A university graduate from Glamorgan university, I achieved a 2.2 BA Hons in Popular Music. My dissertation was about the interactivity of music within interactive media, however focusing on video games composition in particular. Through the past 2 years I have worked on a few different projects ranging from side scrolling shooters (Ragnarok Arena Remastered), first person shooters (Fps Terminator) and fun platformers (Thread Bear). All projects with different needs and styles. With the compositional experience in composing for multiple different genre of games and projects I am able to compose in any style or genre. With over 6 years of experience in musical education including school, college and university and not only working within the indie games industry but also 2D animation cartoons I am able to adapt to any and all types of media. If you are interested in my services for commercial or none commercial productions please do not hesitate to contact me.

Lol that is funny otter, we have not imported our weapons in engine yet as we are still working on the character animations and weapon animations. Don't you worry slingshots you will see and many other classic weapons. We also have a bunch of other new weapons too.

Keep a watch out for them in the news articles.

Do you know how game audio works? On triggers I mean, you compose a epic piece and then strip it back to make new tracks and then the more epic bits come back in depending on the on screen action this is a example of that, I will be stripping this back for Universe Alliance. If you listen to any game sound track you will find most tracks only being around the 2min mark, do you know why that is? Its because they are used on triggers and might be looped. who ever heard of a cinematic scene or a decent one that could not portray what was happening in less then 2 mins? Thats the only reason why I would need to make it longer is if it was for a cinematic that was over the length it currently is.

Hey I am a BA Hons Music Student at the Atrium in Cardiff Wales. I am trying to get some work composing music for mods and games, I am in my final year of my degree and I have been in contact with some big composing names in the business, people like Tommy Tallarico, Jack Walls and Tim Wright. If you have any projects that need music I would love the chance to write for you. If you could get back to me on Dreads.maggs@gmail.com that would be great.

I am not putting it down.
we worked really hard on creating our cell shading effect, despite what people may think it is not just a case of following a online tutorial.
You have to tweek it a lot to get it to work within your own game. It does funny things with materials and lighting.
So this is why we do not want to release it.
I was not trying to put down his comment, just explaining why we do not want to reveal our package. Sorry if it sounded like it.

Thanks for all of your support guys, we hope to get that alpha map out soon.

If it is the textures that you do not like they are not the textures we are using for the game, they are just there so you do not have to look at the checker boards that would be there without them. This way it shows the perception of depth better.
We will be adding a new video of the map in the next few weeks.
