Soundtrack an Epic Doom Mod


Recommended Posts

(EDIT: Some people thought I was a spambot. If you'd rather not click the link in case you're still skeptical, just search "Marines of UAC Exigency" on google and you'll find lots of forum posts regarding the project etc., that should clear it up. You can also search the same thing on Youtube to see an old teaser trailer).

Hey there! Regular listener of OCRemix's quality tracks. I make music myself, as well as a few game remixes but I haven't submitted any here/

Today I present to you the opportunity, for a community that clearly loves oldschool games as much as I do, to soundtrack an epic reiteration of a classic game. Well, not exactly just a reiteration. I urge you to check this page out:

http://www.moddb.com/mods/5073/marines-of-uac-exigency

This is a mod I'm working on for Doom II, in the enhanced sourceport of the engine called EDGE. I've been working with Doom for the better part of my gaming life, and with EDGE for almost as long. With this mod I am effectively trying to make the most complete, entertaining and dynamic singleplayer experience for Doom, ever - not to mention feature a rich and twisting story with memorable characters. I would love to have the ultimately talented people of OCRemix help me out in building a truly kickass soundtrack for this thing!

Of course you will be thanked gratuitously, but you will also be credited heavily in the documentation and the in-game credits, so no need to worry about the recognition there.

"But Nick/RePENT!" you say. "I thought you said you make music yourself? Why can't you do it?" I could do it, and in fact have already made two tracks for the project. However, I would not attempt to fully soundtrack this project because I want everything in it to be of the highest quality that this engine can handle. While I can handle that in terms of graphics, gameplay and level design, I don't feel I am competent enough musically to do the rest of the mod justice. In essence, QUALITY CONTROL, a quality control that rules myself out!

This project will be ongoing for a while in multiple episodes and will give you the opportunities for plenty of different styles (everything ranging from intense guitar-raging to reflective and wondrous ambient tracks, from uplifting symphonic epics to atmospheric disturbing noise). Thanks in advance for any help you offer. Any questions you have about this thing I'd be glad to answer! And no, the engine is no longer limited to MIDI/MUS, we're talking real music tracks!

P.S. If you have voice acting talent, that is also hugely valued for this project and I'd love to hear from you. :razz:

Spambot, no doubt.

You're kidding me, right? Have you checked out the link? If you'd rather not click the link in case you're still skeptical, just search "Marines of UAC Exigency" on google and you'll find lots of forum posts regarding the project etc., that should clear it up. You can also search the same thing on Youtube to see an old teaser trailer.

An excuse to make a whole bunch of Doom-esque original music?

Doesn't have to be Doom-esque whatsoever, in fact something different would be cool, whatever kind of music that fits the game. But nothing wrong with Doom-esque as long as it's good haha!

I'll drop you a line soon, thanks for the offer.

P.S. I AM NOT SPAMBOT:razz:
