Quiet. Alone.

Except for the Sound of Music.

Explore a world of isolation and with the help of your trusty lute, get the band back together! Use music to explore and discover a range of diverse pixel art landscapes.

Petrichord is a unique music game. It isn't a rhythm game (mostly), letting you play music how you want, and when you want to interact with the world!

You don't need to be a musician to play Petrichord, you just need WASD to walk and a mouse to use the music wheel (you'll know it when you see it). Anyone can play it and a sense of adventure really helps too.

The story isn't just told through words but through the environments, the sounds and the music of the world. So, pop on a set of headphones or earbuds and explore the world!

Petrichord is a short game, and you can complete it in between 30 minutes to 1 hour, so just download it and go and download our soundtrack (in MP3, WAV or FLAC!) all for free. You can even support us with a donation.

Petrichord was a final year student project for DCU's B.Sc. in Multimedia.
