Our music was heavily influenced by various 20th and 21st century film scores, including such examples as David Arnold's music for Wing Commander movie and Jerry Goldsmith's soundtracks for Star Trek, as well as original Wing Commander 3 music by George Oldziey, and utilizes the concept of leitmotif and integrated musical expression.
Inspired by the original gameplay, our talented composer team crafted an expansive emotional score featuring reams of military percussion, swaggering themes and exhilarating action bombast which reflects the epic scale of the Terran-Kilrathi conflict. Jeff Ball, Tim Janssens, Edward Bradshaw, Jeff Broadbent, Peter Dmitriev and Glyn R. Brown created an emotionally intense music score that exceeded all of our expectations.
You know that's right.
