inSynch has something to do with music, but nothing to do with goodbyes or frosted tips – it's a rhythm game that allows players to compose their own songs or attempt to survive for as long as possible. It's simplistic and unique, with four shapes rolling down four concrete pathways, meeting in the middle at a well. Pop the shapes up as they reach the spring-loaded platform above the well by pressing one of four keys, and that sound is added to the soundtrack.
Explore mode allows players to craft music themselves, and Exploit is a survival mode, throwing harder and harder combinations of shapes and sounds at players as the game goes on.
"The game is entirely crafted and animated by hand using traditional stop-motion animation techniques, giving a fragile and delicate feel to this musical experience," Them Games Lead Game Designer Oscar Barda says. "Don't let yourself be tricked though, Exploit gets hellishly difficult."
InSynch is due out on Thursday, April 24, for PC, Mac and Linux, available through the Humble Store or the Them Games site.
