A downloadable game

Play basketball using your voice.
Is your voice versatile enough to play ball?

Making noises to put a ball in a basket is the dumbest thing I could possibly think of.
The fact he did it is kinda neat.

OSX and Windows:
Probably drag & drop the game onto the Löve icon or something, idk.
  • The game assumes the microphone is connected to the first audio device it detects and that it supports recording at 48 kHz, 16 bit mono. If that fails it just quits itself.
  • There are no controls for input sensitivity.
  • The audio range it reacts to is roughly 1200 Hz to 12000 Hz, which may be a bit much. Try hissing to hit the heights.
  • It's probably a prime example of how not to do audio processing.
  • It could use a large amount of tweaking.
