About This Game

WARNING: this game may potentially trigger seizures for people with photosensitive epilepsy. Viewer discretion is advised.

Hoverboy is an interactive musical playlist showcasing music from Jesse Aidyn (full album), Multi-Memory Controller (1 song), and Ginger Breaker (1 song), where you get to explore different worlds and interact with the environment to the sound of a playlist. In part inspired by music visualizers, it is a highly experimental take on the concept of music videos.

Some primary features:
  • A vastly different world for each one of the 11 available songs.
  • Bright, colorful and intense visuals.
  • Controls that vary from simple exploration to multiple simultaneous effects making.
  • A control board showing what controls are available at all time.

Hoverboy was developed in part as a creative output and practical case study for a Master's research on the idea of experimentation in video games. The resulting thesis, titled L’expérimentation vidéoludique théorisée en arts, en sciences et en design, et pratiquée dans la création de l'album musical vidéoludique Hoverboy, is available online for free (in french only).

This game is entirely free. If, however, you would like to support the developer, you may do so by purchasing one of the DLCs (they do not add any content within the game!).
