“Why is the Princess in a Magic Forest?!” and “ikenie” have been Greenlit!

HUGE NEWS! Both Why is the Princess in a Magic Forest?! and ikenie have just been Greenlit on Steam! We are in the process now of finalizing the games to get them ready to be purchased and played. I want to thank everyone for their support throughout this process (which was excruciatingly long – but, hey, that’s the life of small indie teams, I guess). Since ikenie has been on sale on for a while now, the ikenie Original Soundtrack has already been available on Bandcamp, but now I’ll finally be able to release the Why is the Princess in a Magic Forest?!  Original Soundtrack as well. As readers of this blog will know, that was the very first game soundtrack that I composed. The fact that the game and the soundtrack are finally about to be released is such a huge moment for me. It’s the culmination of a lot of hard work and love for composing music. I feel like I’ve grown a lot as a composer since I wrote the six pieces of music on that soundtrack, but they remain special to me since it was the first time I actually wrote music that was to be used in an actual video game. I really hope you enjoy both of these games and their music!

ikenie is on Steam Greenlight!

Back in August I wrote the soundtrack for a game called “ikenie” that was created in just one month for the 2015 Indie Game Maker Contest (IGMC). Since the contest ended, the developer (Akumu Games), has been working on getting it ready for a commercial release. There are new levels, bosses, updated mechanics, controller support, and many other enhancements. I’ve also composed a new piece of music called “Death Manor Waltz” for one of the new areas in the game.

“ikenie” is currently on Steam Greenlight and we are in the long, grueling process of waiting for it to get enough “YES” votes to be able to sell on the Steam Marketplace. So, we need everyone to check out the game’s page, watch the trailer, take a look at the screenshots, and give us a vote.

I’ll also be re-releasing the game’s soundtrack on Bandcamp as “ikenie Original Soundtrack Plus”. This new release will include all of the music from the game, including the new track “Death Manor Waltz”, a newly remastered version of “Witch’s Lair (bonus track)”, and brand new original back cover art that I had made especially for this release. The soundtrack will go on sale as soon as the game does, so look forward to that!

ikenie Original Soundtrack

(Edit: The game was re-released in an expanded form since this post. I have re-released the soundtrack as well under the title “ikenie Original Soundtrack Plus”. This release includes a brand new track called “Death Manor Waltz” as well as a newly re-mastered version of the bonus track “Witch’s Lair”. The link below has been updated.)

I’m very happy to announce the release of a BRAND NEW VIDEO GAME SOUNDTRACK that I composed. “ikenie Original Soundtrack” came out on August 4th (which just happened to be my birthday)!

“ikenie” is a 2D action-adventure/puzzle game for PC featuring challenging and unique mechanics, multiple endings, and an original soundtrack composed by yours truly!

The game was created for this year’s Indie Game Maker Contest (IGMC) which has the developers make a game from start to finish in one month! I had a ton of fun working on this project and we’re really happy with how it turned out.
