Music Factory is a simple browser game where you build a music machine. Place pipes and instruments on the board and watch as the balls make a song come to life! Play around with the number of ball generators and instruments until you find a soundscape you like.

It's also the first real game (that deserves the name) that I made from scratch, so that's something. I wrote it in JavaScript using the p5.js library.

Music Factory is heavily inspired by La Pâte à Son, a browser game from the 2000s that I used to play a lot as a kid. There doesn't seem to be a playable version of it on the internet anymore, so you'll just have to believe me when I say it was great fun.

This game is quite a bit less advanced than La Pâte à Son was (fewer instruments, fewer notes, fewer settings to tweak, etc.). I guess it's more of a proof of concept, or a minimum viable product? Still, considering it was made in a week for a jam, I'm pretty happy with it.

A simple fun audio toy, great job.

La Pâte à Son is still around by the way, you can find it in Flashpoint.




Yes, someone else remembers that game!
I'd love for you to support this more, would buy a full version for sure!


Thanks, I'm glad you liked it! :) Maybe I'll have some more time to devote to this in the future.


It is really very pleasant! I have nothing else to say other than adding some more instruments and items to complicate the sound machine even more like the original inspiration. ;)


Cool little toy =)


This is interesting! It reminds me of the Wintergarten Marble Machine...


this is incredible. i love the art, and how effortless making pleasant tunes comes with this interface. such a joy to use.


thanks so much, I'm glad you liked it! :)
