Hello dear followers

We have finally had the chance to release the long-awaited blog. In this, we wanted to share some of the things that Aniketos our Lead Sound Designer who created important recordings and music for our project compiled for you. In general, our work adjusts during the course of our project, regardless, we wanted to show you some things in the meantime. Recently we changed the blog posting structure of our project to be every month instead of once every 3 months. 🫂

We aim to share descriptive content with you as much as we can. In this 1.0.4 Blog we wanted to provide information about music and sounds. We wish you all the best and a happy new year. 🎄


Gotta be honest: Something about the bayonet charge at ~0:50 filled me with terror for some reason...which is EXACTLY what a massed bayonet charge in first-person should do. Bravo in that regard. For the soundtrack, I'd recommend looking at the much-loved but rarely discussed anime classic: Legend of the Galactic Heroes (dumb name, but so is Star Wars if you think about it), it's essentially anime space War & Peace and it makes heavy use of orchestral pieces from Mahler, Dvorak, Schubert, and Wagner, among just about every other classical composer who ever existed.

Here's a link to some of the non-original music they use:
The OST is good too, but I don't suppose you could get the rights, nor would it fit exactly with the sound-aesthetic of the mod, but I'd give it a listen and make that determination for yourself.
