very cool looking and sounding game sadly i couldnt get the exe to run, it says its missing a few files

what files does it say you’re missing? it’s a love2d program, i could package it up.

This was extremely fun to explore. Is it alright if I sample a bit of this for the opening track of my next album? And if so, how would you like to be credited?


Hi! Thanks so much for the kind words. If it's a non-commercial project you don't need to do anything. You are welcome to credit me for dronecollector if you like (and link to the project) but not required to do so.

Link me to it later so I can check out your work!

Hello notapipe. I stumbled on "drone collector", great project. If you like, check out our "Kissa Nine Lives" platformer game. it shares kind of similar idea. We made it with my bandmate for interactive noise/ambient concerts, where audience can play the game multichannel, and we mix and modulate the audio of those gameplays to make the soundscape for the concert. The games are projected to the walls of concert space as well.

I tried it! Enjoyed the sounds I made. Great idea!

Thank you. Nice to hear you enjoyed! I've developed Kissa Nine Lives game forward with backrounds, new levels and animations of notes as well. Hope to publish version 2.0 in near future. Looking forward to see your new projects!
