Create random melodies as you play, and listen to them repeating and evolving into something new. Echo Sings at Night is a relaxing musical game built around the idea of generative music by Brian Eno: an emerging song, made of simple rules, that becomes greater than the sum of its parts.

Warning: Play the desktop version for best performances.

Made under 48 hours for the GMTK Jam 2020, with the theme “Out of Control”.

La musique a la fin n'est pas très jolie mais l'ambiance est la et le jeu est bien polish. Bravo :)

A very elegant game. I tried 3 times with satisfying results. It's a nice break from the usual jam game, well done :)

Incroyable - quel bonheur ! Félicitation pour ce jeu <3

Ça n'a pas produit de résultat très mélodieux avec moi...

Néanmoins j'adore l'expérimentation. <3
