Tilt to Live and Bird Strike uses the same music.

Were they made by the same people?

No, they weren't. Tilt to Live was developed by OneManLeft, while Bird Strike was developed by PikPok.

Yeh but someone coulda left and started another team or something. Just weird how they use the same music, it doesn't even suit Tilt to Live, I just end up turning the sound off lol.

Seriously? I love the music in TTL, and I think it suits it well.

It fits both games nicely. And who cares if they use the same music? It may have been a coincidence.

I dunno Tilt to Live should have more Geometry wars type of sound design like some trance or something to match the art style. Bird Strike matches the music because it reminds me of a more earthy sound, like being in some European town or something.

Ain't there some law against using music like this or are they packaged for free into some program somewhere?

Most small devs can't afford original music, so they buy it off the shelf. Hit'n Run uses the same music as Zombies vs Aliens, Ezone's games even use some Garageband loops I think... As long as it works. But it won't always be possible to find something that closely matches the atmosphere of the game.

Count me as yet another person that feels the music suits Tilt to Live perfectly. It really does, in my opinion
