Hi all, I'm new to the forums but not oc remix, and definitely not video games :)!!

Looking for composers to provide background music for Apps that my company is making.

Here's the copy-paste:

About the Developer:

We are a small company - the name is Player Escape - and we are based in So Cal.
www.playerescape.com

We aren't quite in the same niche as most games you find; our niche is involves a little bit of the real world and a little bit of gaming. I don't really like to say educational or casual, but -for sake of brevity- those are the most broad and popular categories that our games fit into.


About the Game(s):

We actually have our first game out as of last week (its called Office Peons) on the App Store. You are CEO of a Top 500 company in the US, and the game is similar to, like, a Mafia-Wars, but revolves around real-time stock market readings.

You will need iTunes to download this, but it is completely free - so feel free to share the link!
http://itunes.apple....ons/id459019405

Having said that, this posting was originally intended for an upcoming game, but we can also considering BGM for the first and can easily update the Office Peons with BGM via an updated version.

The said upcoming game is going to be based on The President and the US, and our thinking is that the game will be more popular, as it has a shorter learning curve, and elections are coming up! More details will be given selectively, as we are trying to keep the idea under wraps - just trying to be cautious, here, I apologize if that turns some off.

Non-Profit vs. Profit:
Both games are/will be free to download. Office Peons has in-game advertisements, while the second game is planned to have in-game transactions.

About the Music:
We only really need 1 music loop for either game. Genre of music can be a catchy, soothing, beat like in Tiny Wings:


Chip-Tunes are definitely welcome (which is why I'm posting here first-because I like this music!), both should have large-scaling, uptempo beats:
For Office Peons, SNES sim city music is what i envision would fit nice:



The second title can be something uptempo as well but more in line with leadership and Presidents:



Compensation:
This is a tough one. As we are starting out, we aren't looking to pay money for the tracks. The compensation will be your name listed in the credits (which can be better than money, if all goes well).

If you are more inclined to sell tracks, we will consider purchasing them - but again realize we are a startup venture and will favor a more inexpensive solution first. Also, if we purchase the tracks - which have to be original works - they will become property of the company, naturally.

If there is a middle ground, such as licensing, please let us know as well. We don't want to feel like we are robbing anyone of anything. :mrgreen:

And lastly, we have a bunch of ideas, so having a successful history with a person/group can only help us both out when we launch the next game, and the next game.... :-D


EDIT: please contact info@playerescape.com with interest and/or samples (links to websites are ok).

Hi OCR,

Thanks to all that showed interest to providing BGM for our App, Office Peons. We went with Meteo Xavier's work as I really liked it and felt it fit the "feel" I was going for. Download the app today to check out his music (remember its free)!

http://itunes.apple....19405?ls=1&mt=8

Credit is given to him both in-App and on our website:
http://playerescape.com/opcredits.aspx

A big thanks to Meteo Xavier for his contribution!

Other news: we are still developing our second title.. Fortunately for those that wished to have contributed to Office Peons, we are still looking for opportunities and good talented musicians to help work with us (again, not just for this next title but going forward as well).

Touch base with us (or me) about this opportunity if interested!

PS-It doesn't matter how old this thread is... just reach out.. you never know!


Finally, help us spread Office Peons, we love to grow our games, player base, and enjoyment!

Yep - working hard to publish the aforementioned second app. We have not yet settled on a BGM piece for this, so please all submissions are welcome!

And thanks for the like on Facebook!
