Copenhagen-based developer Die Gute Fabrik and publisher Akupara Games announced the inclusion of a new Garden Mode to Mutazione, available now on PS4, PC, and coming soon to Apple Arcade.
Nominated earlier this month by the 2020 Independent Games Festival in four categories, including Excellence in Audio and the Seumas McNally Grand Prize, the title introduces Garden Mode where players are allowed the freedom to create personalized audio compositions through the player-driven musical component as seen in Story Mode. This update will also add new languages to the Story Mode: Traditional Chinese, Simplified Chinese, Russian, Korean, Japanese, and Turkish.
“We are delighted to release the standalone ‘Garden Mode’ plus six new languages to complement the Story Mode and existing eleven languages that Mutazione was released in. Garden Mode allows the player to dive much more deeply into the beautiful procedural musical compositions at the heart of Story Mode, allowing the player freedom to experiment and create, share and explore this carefully crafted music engine.”Hannah Nicklin, CEO of Die Gute Fabrik.
Players are now able to freely compose procedurally generated ambient music through planting seeds in their own personal garden in Mutazione. Garden Mode takes the mechanic found in Story Mode and provides players a stand-alone garden to explore, compose, share, and experiment with their own orchestras with no time limits. With each plant having a specific set of sounds and melodies when planted, players will experience a variety of moods, textures, and emotions through different plant-based compositions.
