Since I can’t name the game that I’m working on, and because I don’t want to keep calling it “the new game”, I’m going to start referring to this game as “Project SMR”. This will refer to the game that I’m working on with my friends back home in Michigan.
Anyway, I finished three more character select screen themes since the last time I updated the blog. As before, each of these tracks are vastly different in style and it’s been a great challenge to take on. I’m happy with all of them, but there are a few that I wrote that I’m super excited for you all to hear.
Writing in such a variety of styles has allowed me to experiment with all sorts of instruments and it’s a lot of fun. I’ve used acoustic guitars, electric guitars (clean and distorted), bass guitars, banjos, violins, drum kits, a brass band ensemble, timpani and other tuned percussion, as well as all kinds of synth sounds. This is definitely one project that never gets boring for me in the composition department.
As always, I’ll try to keep you up to date on what I’ve been doing. Sorry for the lack of specific details for the project, but I can’t spoil the game before it’s even made! You understand, right?
