Optic Echo

By Aaron Oldenburg

Open iTunes to buy and download apps.


Make an invisible world visible by making noise. In a "blind" game without sound, use your voice to find your way.

Chase a man through a maze and inscribe your voice on his body.

It was created for the June 2011 Experimental Gameplay Project challenge, "MASHUP". It is an echolocation-based video game with a voice-activated silent soundscape. The intention is to make visuals that are rendered in the way that audio is experienced.

"[L]ike the fire, sound is always coming into and going out of existence, evading the continuous presence that metaphysics requires; like the fire also, sound is heard and felt simultaneously, dissolving subject and object, interior and exterior.  Like the river, sound cannot be called "the same" since it changes at every point in its movement through a space; yet like "Soul," it does not strictly belong to the object.  Nor can sound's source and ending be defined, for it originates as already multiple, a "mix," which makes it impossible to speak of "a" sound without endangering the structure of Western thought itself." - Frances Dyson, Sounding New Media

This game requires a built-in microphone.

Customer Reviews

Please read reviews. Crapola👎🏼👎🏼

To get this app's attention, ya have to hit your smartphone over the head with a sledge hammer. And then I works only 13.% of the time, if your lucky. Funny, There's nothing wrong with my iPhone 6. You will see that you lost everything of input that you put in to it, just to explicitly type the same horrible rating this app deserves. Needs serious work. Sorry, sorry app.

Great idea

Really good idea, microphone too low and sensitive, and dots move too fast to see anything, made loud noise and saw lots of dots but had no idea what to do before they went away

Good idea. Needs way more work

Like the title says. It needs more work. I like the idea of the game though.
