  1. New original soundtrack released! I am very pleased to share my music for MazeQuest 3, a hybrid collection of Western (yes, Cowboys and Indians) and chiptune elements, all built within a tracker, post-processed in ProTools, and featuring zyko on guitar. Enjoy!

  2. Me likey the TMNT tunage... I may consider putting something together for this.
  3. Happy to announce that the sequel is... now available! (Sadly due to COVID-19 the game itself has been delayed a bit, but the developers were happy to let me share the soundtrack) https://mazedude.bandcamp.com/album/mazequest-3-original-soundtrack-game-version It's an RPG but also a Western, with distinct chiptune and 9-bit vibes, so, yeah it's a hybrid approach but also quite enjoyable in that aspect. Let me know what you think, thanks!
  4. I work in Syracuse, and live in a nearby suburb. I only just found out about this con today. Definitely interested, but may not be able to attend due to other obligations... that said... I'm going to TRY because having this in my own backyard sounds freakin' cool.
  5. Always enjoy me some tracker music. Listening while I work. Climbing the Tree of Life is my fav so far, but haven't finished yet. (Btw you'll probably want to remove the "s" in "https" from the link to your website above (or just install a security certificate), clicking it gives an error.)

    Turns out the OST was by up-and-comer Megan McDuffee! She just announced the list of links where to OST can be found: https://ffm.to/rivercitygirlsost (A few other familiar names appear farther down the tracklist too, interestingly enough.) She also has some pretty cool stuff on her Bandcamp - https://meganmcduffee.bandcamp.com. (The Hostile Takeover soundtrack is quite nice, great replay value.)
  7. Ooh, ya gotta do Double Dragon. That one is just... priceless.
  8. It was either Rygar or Karate Champ for NES. I remember saving up my allowance, $5 per week, so that when I had enough we could go to Toys R Us and I'd pick out a game. Rygar was awesome. However, some of my purchases made this way were not so awesome. Like Deadly Towers. Or the Adventures of Bayou Billy. But, I'll say this - after buying those with my own money, I was determined to beat them. To date I've beaten Rygar probably 20 times. Deadly Towers... once. Bayou Billy... once. Agreed, great topic.
  9. Man, now you're making me feel old. Although, yes, I still listen to some of the classic tracker tunes from the 90s, and occasionally will craft an homage to 'em. Nice to know there are still some folks out there who "get it." And for those who don't, they get to taste the good ol' days in a new way. (Loved your recent collab with Wave btw!)
  10. Lovely and haunting. Fantastic job with the woodwinds; I like me a good pitch bend and an exotic flair, and you managed to capture both. Percussion and piano merge well to craft a bed under the melodies, and I especially like the understated yet deliberate low piano notes. I guess my only complaint would be that in terms of chord progression and song structure, it doesn't vary as much as I'd like, but hey, that has to do with the source material, so no worries there. All in all, great job.
  11. Say, thanks! I hope you like the game; would be happy to pass on any comments or feedback to the developers. It was actually Austin Wintory who kinda inspired me to pursue this. He spoke at MAGFest a couple years back and said something along the lines of "it's not that hard to find game developers these days. There are so many indie projects all over the place. So if you want to be considered for the music, just reach out. Keep reaching out. Eventually someone will bite." And, that's what happened. I had the whole "I want to compose a soundtrack" itch, and like, within a week, I booked this one. It took a very long time to finish and really there was very little money involved, but hey, achievement unlocked.
  12. Thanks Jay! I appreciate the feedback. Are you saying "gritty" in a good way, or a bad way...? Those are primarily square waves, plugged into the tracker, along with some triangle and sine and white noise. Post-processing was extremely minimal. I wasn't going for a well-produced chiptune album deal, rather, showcasing the simplicity of the drafts that then evolved into something bigger. No reverb or EQ added, etc.
  13. Hey everyone! I'm happy to share that as of today, my name is officially attached as "composer," not "remixer," to a 100% original game soundtrack. It's an indie game, but still, I had a blast stepping into RPG mode and crafting the various map themes, battle music, castle, shop, and church tunes... lots of good stuff. I'd like to invite you to give it a listen, and let me know what you think! (Also check out the game, it's out on Steam and actually pretty challenging.) https://mazedude.bandcamp.com/album/mazequest-2-original-soundtrack For your listening pleasure, the album also includes several bonus tracks that didn't actually make it to the game, and, a whole bunch of chiptune concept pieces. I'm not a keyboard player, so drafting in 8-bit seemed like a time-friendly way to present thematic ideas without getting hung up on samples and such. Have fun comparing the chiptunes to the final orchestrated pieces; some are very close, and some changed a bit during the orchestration. Enjoy!
  14. Just bought it on Bandcamp. Congrats man.
  15. I actually wrote an e-mail to DJP about the site crash. I was very concerned.
