So – the EGP prototype for this month which I announced earlier is coming along quite well!
In Dragonflute you control this cute little fellow:

(edit: This it the outdated development version. Click here for the release blog post.)
As the theme of this month’s EGP and the name suggest, you don’t do this my mashing franatically on your keyboard, but but by making sounds, recorded by your microphone. I hope you have one. :)
The dragon will either follow the PITCH of the sounds you make (which I prefer), be it by singing, whistling or by playing an instrument, or the VOLUME (which is fun too, though the game should then rather be called Screaming At Dragons).
Current status is that I don’t have any goals or gameplay yet, only the calibration and the initial control mechanic, so is a mere (but already quite fun) toy.
Next things up will be some things he can collect, and maybe some enemies.
And yeah, so far there are quite some keys which need to be pressed. This will be changed later, too, of course – I already have some great ideas for the GUI. :)
Well, try it out, make suggestions, leave feedback, have fun and stay tuned, more to come!
