Some time ago, I had the great privilege of working on a fabulous game I love called Hoard. Designer Tyler Sigman was wonderful to work with, and welcomed me to do extensive sound design and create an original score. Juno-nominated artist Kearley created this most excellent remix of one of my compositions from the game, and we are presenting it for download it here:
You know, a while back I did an interview which was one of my very favourites with Rob Jones from the Delete Bin (who is fantastic.) He asked really thoughtful questions about Morning Glow, and my experience scoring a video game. I actually can’t remember if I ever linked this interview on my blog, so here it is now! 🙂 Enjoy!
For those who haven’t tried it yet, I highly recommend the videogame Hoard! Available for PS3 and Steam for both Mac and PC, Big Sandwich Games has just released an expansion for it cleverly titled “Dyanmite Roll” on the Steam platform.
I actually did the score and sound design for this fantastic game. Working with Tyler Sigman was a pleasure and I had fun extensively play-testing this title. I think the thing that impresses me the most, besides the awesome gameplay, is that I never actually got bored of it. I would venture to say 99% of people I know working games will eventually loathe the title they are working on by the end (at least a little) due to sheer repetition. This one never managed to wear thin for me, not ever, and continues to be one of my favourite games to this day. 🙂
So if you’re cruising for a fun, quick, addictive game that also works well in groups — be sure to check it out!
Hey fellow game nerds. If you are headed to uber-geek fest PAX, be sure to check out the videogame Hoard from Big Sandwich Games at booth #3012 . Slated for a Fall 2010 release on the Playstation Network, this is a minis/fig inspired tile-style game where you fly around as a little dragon and burn the crap out of things to collect a massive hoard of gold. It’s ridiculously fun! I would know, having played it copiously while composing the score and doing all the sound design. Hope you guys enjoy it as much as I had fun working on it!
Here’s a sneak preview, since the first trailer was just released in honour of PAX:
