The musically-charged, puzzle-solving indie game, FRACT OSC, now has a new trailer added to its official Steam Greenlight page. We originally covered the game in Greenlight Spotlight episode 4 (embedded below), primarily excited about its promise of using in-game studio composition tools to create music on-the-fly and without demand for musical knowledge. Creating rhythms and songs based upon in-game interactions helps accomplish puzzle objectives -- moving platforms into position to build a temporary bridge, for instance.
The new trailer comes at a time when Valve has just approved several new Steam Greenlight titles, but Fract OSC still needs your vote if you think it deserves to be available on the distribution service. Here's that trailer:

There is presently no firm or tentative release date. The team hopes to have FRACT OSC on the market this year.
Steve started GamersNexus back when it was just a cool name, and now it's grown into an expansive website with an overwhelming amount of features. He recalls his first difficult decision with GN's direction: "I didn't know whether or not I wanted 'Gamers' to have a possessive apostrophe -- I mean, grammatically it should, but I didn't like it in the name. It was ugly. I also had people who were typing apostrophes into the address bar - sigh. It made sense to just leave it as 'Gamers.'"
First world problems, Steve. First world problems.
