It's not every day that a game developed by a single person with an ambitious design that seeks to merge traditional elements of the music and gaming business into one nontraditional whole sees release on a major console. However, tomorrow happens to be just such a day.

Sony Computer Entertainment America has announced that Jonathan Mak's Everyday Shooter will arrive in tomorrow's PlayStation Network update. Described as "an album of games exploring the expressive power of abstract shooters," the downloadable shoot-'em-up incorporates sound effects from the player moving around and shooting obstacles into the game's guitar-driven soundtrack.

Everyday Shooter caused a stir at the Independent Games Festival in March when it earned awards for Design Innovation, Excellence in Audio, and a GameTap Indie Award. That showing drew the interest of Sony, which picked it up and had it on display at this year's E3 Media and Business Summit in July.
