[music] Fire Emblem: Phoenix Saga 2011-08-21 19:46:28
Hi there guys, Klokinator here. I'm a developer from the Rpg Rpg Revolution forums and I'm making a game called Fire Emblem Phoenix Saga. I've been working on the concept for about 8 months now and I've even got some good beta chapters working. I've got a whole team ready and we're looking for pretty much one thing, a musician.
But first some history on this game. If you've ever played the Fire Emblem games, you already know they're a Turn Based Strategy game with heavy RPG elements involved. In the first american release, you play as Lyndis, who is on a quest to see her grandfather, the king of Sacae (Maybe lord, I don't recall) before he dies. She learns that her uncle Lundgren is poisoning the king and trying to kill him to take over the throne. (The bastard!)
The next segment of the game is played from the perspective of Eliwood, young lord of Pherae, who is on a quest to save his... father... (Sounds familiar) Eventually the game branches off into a dozen sidestories and a good main plot that is very compelling. The characters all have great personalities and the game feels more like a piece of history than just a game.
Unfortunately, Intelligent Systems (The original creators of Fire Emblem) have not been doing justice with many of their latest Fire Emblem games. FE9 had a really amazing story and was extremely fun. FE10 had a terrible story but at least was still fun gameplay-wise. After that, they've stuck to remakes of old NES games for the last 2 or 3 years and it's getting a bit old.
This developer named BwdYeti decided to take matters into his own hands and recreate the Fire Emblem game system from the ground up in RPG Maker XP, then release it as a fangame kit for people to make their own games with. I first heard about this 8 months ago, so when he released it publically I was ready for action :) (I had some prior experience with using the kit anyway but that's another story)
I won't bother with things like storyline or whatnot, you can read about it in my release topic at RRR. What I need from Newgrounds members is a musician, maybe two, who know how to write good classical music at my request for specific scenes.
There is also soulblud who has written some songs I will be using as well.
I also plan to use a couple of MaestroRage's songs, though I don't think I have asked him yet. They are in my plans though, as I would hate people stealing from me just as much as me stealing from other people. For example there is Apocalypse, Rage of the Champions, and Day of War.
The above music should give you some idea of the themes I am going for. I will not be selling this game for any money at all (It is based on a copyrighted franchise and is made with a copyrighted engine) so the only reason I am making this game is to expand my creative horizons. I can't offer you money, unless you are extremely unbelieveably good at what you do, and even then I'm a poor man and can't offer much. However, you will get your track in my game, and hopefully FEPS will reach enough popularity to where you'll be able to get your music recognized.
Thank you for reading, I look forward to any help I can get. Also, if you are a big time Fire Emblem lover, you may be intereted in reading one of my older FE Game Idea blogs. Enjoy!
