Added a custom mouse into Soul Saga and spent a lot of time looking for composers.

Today I spent a whole lot of time looking for a composer for Soul Saga's theme song. I then spent the remainder of the time implementing a custom mouse cursor.

Implementing the cursor was easy, but Unity apparently does not have a way to make the in game mouse update on your screen as fast as the system mouse. This could potentially make your cursor appear sluggish and slow to respond. For now I will keep it enabled. If I end up getting complaints from users I will just use the default system mouse until I can figure out how to get around this issue.


Finding Soul Saga the perfect theme song for the Kickstarter takes top priority, so I will continue to seek potential composers tomorrow. If I have time I start to work on the town.

I don't know if you might have tried Kevin Macleod- you can listen to his work on his site, he does a lot of different genres but also does custom music production.

Good luck with the composer search. :)
