Hello! 👋 I've not been on here for a little bit whilst my game was moving into full production. Here's a few little snippets of what I've been working on: https://mastodon.social/media/G6yl_lfqIUDcMT9qXqU https://mastodon.social/media/RlmReeqytnY99L6BB58 https://mastodon.social/media/DfgI0nfywBPXXnsPl24
It's my birthday 🎂 - to celebrate another year on this pretty green planet I've released my new 4 track EP. It's free, enjoy!
I've been working on ideas for music for my game on and off since Christmas...as a result I've ended up inadvertently recording an EP. I'm hoping to release it on Saturday.
It's a funny beast, since the EP is pretty loud in places and up-tempo here and there too...it sounds a million miles away from how the same samples will be utilised in my game soundtrack. That'll be a far more spooky/hushed affair.
I'm just really glad it exists.
I dipped back into No Man's Sky, though this time on PS4 (I had a terrible time with the PC version at launch - mainly due to a startlingly unstable frame rate).
But now it's stable: It's a slow, and at times very daunting thing, but it really is a little slice of MAGIC.
Complaints of it not being 'gamey' enough are being addressed, but in all honesty I don't think it needs to. It's best when being itself.
It's only a slightly less finicky inventory system away from being rather spectacular.
I *finally* got a level 75 lazer for my Wing Diver last night, the trick was to punch the giant lizard on inferno.
EDF 4.1 is life.
I don't listen to much doom-y stuff these days, but this has those perfect spooky female vocals. Really nice production too: https://ghostwitchdoom.bandcamp.com/track/lunar-hymn
