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. ;)
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.
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.
