Author Comments

Throughout the week for Pixel Day, I'm uploading the soundtrack I made for an unreleased, unfinished fan tribute game of The Thing film from the 80's I was a part of in 2012, and stopped later in 2013. The soundtrack which consists of 7 songs. I was also a writer, working with Saminat, Deathink, and Schulles on the game.

This track is a cover of the opening credits theme of the film, and was going to be the menu music for the game, and opening sequence music.

This sounds like something that should have been but never was...

RealFaction responds:

Yeah tell me about it :( that's pretty much what the game is. I wish it could have been finished.

Awesome! One of the best movies from the 80's in my opinion, would love a tribute game to it! :D You still making it or is it a canceled project?

RealFaction responds:

Well it's like I said, it was unfinished lol years ago we stopped. I have a post on this on my page. Yeah it's a shame because well one of them kinda bailed on it. :S But I'm trying to see if the guys can find the unfinished stuff so we can at least upload a video or something on Pixel Day showing what we did get finished :). Thanks! Yes we all love The Thing.

PS: My post on my profile talks about a playlist im building as I'm uploading two songs from the unfinished soundtrack of the game from today to Sunday so keep your eyes peeled! There's another one called "Outpost 31" that's out. :)
