Video game music composer wanted! 2008-08-19 20:15:07 Reply

Hello, I and a partner (and a few assorted side helpers) are working on a indie game for the PC. Its called Momotaro. Its a freeware game (hopefully this will change to Wiiware possibly!) I did have a composer originally, I forget what he goes by here, but he's gone now as I haven't heard from him in months unfortunately. And its a shame really as he made some really amazing and high quality stuff. Momotaro is a platforming adventure game, meant to feel like a retro arcade with modern twists. Programming is coming along very well and a demo should be completed soon.
All music for the demo has been completed now so there isn't a very big rush, but we really don't want to worry about music for the whole game, so we want as much of it done as possible.

I just need a composer who can produce Cave Story sounding music, meaning it cant be all fancy orchestral or trance and stuff, I need and would like simple, psuedo-8bit sounding Cavestory-ish stuff. I'll discuss what each track should sound like or represent for anybody who is interested.

You can contact me at:

Hi! I am interested, just one thing, when you say no real rush do you mean the deadline is around like 2 weeks or months etc, just wondering!

You can check out some of my music if you'd like, none of it is 8-bit like you said, but I can do it
Its great fun to make!

Peace

Really its when ever you want, but it would be nice to get it within a 2 week time, mainly because the demo will be finished by then and Its really fun to hear (:
Wow your stuff is amazing! All of it. I just hope you can do more upbeat stuff, like Yoshi's Island or Mario. Do you have an email? It would be a lot easier to give you the information and such for the tracks.
And for any other people, the job is still very much open as we need 20-25 more tracks. (7 have been completed already) I doubt just one person would be able to do all that.

Sounds really interesting. I'd love to have a go at it. I really love 8-bit music, though I rarely manage to get a full track out. Maybe now I'll have enough motivation to :P

Your game looks great. Awesome screenshots.

I suppose I'll try to get to work on something and email you about it to see if it's alright. Expect a PM from me just for clarity and such :)

Well me personally, am seeking a future in video game composition, im 17 and have 5 or 6 years ahead of me before some people in the industry even began to compose music, so any experience for me is golden :D

Hey! 8-bit music? I love 8-bit music and have a wide knowledge of 8-bit music from the NES days, not just the songs themselves but many compositional techniques used. This is thanks to my "8-bit philharmonic" project which you can check out here: www.myspace.com/8bitphilharmonic

Anyway as for this project, I'd be interested in doing a track or two. The game looks really solid from those screenshots. I have 2 8-bit pieces currently on my account, and they are labeled "(8-bit)" so they will be easy to find. Also, please check out my other stuff.

I am currently working on a lot of music for another game so I'm in the sidescroller-scoring mood haha.

Let me know!

You should make it 8-bit music that then turns into some epic techno VG song :p

Myself and a buddy of mine are always looking to write music for Flash / Freeware Games. Some of my personal stuff you may like (as demo's of what I can do) are here:

Sunny Seaside Harbor

Underwater Observatory

The Journey Begins

Those are just a few of mine. Here are some from my partners and I account together from KTRecords:

Moments of Inspiration (most of the work is done by my partner Jason)

Lost in Ambience

just let me know what you'd like done and we're on it. Thanks.

It's certainly not out of the question. What file format would you like your songs in?

8bit does sound like it could be fun... If kelwynshade is in, I'll give it a shot as well.

I'd like to help as well, but I have no samples. It's been THREE DAYS since I uploaded my music to Newgrounds and the audio mods havn't approved it STILL.
