Need Music For An Rpg 2011-06-16 03:52:05 Reply

Hello,

I dont know if this is the right forum or not, but here goes. I have been working on a side project (flash game) on and off for about 3 years now and from up to this point I have been doing all the work. It is going to be in beta stages soon and most of the stuff has been made. I just realized I am terrible at making music, so I was wondering if there are any cheap musicians out there who have a music collection I can use. This is a hobby and I am pretty much running on zero budget, so I am wondering how much it would cost me.

Here is a link to some of the current screenshots of the game:

All the music up here is free as long as you ask the musician for their permission to use it. Feel free to check out my tracks but it is dance/trance so I am not sure what sort of genre/style of music you are after?

I gotta say, I'm impressed with your work! It far surpasses a lot of the crap we get on here!

You can use any of my songs if you like, I do have some more RPG-esque songs from my first album, but I don't have any of those songs up on NG since the quality isn't that great.

If you have any sewers or what not you can use this: http://www.newgrounds.com/audio/listen/3 76876

I'll allow you to (if you even care to use any of my junk) use my songs for free as long as you give me credit.

Thanks for the replies. I am looking for 16-bit style music with a JRPG theme, but I am open to new ideas. I guess I will look around audio.

Damn it, that's pretty much how my first album sounds. Oh well.

I really want to give this a shot but the only completely relevant examples i can show you are a few years old (2006-2007) and in MIDI format. I can send them through if you really want though.

There's also this which is compositionally relevant I suppose! (obviously I'd use different instruments for this stuff)

If you need a sort of "Zanarkand" style piano theme I can probably do that too.

Hey, you might want to give this one a listen if you're into a bit more retro-approach to rpg music:

Or these two for something a bit more FF-ish:

Hades you have music similar to mine with what I listened to, and you're the same age, a little older, and you do the "=" thing with your titles, except I don't use spaces.

I've decided I like you just based on that.

I am not experienced with 16-bit, but if you need any orchestral music for your rpg, that's up my ally. I can compose pieces specifically for your project and do so for what you think is fair, even if that is free in this case. Credit in a game is what I am seeking.

I would be willing to do a whole original soundtrack for your game if you wish, free of charge (character themes, battle, boss, win theme, anything you want). My favorite musical style to work with is that of a JRPG, and I have the ability to emulate 16-bit audio. Generally I mix acoustic instruments with electronic, but as far as the actual musical content goes the 16-bit texture can be applied anywhere.

Perhaps some of these might be relevant:

If you like the style and are interested in hearing some samples emulating 16-bit please let me know and I'll whip something up that matches the style of your game. Contact me at cleod9(at)gmail.com if you are interested.

How 'bout "Don't be a dick."? That's generally a good piece of advice.
