Spending time chatting with the community of Last Oasis has become a great way to spend my free time lately. Yesterday we discusses the possibility of adding instruments into the game and that got me thinking about the kind of instruments that might be available in the world the game takes place in. It is similar to a pirate game, in which people build ships and traverse the desert sea, which immediately brought to mind a hurdygurdy, one of my favorite instruments. Seeing how unique everything else is in the game though made me feel like an instrument made for the game should be equally unique. Not only unique, but simplistic, rugged, and durable. Eventually I settled on modifying a Hurdy Gurdy into a pinharp. This I would imagine is an instrument that although may not sound as good, could survive a pretty good beating.
