[This post is re-blogged from Venus Patrol sister-organization JUEGOS RANCHEROS, our local Austin indie game collective.]

It was one of the first best surprises and then a central fixture of the past two Fantastic Arcades, and now we’re bringing it back to debut a night of never-before-seen new scenes & music: join us next Thursday, March 6th, at 7:00PM at Austin’s North Door, as JUEGOS RANCHEROS presents Fernando Ramallo and David Kanaga’s interactive musical landscape generator Panoramical.

As Ramallo & Kanaga (the latter also known for his musical contributions to Proteus & Dyad) ready the game for commercial release on PC, Mac & tablet devices — which will also feature a number of audio & visual collaborations with a host of exciting artists — we’ll be giving Austin a chance to experience just-added scenes from the game on the ND’s massive screen, all under the control of the bespoke knob & slider controller made by Mickey ‘Delptronics‘ Delp first debuted in last year’s Fantastic Arcade cabinet.

FERNANDO RAMALLO & DAVID KANAGA TEASE THEIR MIDI-CONTROLLED MUSICAL LANDSCAPE PANORAMICAL

Not officially part of the Fantastic Arcade selection, but already one of the games I’m most excited to see here this year, visiting developer Fernando Ramallo has just announced Panoramical, a new “musical landscape” created in conjunction with David Kanaga, the composer behind Ed Key’s Proteus and PS3 puzzle-racer Dyad.

Interestingly, rather than traditional keyboard or game-controller inputs, Panoramical is manipulated with the knobs & sliders of a standard MIDI controller (Ramallo’s announcement post shows the Korg nanoKONTROL above) — quite possibly in answer to the tweet below from this past spring, from UK indie Stephen ‘Increpare‘ Lavelle.

To better acquaint yourself with Ramallo’s work, I highly suggest having a look at You Must Hold On To Your Mother’s Hand, a brief but genuinely unsettling first-person game created a few months back for the “Peter Molydeux”-inspired MolyJam.

The game will officially be debuting, says Ramallo, at this year’s Indiecade, but I’ll hopefully have cornered the creators into giving me a private show as soon as humanly possible. [via Fernando makes games]
