pixietricks selected for Civilization IV: Beyond the Sword

Recommended Posts

I pretty much registered mostly so I could congratulate Pixietricks on this--this is great news. You've been one of my favorite artists here since I first heard Journey's End; and, the Civilization series has been my favorite computer game series since I first played Civ I back in '95. So, when I saw this news posted on the CivFanatics frontpage, I nearly flipped.

I was already looking forward to Beyond the Sword coming out, now I'm just looking forward to it 10x more.

Say, are you able to give us any more information about the song? Is it going to be in English, another language, or a mix? (Civ4's opening was in Swahili, Civ4 Warlords' was in Arabic -- both are incredible) If you can't say anything yet, no big deal; I'll just have to wait 'til July.

Anyway, again, congratulations! KF

EDIT: If anyone's curious, Christopher Tin offers some samples on his website, including the opening "Baba Yetu" and "Coronation" from Civilization IV: http://www.christophertin.com/samples.html

See if you can get into Blizzard. They might need you sometime soon.

Since Blizzard doesn't make games anymore, that would be a severe waste of talent.

Muy congratulations!

Haven't gotten the charts yet, but from what I know, it's looking like a four-minute long, epic choral piece for the main menu screen. :D

I bet you'll quite enjoy taking part in that kind of piece. ^_^

I just noticed "Disco Dan" in the first post though... like a second ago.

/mu/ mostly sucks though, 99% of it is about forgettable metal bands or some dead form of rock.

WOOPS! Christopher Tin is not the composer on this project; I was misinformed. Veteran Civ-series composer Michael Curran will be writing the main theme, as the lead audio designer. If you think you may have mentioned the wrong info anywhere, please help clear up the rumors. ^-^

Oh! He was one of the composers (remixers?) for the Civ IV: Warlords theme, which is nearly as good as Baba Yetu. Regardless, I'm still looking forward to it. ...do you know if it's a rearrangement of an existing song, or if it's something all-new? KF
