Ahh thanks Atif!
Hey thanks!! I haven't written about it but perhaps I should.
The short of it is that I designed a bunch of independent modules in html+css, and a layout algorithm figures out how to fill an 8x8 grid with different combinations of them. Then they're randomly hooked up to different musical controls like octave, tempo, filter cutoff, etc. I owe a lot to tone.js for making a lot of that stuff possible.
In the meantime the code is all on github: https://github.com/rvinluan/Ramsophone
Thank you! That's exactly what I was going for =)
Thanks! Got a lot of updates coming soon =)
thank you! Yeah the squares don't do anything, they're just to remind you what site you're on I suppose, and they're a place to put the back button.
Although I generally agree with the sentiment, I feel this is a sort of shallow glossing over of things; There are many ways to make gamification work and many ways to make it not work. Sebastian Deterding's talk on Getting Gamification Right does a really good job at explaining it. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7ZGCPap7GkY
