A.V. the Game
A.V. follows the adventure of a sentient music program living in a computer system – a program seeking to learn more about itself and its world. But since our hero was only programmed to understand sound, that’s the only way he can interact with his environment. Each sound you generate can be seen as a pulse of light, and it’s this mechanic that serves as your primary tool for navigating A.V.’s open world. To help you along, a set of musical instrument algorithms allow for different types of interaction with the world, letting you open access to new areas.
In the midst of this adventure, though, there’s a catch. The computer you inhabit isn’t all that happy with your newfound sense of self-awareness, and has sent a load of antivirus programs into the system to stop you. Make too much noise, and you’ll draw their attention. Try to stay out of sight well enough to make your escape!
A.V.’s presentation is centered around a quirky and engaging sensory experience. The entire world follows a rhythm, and electronic music is coupled with colorful, pulsing lights to place you into a world where sound represents your whole existence. The game’s open-world design encourages you to choose your own path and your own play style – multiple ending sequences await depending on what technique you ultimately choose. So throw on some headphones, join the experience, and dive into the world of A.V. – a world that puts the “rhythm” in “algorithm”.
