Game music competition

Here's a slightly updated version.

What do you think?

It's pretty cool, Jimmy. I'm a pretty big fan of the changes. Your new section that you added in, can you give it more of a beat? You've been building up to that section and to leave out the drums feels disappointing.

I like the ending. It shows that your track loop but also ends with some style.

Peace on Earth,

No, i was confused by that a little too.. just means don't expect for it to definitely work out.. there's a low chance. that's all it means.

How did you get yours to sound so good?? omg.. those are really fast notes, what is the grouping? It's so awesome...

well, I wrote this just now for an introduction screen. it's called "indestructible". i've attached two versions. one's an mp3 recording of my soundcard's interpretation of the midi, one is softsynth.

More drums are on their way!!

But otherwise did you like that new section? like,, the rest of it?

also, upon using my headphones i realized a lot of the music was coming only out of just the right channel. Is that something I should worry about, or will that be taken care of when and if chosen?

Excellent! It will really help

I liked it I just wish you transitioned to it better. It kinda comes out of nowhere right now. it's got a really, really cool feel, like an urgent sci-fi scene. Like I said, I like it.

You probably don't have to worry about it right now. It'll definitely be something you wanna change if your piece gets chosen, however.

I can easily see this piece in this game. It sounds awesome!

Yo, Boxnet's player suddenly looks a lot better? Are there any other changes going on with it?

Nice. The drums help SO much. 1:22-1:32 sounds so much better now especially with the fill leading into the next section. I really like the middle section but I think you have to be careful that the volume's don't get too loud causing the track to peak and get all distorted. You can hear this at 1:09. Either put a limiter on the track or turn your tracks down a little bit.

You've done a lot of great work on this track, Jimmy. One change that I suggested that I don't think you made was the transition to the middle section at 1:09. It sounds a little smoother because it crescendos into the next section. In fact, it doesn't really sound that rough, but I think a drum fill going into that section would set it up nicely.

Excellent work! Now make sure the track isn't peaking in the volume

Peace on Earth,

Nice work, Jimmyjuicin. Your second section in the middle of the piece has a second theme within it. You had the bass do a gliss. down every now and then. I thought it was cool.

It's a good final product. Have you tried turning up the drums in the first section? It might give the piece more drive.

Sabiansoldier, your display pic rocks my socks. You have a cool piece. I think you could turn the marimba way up. What do you think about another instrument somewhere in the middle for colour/variation? If you found the right instrument that compliments the marimba, it would do wonders.

Nice track.

Development was looking pretty good until two weeks ago. Now we have a short break before we can continue and I think I should be able to share some screenshots or a video about the game within its current state soon.

The estimated time of the remaining development is very hard to tell, but we have already done quite a bit.

Nothing to worry about. My side projects started to consume more of my time than usual, so I fell back a little.

@ Sabiansoldier

By the way, it's not a flash game. Players will have to download and install the game.

Hi everyone. Thank you for all your submissions so far.

Actually the game itself started to look better with every hour spent, but unfortunately something affected the whole development process in a very negative way:

Two days ago my computer refused to boot, so I had to completely renew the windows installation. That alone was no problem at all, though it was a lot of work due to all those back-ups. However, at this moment I am not able to execute the game.exe anymore and we have been digging around for several hours now so that we can locate the problem. I am working together with a very skilled guy who actually was able to solve all kinds of problems that have occured previously without even a bit of my influence, but this time it looks much different.

We even managed to find some guy that posted a thread with the very same problem - his post is yet to be answered...

There will not be any progress at all, unless we manage to fix this issue...

Just wanted to let you know, that we're back on track. The game is running and we have fixed mostly every issue that caused trouble.

The end of the development process is coming near. We're currently working at the network, so that online gaming will work. Current version is 0.7, so we will have our beta (0.9) pretty soon and I will then be able to spend more time to listen to all the tracks that have been uploaded ;]

Damnit thanks for that.

Don't understand how there can be typos though when I copied and pasted :blink:

Probably just another sign I need to replace the batteries in my wireless keyboard.

Just outa curiosity when will we be notified if our pieces are going to be put onto the game and has a deadline been set for last submissions or is it yet to be set?

Oh, I am open for submissions until we release a 1.0 version of the game. In beta I will take the time and list every single submission in one post and I will declare the winners then. I lost the overview during the last month, so I can't really tell whether there are going to be a lot winners or not.

Yesterday we have created our blog - there's not much to be seen here, but you will definitely find at least one video that shows some footage soon ;]

Hope we can make that blog look better soon :/
