Tune It Up! is a digital music toy that allows players to create a short composition using a drag and drop interface. There are 3 themes to choose from, each with a unique set of art and musical notes, as well as random events that can start a score-based mini-game or change the composition's tempo.

This project's creation was funded by the Iowa City Public Library and the primary development target was a 1080p touch-enabled table housed in the children's area of the library. For the best experience, we recommend running the app on a touchscreen large enough for multiple players to collaborate, but if you don't have a touch device available, you can still enjoy most of the functionality using a mouse.

For the library's purposes, an "Administrator Menu" can be opened at any time by pressing Ctrl+Shift+A. This menu allows certain game options to be set and allows the user to manage saved compositions. Additionally, a "Debug Menu" can be opened by pressing Ctrl+Shift+D.

If you are interested in using Tune It Up! in a public space (such as a public library), please let us know!

Hello Virtually Competent,

My name is Antonia Gates, I manage the games at CoolmathGames.com. I really enjoyed Tune it Up!, I think it would be a great fit on our site!

I'm writing to ask if the game is available for non-exclusive licensing. Our licenses are totally non-exclusive, so you would maintain all of the IP rights and could continue to develop and distribute the game however you'd like to.

Please let me know if it is available, and how much it would cost. I'm looking forward to discussing this with you soon!

Best regards,

Antonia Gates
