polyomi – minesweeper with colors and shapes

polyomi iconMy brother Felix has released a video game he calls polyomi, a puzzle game that he describes as minesweeper with colors.  I ended up being in charge of the audio aspect of the game, which underwent about six or seven failed iterations before finally coming to the final product.  I’m pretty happy with how it all turned out.  Feel free to leave us feedback about it!  You can play it on itch.io (and download the music for a donation of $1 or more) or on kongregate.
