A downloadable game for Windows and macOS

stix logo

a 6x6 pixel game by @TheRealMolen for #lowrezjam 2018

i thought it might be fun to try and make a game with only 36 pixels, and what I came up with was this - part musical game, part 16 step sequencer

audio is critical - this is a music game!

please enjoy!

when the screen is grey, it's playing you a rhythm.
when it turns orange, it's playing back your attempt to match that rhythm!

-----<: CONTROLS :>-----

1  2  3  4
q  w  e  r
a  s  d  f
z  x  c  v

pressing these buttons changes what sound plays on a certain beat of the rhythm. keep pressing to cycle through the available sounds!

try holding SHIFT or ALT

Install instructions

The easiest way to play stix is to install it from the itch.io app!

On Mac, if you want to download manually, you'll need to extract the zip file, and then copy the "Contents" folder it creates into a new folder called "stix.app". I'm not sure why you need to do this - I'm an itch.io n00b, and I think I have some issue with how I uploaded the build :/
