Sing to Act

|Performing songs to achieve a purpose.|
Some games feature the ability to Sing to Act, as part of the Gameplay. This kind of exploration unfolds new opportunities in terms of the interaction with the environment. Some of them include the design of alternatives to the "classic" belligerent approaches (Make Sound not War), which in turn may have interesting effects in terms of the Emotional Script.
A particular case which we are addressing as a different design pattern is Pitch Gameplay. Whilst in the case of Pitch Gameplay it is the performance of singing itself that is in focus (namely the evaluation of how accurate the performance is), in the case of Sing to Act the act of singing is semantic, and it works as the means to achieve an end that is collateral to the act of singing. That is why, although it may be interesting that Sing to Act is performed through actual Sound Input, that is not a fundamental.
