Fract video shows a colorful world built on music

Fract hails itself as "a first-person musical exploration game inspired by synthesizers." I call it the neon-drenched offspring of a Brian Eno album and a trip inside a Daft Punk helmet. It's been on a lengthy development ride since 2011, but a free beta demo has helped things along. A new trailer released this week comes alongside an announcement of a full release in the next few months, so it won't be long before we can all delve into Fract's abstract world.

Upcoming puzzler FRACT OSC will receive backing from the Indie Fund as developer Phosfiend Systems works to complete the project, according to a recent announcement. FRACT OSC, a first-person adventure game built around the musical exploration of a world based on sound, is set to release on Steam later this year after a successful Greenlight campaign.
