‘Games by Songs’ was a 6 month period of intensive experimentation (supported by Creative Victoria) undertaken by Jake about integrating music with lyrics into video games through collaborative songwriting and game design.

Jacob will talk through 3 prototypes and songs he created for 'Games by Songs' - a Creative Victoria funded project exploring the relationship between music with lyrics and video games. He will break down his design approach/creative process, successes and challenges, what he learnt from the project and collaborations, and what could be explored next!

This talk is for game designers, songwriters/musicians, and anyone with a passion for music games. The talk will leave you with a place to start with innovating in the games-music space, some tips on integrating music with lyrics into games, and questioning what a music game can be.
