Happy new year fellow Earthicans! I hope your festive season brought you all a well earned break and your now ready to make things happen in 2015.
I would like to share the latest project I am working on, a side scrolling 2D platform game that follows the adventures of a Red Panda. Firstly I would like to say how much of an honour it is to be working on this title. The excitement I felt when the teams lead sent me some concept art was second to none and when you see the artworks you’ll understand what Im talking about (I cant wait to play this game!). The story is a classic adventure, a protagonist setting out to defeat an antagonist and cleanse the realm of evil. Forgive me for being mysterious but this project is still in its infancy and Im waiting on all departments to get a good start before revealing too much of the good stuff.
Lets take a look at what we have so far.
The teams lead made it clear to me that he wanted this games music to evoke the feeling of playing an epic adventure game, much like The Legend of Zelda franchise. Being a life-long fan of TLOZ and having spent countless hours playing the games has made this task feel very natural to me.
Here are three tracks for the game, an epic adventure theme, a theme for wandering and a theme for an ocean voyage.
In the coming weeks I’ll provide an in depth look at how the tracks were composed, for now all you need to know is that Komplete 9 Ultimate is my best friend.
Happy New Year everyone and let’s make this one count!
