Dance?! Did you say dance?! Come on, my boy! Together! Let’s go! Again! Down! Boss… I have so much to tell you! Now’s your chance to go head to head in a furious Greek dancing contest against Zorba himself!
ZORBA originally comes from an idea Rilla and I had while walking through the Piazza San Marco in Venice. It was written in ActionScript 3 using Adobe’s FlashBuilder 4.5 and the excellent Flixel library. It uses sound effects I made in bfxr and the music was thieved from a MIDI file that floats around the internet. I used Aria Maestosa extensively in working with the MIDI. The font in ZORBA is Commodore 64 Pixelized byDevin Cook.
You can read my writing about the game on my blog. ZORBA was discussed (in German) on Superlevel and (in English) on gamescenes. And some crazy people made a guy play it while on a swing, so there you go.
