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.

Please do shallows, email them to us at originalstudiosteam@gmail.com please make sure they will be things related to the game though things such as desks, chairs, lockers that sort of thing would be a great look to see what you can do. Hope to hear from you soon.

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.

Well its not really done thing, the page is supposed to be about our game not your game, I understand that our games are sort of similar minus the robots and mine is set in elementary schools rather than universities but I would not go to someone else's page and promote my game, its not the done thing. Instead you could have PM me or whatever. No worries though I deleted your post. But dude good luck with your game hope it goes well.
I am watching you as your game does sound pretty cool!

All the Best

Yes it will be a comedy shooter of sorts, it will have some pretty hysterical weapons and game modes, also some great comic voice acting and sound effects. We are still in the early development stages but you should see some more of what it will actually look like character wise and other content in the next few weeks.
Thanks for the question.

There is not any distortion on any of the tracks, they were all mixed below 0db which = no clipping so maybe you need to have a look at your volume settings you may be overloading your speakers or headset.

Hey all I have only been a member for a few weeks but already I have started work on a mod called Ragnarok Arena Remastered. The project is almost complete but I wanted to get your opinions on what I have produced as well as to make myself known in the group. I am a 3rd year University student in Cardiff Wales UK and I am doing my major project in composition for video games. As a result of choosing this major project I have been looking for work on mods. The music that I want you to hear is just a few short loops as the project I have been working on is a side scrolling shooter which wanted to pay homage to the old games like metal slug, so in keeping with the tradition like the old games I made loops for the game, I put the menu track up and one of the map tracks, if you could give me some feed back that would be fantastic.
Moddb.com Thanks guys and I hope you all have a fantastic new year.
