Fract Got Pretty: Light + Sound = Win

Since we last caught up with it, the extraordinary-looking (and sounding) Fract OSC has released a bundle of new screenshots, and they're a bit pretty. Described as Myst meets Rez meets Tron, a first-person puzzle adventure in an abstract world, designed around electronic music. The game, they say, is inspired by synthesisers, in a world that "literally runs on sound". Previous footage has been remarkably interesting, but arguably not that pretty. However, that's beginning to change, thanks to some new atmospheric art, and some extremely effective lighting. Take a look.

As someone born of one parent with amusia, and another who sings tenor, my halfway point is to be someone who thrives on listening to music, but has no ability to create it, instrumentally or vocally. So frankly this game terrifies me. It also makes me envy those who dabble with being a musician, because this looks extraordinary. Take a look at how pretty it is, but also watch the footage I've reposted at the bottom, as it obviously makes little sense without sound as well. Click on them to see them biggerer.
