Joi Ito's conversation with the living web.


Newtonica is a cool new iPhone/iPod Touch game by Kenichi Nishi... currently available only in Japan I think. Music and sound effects by my friend Kenji Eno.

It's #1 on iTunes Store Japan right now...

UPDATE: It's available in 70 countries including the US.


Looks very cool... the sweet neo-disco logo alone is pure gold...

By the way, I've noticed a lot of decent Japanese apps with Japanese-only descriptions on the iTunes store here in Canada (and presumably the US, etc) that get overlooked by my friends because they can't read the info... "Banner" by Masayuki Akamatsu comes to mind... it's a great app, and everyone I've shown it to scrambles to download it. (The first thing I thought of when I saw it was your old "hecklebot" meme...)

Ooh, Banner is a great tip. Definitely hecklebot worthy.

Newtonica has rocked me to sleep the last few nights. (That's not to say it's boring or unexciting! Quite the opposite. It's just he only time I get to play games.)
