This is another piece I made while working on Hardscore Games' Star Admiral. This was one of the earliest pieces I made when I was still trying to determine the right style and it's really nothing more than a rough draft for an alternate approach that almost exclusively uses synthesized instruments.
I was kinda influenced and freshly impressed by the soundtrack of the old (and sadly rather little known) RPG Anachronox and also going a little for that 80's style as found in the first Mass Effect with this one. Also I used it to illustrate the idea of adaptive music, the first part of the track actually being one version and the second one an alternative one that one could seamlessly fade to in a later phase of the game session (it was originally two separate files but I merged them for this upload).
Ultimately I went for predominantly orchestral arrangements that focus on the battle and lift your spirits rather than this pretty dark and emotional style that focuses on the space scenario and suggests that fighting in outer space is pretty darn serious and tragic.
Obviously this track can't be found in the game so I'm uploading it here so it won't go to waste.
