Please list any pre-made art/music/other assets that you used.
The music and sound effects were all pre-made. Thanks to the US Army Blues for their jazz covers, and freesfx.co.uk for sound effects. All other art was made (poorly) by us!

Anything you want to say to players before they play?
The game is aiming to capture the triumphant feeling of the final scene in Whiplash. The controls are done to be a finger-twister on the keyboard, where each key must be held down (and remain down) to properly spell out positive words/jazz words/instrument types. In this way, the same way Andrew felt nervous but had to keep telling himself he was the best and was going to prove Fletcher wrong the player must keep scoring 'positive words' and stay calm under the frantic pressure of the finger-twister and word search letters.
This is the prototype, and we know there may be some limitations to keyboards being able to hold down too many letters at once. Try doing smaller words in the longer ones if your keyboard can't get the whole word, i.e. ROCKING -> ROCK. If you can't use 'START' to start the game, use 'STA' as an alternative.
