Tuba! (and other game music)

The game I talked about earlier, where Deirdra Kiai was collecting graphics in different styles to put together, has been released. It’s called Des Rêves Élastiques Avec Mille Insectes Nommés George, and I recommend that you take a look at it. I was only slightly disappointed that there are no insects named George (I love the title!), but I enjoyed it. This is another dialogue thingy from Deirdra, and contains some things well said. I’ve only played it through once, but I intend to return to it.

My contribution is a badly animated tuba player (me) on a beach, and some tuba playing. (I’ll update the Other Games page eventually.)

Another released game that I’ve done a little work on is 8 Squares in the Garden. I’ve made the soundtrack for this game, based on Lewis Carrol’s Through the Looking Glass. The game doesn’t have a web page for me to link to, so I’ll point you to a forum thread at Adventure Developers instead. (The thread is labeled “open beta…”, but you’ll find the download for the finished game there too.) I’m generally happy about how the music turned out – I wrote it as a wind quartet – but there are some things I’d do differently if I get asked to write music for the sequel. (I hope the planned sequel will get made. “Ad7venture” is currently working on another project.)
