MuX gives players lots of tiny pieces to play around with, each of which creates its own unique sound when connected to an in-game speaker. Each of these pieces can be fiddled with to adjust the sound, or connected to other parts to change the nature of the sounds that players create. Essentially a sandbox designed around playing with the building blocks of music, MuX aims to let players create song and intricate machinery through experimentation.

MuX's mixture of fantastic contraptions and unique music make for an intriguing gadget. Players can take up various Generators that create sound, attaching them with Combinators to make a sound that mingles two sounds, use Transformers to adjust it using various filters and effects, and then attach them to the speaker to see what the player has created. Then, players can continue to connect these parts to various other pieces of musical machine, slowly developing music, bit by bit, through these and various other components.

All the while, players are building a fantastic-looking machine in VR. These things are fascinating to watch in motion, giving players a sense of the complexity of sound through a neat-looking machine, one that they have built all for themselves.

MuX is a wonderful tool for exploring music in a unique light, as well as for building intricate machinery in VR, and something to easily lose yourself in as you delve into the nuances of sound.

MuX is available for $9.99 on Steam. For more information on the game and developer Decochon, you can head to the game's site, the developer's site, or follow them on YouTube and Twitter.
