New Music and Combat

Today Peter Skopa is coming over to work on some new tracks. The focus is going to be the game Cold & Dark. This whole weekend is about that very game. We need to find the right mix of horror, action and suspense that we can apply to the soundtrack. We’re also experimenting with some podcasting ideas that will be used for marketing. But this, like a lot of other things, will be introduced further down the line.

Then of course there’s a game test. Tomorrow we’re going to beat the crap out of the combat and health system and see just how airtight (or not) these mechanics are. I’ve added some new nasty details like critical hits that have a dismembering effect.

We sat up to about three last night, and Skopa finished the mastering of the first song, ”Stasis In the Ghost” a couple of minutes ago.

Heh. I haven't stayed up until three in a long time.

I listen to the Noctum OST fairly often. 'Mosaic of Clues' is my favorite track. It has a ponderous feeling that reminds me a bit of Parasite Eve; i.e. an action-oriented RPG, but with much more tension.
