Call me paranoid but after that infamous case when Google stopped including results from Pianoworld (which BTW turned out to be because PW is not mobile optimized, hence with a good reason), I started researching Google alternatives, discovered DuckDuckGo and from a broader perspective decided to stop using any Google service at all. I've recently closed my Gmail account and so it's only YouTube now that I still upload videos too but try to avoid watching clips... And so when I saw the link above goo.gl I didn't even bother to open it laugh

A video game shooter scene where the gunshots strike the piano keys to play a tune? That's imprressive?
I do not understand. frown

Technologically? Not so impressive. I recall Duke Nukem had a working pool table. But this is a multiplayer FPS, and putting a working piano in there is a novel concept with some very interesting social results smile

If you're not very impressed with the Overwatch Piano, you'll probably be completely unimpressed with the Fortnite piano, which is also a big hit, where players seek out a giant "Big"-like step-keyboard and accompanying sheet music in a sprawling outdoor map!

I just love the fact that players (and we're talking the "younger generation" here) love having playable pianos in their games. Maybe it'll spark some interest in the real thing (or even a digital, haha).

I thought this was going to be another VST package. Not a video game demo.

If you have multiple players shooting at it can it play chords or is it monophonic?

And now someone did make it into a VST! (although not a very good one - don't throw away your Garritan yet!)
