Music Lullabies album Prescription for Sleep coming soon

Sweet slumber comes with game music, I've found. I've always had sleeping soundtracks to listen to when I'm traveling or just need to chill out. I love to sleep to orchestral JRPGs, arranged albums, and 16-bit classics, and I...
