postvinyl1.jpgpostvinyl2.jpgOn a hardware level the game is a hybrid of a digital computer with analogue sound modifications, content wise it is a hybrid of an exploratory 3D shooter with tunnels and corridors and a DJ performance set-up. The users is a virtual DJ who can start and stop vinyl records by jumping on the record players, picking up records and placing them on turntables. Moreover, special sound guns allow them to place spatialized sound sources in the environment.
