Very interesting game! I included it in my A Game By It’s Cover 2018 compilation video series, if you’d like to take a look. :)

This is a pretty weird niche game, but I love it! My best decription would be "LSD Dream Simulator, but you also have a recorder and a mixing desk to create Musique concrète compositions."

A very creative and elaborate take on the Cartridge!

However, I have to admit that the gameplay mechanics are probably less intuitive to people who don't work with audio recorders, editors and sequencers. A little manual or tutorial would probably be helpful. And the "flange" effect is a bit drastic compared to classic tape flanging sounds or BBD flanger pedals. Sounds more like a vibrato to me.

Thanks so much for playing fricochet! That is high praise. 

A manual is a great idea and I think it would make a lot of sense considering hardware like what we have in the game really is this abstruse and often comes with deep and detailed manuals. As we continue to test and update the game, we will also be working to make the devices more intuitive as we go. 

Besides that, I will be creating more environments and hopefully reaching out to other creators and friends to help me make more content for the game. I think we are pretty set with the basic loop of exploration --> recording --> mixing.
