    A wild composer appeared!

    After taking a bit of a personal leave of absence from the project, I'm back in the studio again to finish up the remaining audio assets for Malevolence.

    I'm sharing a new piece I wrote today. Not even Alex has heard it yet! My guess is that he is either sleeping or programming like a mofo at 4:00 AM.

    I'm not actually sure where this one will end up in the game, if it does end up in the game. My goal was to finish music for the towns, but this one sounds maybe a little too "wild" to be town music, so it might be a 4th countryside exploration track. Or maybe it will evolve into something totally different altogether.

    I haven't shared Countryside #3 either, so feel free to check that out as well.

    It sounds to me like it could go well with loading screens, but it would fit well for exploring too. Nice work!

    This music makes my brain see forests. Looming trees casting shadows, almost cave like.

    edit: the first part anyway. That third part... not sure.

    It's super effective!

    Come on, someone had to say it. And I don't even watch that Pokemon stuff. ;)

    Right so, the music is really nice... I get associasions to a wintery place, in the dark, and you are walking through a cold and bleak place, the wind in your face.
    Perhaps it could be countryside music for the snow biomes? :D

    Great stuff. I like all three, but the main theme is my favourite.

    Oh noes, you've got me figured out! ;)
    I've been thinking a lot recently about doing biome specific versions of the exploration music. Whether it would be the same pieces (reworked and customized for each biome) or completely new compositions for each biome, I'm not sure. It's a lot of extra work either way, so I'm going to make sure I finish all the "core" music material first.

    So you might get more Nicolas content in the game updates! :D

    I did a little love wee just now, I think.

    The third track reminds me of ice caves and fields of snow. Bringing back the good old time I had, playing Secret of Mana in the Crystal Forest.

    Thanks Blathers!

    I've gotten a solid start on the first desert biome piece, I'll post it when it's polished up a bit more.

    What I've heard of it so far is sexcellent! (that's not a typo, either)

    I agree it has a real desert feel and evokes images of pyramids and hidden tombs.

    Hey friends!
    I've added two new tracks to the Soundcloud set for MSOA: Guard Towers and Town Theme (Day). Enjoy, and let me know what you think!

    These are pretty nifty, I'd like to hear some dark/sinister tones in a song for a very scary dungeon feel. Something to keep me jumpy when walking about.
