Doom Piano makes gameplay musical

A group of indie developers and industry veterans created a modified version of Doom that players control by tapping piano keys.

Virgin Media Game Space organizer David Hayward, developer Sos Sosowski, Ricky Haggett of Honeyslug and Die Gute Fabrik's George Buckenham assembled the piano for the VMGS taking place in London. The "Doom Piano" uses white keys for movement and black keys for shooting. Another specific key is used for opening doors and hitting switches. According to Hayward, the team combined copper tape with I-PAC keyboard encoders to engage the computer inside the piano.
