Owl music looper game 

So, some time after that (that is, today, this Sunday), I grabbed my Akai LPD8 MIDI controller and started hacking a few lines to check if Web MIDI could help with triggering the samples.

It did work. Unfortunately the whole code for the game objects is defined inside a closure that wouldn’t allow to me to do stuff easily but it worked.

I’m still working on it and it seems that it’s gonna be super easy to recreate the game with other custom figures.
