Myriad download is an interesting combination of a music game with a shooter created for PlayStation 4, for which Erlend Grefsrud, creative director at Bifrost Entertainment, is responsible. At first glance the game may seem chaotic, because there is no coherent plot or more complex mechanics. However, it only takes a moment to understand the idea behind this undoubtedly eccentric production.
The basis of the game is the fight against successive waves of enemies with the use of the soundtrack we create. The defeated opponent, however, continues to multiply, while our task is to survive to the point where the enemies around us will be a whole mass – then we initiate a huge chain reaction. In this way we eliminate all enemies and improve our weapons at the same time. As we make progress, we have access to more and more worlds and even more groups of opponents.
What is important, each stage is recorded, so that we can scroll freely, just like a real song. In the event of the death of our character, we do not lose the progress made earlier. In addition, the highest rated music performances are automatically saved, so you can share them with your friends or return to them at any time and play the game again, trying to achieve an even better result.
This production offers a simple, peculiar visual setting full of contrasting colours and shapes. The phrase "colourful symphony" reflects very well what Grefsrud actually managed to create.
