One year ago, we were treated to a little game called Sound Shapes from Queasy Games. Anthony handled the review last August, saying, “It’s beautiful, simple, unique, and if you ever had even the slightest interest in creating your own music, you’re going to love Sound Shapes.”
If you’ve still held off on buying Sound Shapes for this long, the game, which has Cross Buy, is 50% off until August 13th on PS3/PS Vita. For current owners, all the DLC is 50% off, with all the avatars free until the sale ends.
The festivities don’t just end with a sale though, as a contest has been announced that asks you to create and upload “a level highlighting what you love about Sound Shapes.” You must upload the level by August 19th and hashtag the title with #BDay. If you win, you’ll receive a signed, screen printed Sound Shapes poster, while also being included in a special 1 Year Anniversary Milkcrate album. Unfortunately, this is only open to US residents who are 13 years or older.
Finally, if you go to this PlayStation Community thread and post “your thoughts or birthday wishes,” the Car Mini-Album & Entity Pack will be given to you for free! Posts need to be submitted by Monday, August 12th at 11:59PM PST and the codes will be sent out via an XMB message no later than August 30th.
Specifics weren’t given, but they Mark Rabo of the Sound Shapes team did say, “We have many more announcements coming soon.”
