by: Rosamosi • 186
Welcome to the wonderful world of Mussila, an adventure full of music, monsters and exciting challenges. Based on a musical curriculum this adventurous and creative game gives you the basic skills and tools to play and create your own music – with no experience required! Music is a universal language where no words are needed. The player progresses through skill building levels in a variety of games that focus on ear training, music theory, rhythm and melody with the aim of giving the player a solid musical foundation. Mussila is an exciting adventure that offers an easy entry into the world of music.
Mussila is designed to teach kids the principles of music through a fun game. Research shows that music education at an early age can boost brain development and preliminary surveys have shown that Mussila significantly speeds up the learning progress in music, with Mussila players scoring 20,2% higher in music theory compared to a non-playing comparison group. Mussila is based on a thoroughly planned curriculum, made to encourage the child’s self-esteem through accomplishment and fun play. It is a zero violence and gender-neutral adventure in which your child gains musical understanding they can build on for life.

The developers of Mussila are a dynamic group of people with background from the arts, music and technology. Based in Iceland, many traits of their Nordic home-country can be found in the scenes of Mussila, with volcanoes, lava and glacial rivers, all playing an integral part in the game’s storytelling. Rosamosi game studio was founded by Margrét Juliana Sigurdardottir, a DipRAM postgraduate from the Royal Academy of Music in London, and computer engineer Hilmar Thor Birgisson, an avid game player and developer. After receiving grants from The Icelandic Technology Fund and the Nordic Game Institute, they set up their talented team in 2015 with the aim of revolutionising music education by means of gaming and joyful approach. Rosamosi believes in music making being part of our everyday lives and that music education should be available for everyone.
