This week's track: The funky, up-beat main theme to upcoming mobile game Banadoh!

Inspired by the Donkey Kong & Rayman soundtracks.

Couple of things this week:

Rising Legends, which I made SFX for, has been greenlit on Steam! Stay tuned for the full release.

Plus, a new Medikidz track; a casino big band number inspired by the Grim Fandango soundtrack.

I wrote an old school 90s-shmup-style track last week.
Lots of hair metal influences with retro midi guitar sounds XD

Rising Legends has been greenlit! Watch this space for the full release


I'll be posting a video showcasing my sound effects in Rising Legends, to my Audio Demos playlist, tomorrow morning.

As mentioned last week there is the link to my Rising Legends SFX Alpha Demo. It only contains sounds from the first stage, so you will have to wait
until the full release to see all of them in action!


I will be attending EGX: Rezzed at Tobacco Dock in London at the end of this week, so if any of you are going, I may see you there...

Hello again to everyone I met at EGX: Rezzed! I had an awesome time connecting with some amazing developers and checking out what the industry has to offer over the next few months.
Particular highlights for me were: Tokyo 42, Pool Panic and the upcoming Renowned Explorers DLC!

In other, more personal, news...

Bananadoh! has been released! Available on Android, iOS and in your browser.


You can hear my music for it here:


I'll probably put together a soundreel and gameplay video soon as well (Y)

I've been pretty busy this last week, working on a couple of new projects and getting ready for the recording studio with my folk-rock band Green Diesel!
We started putting the rhythm tracks down over the last couple of days, and tomorrow we'll be adding some guitar solos

You can see a fun time-lapse video of us here:
(I'm the one with long hair and glasses playing guitar)


I also put together a short gameplay video of Bananadoh, showcasing my music and sound effects in action (Y)

I've been working with Harley Game Studio on their game Apocalypse Alpha recently.

Here's a short showcase of some of the gunshot sounds I designed for them.

Another sound effects demo track, this time impacts!


I'll be following up with a footsteps showcase soon.

I have many footsteps for you this week: Dirt, sand, puddle, linoleum...


These sounds were another part of my work on Apocalypse Alpha. Keep an eye(ear) out, they'll be implementing in-game shortly
