Didn't see a thread for this little gem yet so I thought I'd make one.
I just downloaded it today and spent a couple of hours with it. I have no musical background at all, but even I managed to create some decent sounding tunes. Gotta say it was a great feeling to just be fooling around and trying different things, and then noticing a few people "watching" my performance, apparently enjoying my work. It inspired me to keep going and try to make my performance sound better and better. I got as high as 19 viewers, which I thought was a lot for a talentless hack such as myself, before I reluctantly dragged myself back to real life.
4am seems like one of those games that's easy to learn, but hard to master. Anyone can pick up a controller and make some music and have a really fun time, but I think it'll take a lot of effort and skill to create something great, just like in real life.
If anyone has the spare time and a spare $15 or so, I highly recommend it. Even if you can't spare the cash, be sure to download the free live viewer so you can watch performances.
i had the playable beta
was fun , but not something id buy
maybe if it goes on special offer or free on plus i'll pick it up
I downloaded this(Demo) and it looks really neat. I'm still not sure if $15 is worth it though but I'll think about it.
It just occured to me that the PS Eye has a microphone right? I wonder if that could be incorporated into the game a little further down the track, so performers can speak/sing/MC over their beats.
