Brought to us by the mind behind the PlayStation Network hit Everyday Shooter, Sound Shapes is a PlayStation Vita game many are pointing to prove the system’s promise of quality titles early in its lifespan. But a lot of people still seem to know little more than its title, which might have something to do with it being a bit odd to conceptualize.
Aside from the Vita’s touch capabilities abetting level creation, it’s also incredibly easy to test levels. A soft button on the touch screen immediately spawns your ball and you’re free to move the spawn point to whatever section of your level you’re working on if you only need to test those sections. In addition to making level creation a painless procedure, a lot of effort is being put in to make sure the community thrive. Much like LittleBigPlanet’s LittleBigWorkshop, Sound Shapes will be getting its own online community for creators to meet up, collaborate, and share their work. One other incredibly cool feature is that custom levels, should the creator choose to leave them unlocked, can be remixed by anyone in the community, with the product of the remix clearly directing back to give the original author their due.
