I feel like no one will regret this purchase. If you're in the mood, this will pay for itself in like 5 minutes, if you're not, then you probably won't like it. You know what i mean

Well you pulled me over. I'll let you know what I think later after I've played nano a bit.

I know the dev must hate this, but most people compare it to playauditorium.com (Auditorium) But basically it's a game where you probably should have headphones on, as it is ambience based. You try to get bits of energy into certain nodes... i'm so bad at describing this, but you use your finger to steer them into the nodes, and it feels as if you're guiding bits of mercury or something, it's really responsive..

This was based on an art installation, if i'm correct, and this is the direct implementation. It's fun to have a background story to the game.

If you like Newtonica 1, then you'll probably like this game.. As long as you plan on listening to the game (gameplay influences the ambiance) then you would like this! Hope this helps

I messed around with the lite version a bit ago and I was impressed. The gameplay definitely confused me, but the music and ambiance pulled me in. One of those "I'm not sure what I'm doing but I can't stop doing it" game. It might be even more relaxing than Zen Bound! I hesitated a lot, but I think I'll pick it up at 99 cents. Might help me unwind!

Doesn't bother me at all - I like PlayAuditorium, it's very well done - I'll take that as a compliment!

Forgive me for getting off-topic, but since you brought up PA I wanted to mention that I actually have another music-centric game in the works. Where NANO is more ambient, this new title will feel more rhythmic, perhaps more like PA in some ways. Before I can devote much energy to this new music game, I need to finish the Rustcycle and Edifice albums (still a few months away) and two FORMation titles. Without giving away too much, the material from those albums will be manipulated throughout the game...a bit of rock (Edifice), a bit of electronica (Rustcycle)....

An Edifice track, Biomachines: http://edificemusic.com/bio-3-5-08-dry.mp3 - and a live YouTube clip of that song - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DVQsB_xH-hA

A Rustcycle track, The Vaulted Blue: http://rustcycle.com/a11_vaulted.mp3

(These tracks are still in production)

The installation isn't quite done yet - only so many hours in the day, only so much caffeine a human can take :-) I'll post pictures when its set up...

LOL. I still haven't gotten around to getting this. I have a growing laundry list of apps I need to buy. *Groans*
I only got the lite version to give feedback on some sort of error that people were getting.
