Interview co-founder Harmonix

Saturday, April 03, 2004

Over at GameCritics is an interview with Alex Rigopulos, co-founder of Harmonix. Harmonix created two of my favorite games of all time: Frequency and Amplitude (see a posting of mine on Amplitude). These games are just brilliant. The interview gives insight in the story behind Harmonix and its games and the future of Harmonix and rhythm games.

Where Frequency and Amplitude are all about: 'People didn't want to learn a bunch of new skills, so we decided to use [the gaming skills] that people already had and repurpose them onto the task of making music'. You've got to love them! It's a shame the games don't get the attention they deserve.
