Alpha Zen

Music and SFX by Steve Woodzell

A companion to Color Zen, Alpha Zen utilizes similar gameplay for a crossword-inspired mechanic, with the player’s actions generating a dynamic visual ambience that had to be reflected by both the music and sound design. Similar to Color Zen yet even more laid back, I created a deep and minimal soundtrack with shifting washes of synthesizers and muted beats to reflect the layered, subdued atmosphere of the graphics. The SFX were designed to emphasize both the interactivity and the procedural graphics that each action creates, resulting in a responsive, immersive experience for the player.
