Update: Summer 2020

Hello there! I haven’t updated this in a year and a half – whoops! Here’s a run down of everything that’s been happening.

I’ve been doing production work on some console titles – we released Megaquarium and Achtung! Cthulhu Tactics over at Auroch Digital.  I’m now working on a couple of really cool titles there!  One I can talk about, Mars Horizon.  It’s a strategy management game where you take the helm of Agency Director at a Space Agency and work your way to having the first boots on Mars.  There’s an announce trailer here – no release date yet but it’s coming to PC, PS4, XB1 and Nintendo Switch

I’m Producer on this title and I’m rather stoked to be so.

Still jamming on tiny synths.  Still down an Acid rabbit hole. Been experimenting with the Volca Nubass lately which is giving me delightfully disturbing bass sounds to wob with…

And finally, ISG is still going strong!  We released Family Tree, our Frutorious Remaster on Nintendo Switch published by Eastasiasoft (who are great publishers incidentally). Here’s the trailer for that:

What’s next for ISG? Well exciting times, because we’ve decided it’s time to retire our old engine and learn Unity.  We’ve made a couple of prototypes and are having a great time stretching our limbs in the third dimension.  I can give you a peep into one of the prototypes, a shmup with the working title DMT:STG

More Acid

Been back making some Acid House. I think I’m nearly at the stage now where I could possibly start planning recording some of these jams now into an album. Not sure yet. But in the mean time, here’s a fun short one I made earlier..

Don’t Die, Mr. Robot! DX – The Soundtrack

The second album release now from Telestro Records, and a nice way to round off the first third of the year.  I’ve released this way before the game’s out because why not hey!

It’s available to buy on iTunes, Amazon Music and a load of other online music stores, or you can stream it on Spotify here.

Or BandCamp here!

It’s got a load of songs by me, and quite a few by me old mucker C303PO.  C303PO is a robot who is fluent in over 6 million forms of bangers and is quite partial to a bit of the old acid house.  He fits so well into the soundtrack it’s a genuine honour to have his tunes peppering this soundtrack.

Rogue Aces Release Date!

It’s ON

Yes yes!  Finally after a few years working away on this bad boy, we’ve got a release date for Rogue Aces.

12th April on Switch, PS4 and PSVita.

We’ve been working with Curve Digital all this time but been keeping quiet about it for a big powerful datablitz 2 weeks before launch.  And this right here is the eye of that storm!  Anyway, here’s the trailer, have a look because it’s great!

We also wrote a piece for the PlayStation blog which you can read here

https://blog.eu.playstation.com/2018/03/27/procedurally-generated-aerial-arcade-shooter-rogue-aces-blasts-onto-ps4-ps-vita-next-month/

Basically, off the scale excited about all this.  The announcement was met with a fair amount of positivity and anticipation which is really reassuring.

Right now though, we’re working away on the Xbox One version, so we better get on with that.

Cheers!

Acid

Hello Chums!  I’ve been making some Acid House lately while trying some experiments for a future soundtrack for a possible new DDMR game.  I’m having fun!  The ‘Hold Up’ sample is the pause sound effect from Frutorious 😉

Pre-Order A Fish Like No Other!

Hello there, bit blustery today. Having a nice time though.

Exciting stuff! The pre-orders are up for A Fish Like No Other by me and Jenny’s band Oh Stevie on all major digital music things. The album is set to release on July 1st.  A Saturday.  It’s good Saturday night music you see.

Feels awesome seeing your own album on iTunes and Amazon 🙂 It’s a life goal I’ve always had, to release a proper album in real stores.  If all goes according to plan, it’ll be out on Spotify, iTunes, Apple Music, Google Play, Amazon, Pandora, Deezer, Tidal, YouTube, Microsoft Groove, ClaroMusica, Saavn, MediaNet, and Shazam.

The reason why its only up for pre-order now and not to buy is because I don’t know how to market an album yet.  I’ve put this out on my own record label, Telestro Records, and I don’t know how to run one of those either.  So I figured just under a month should be enough to work out how to do it all.  RUH ROH!

Here’s some store links.  Still can’t believe it’s real to be honest.

So this’ll be interesting, let’s see how it goes!

Polybius OST – RAM

Polybius is out tomorrow!

It’s a new game from Llamasoft – this one’s a trippy journey into a forbidden lost arcade game possibly made by the CIA to enduce vomitting or something.  Either way it looks absolutely unmissable and possibly Llamasoft’s finest hour.

And like with TxK – llamasoft called upon their various chums and house bands to make the soundtrack.

I made a track for the OST with my awesome wife, Jenny from Jenny and the Giants.

Here it is! Have a listen.

It’s in the original mode at about level 6 I’m told.

I believe the soundtrack will be available to purchase on itunes, bandcamp and the usual places. I’ll post up when it’s out.

Wheee!

More Shit Orchestra

I’ve been having a lovely time making some music with my Shit Orchestra of Small Instruments!  Come and have a listen to what I’ve shat out…

This is a cover of Dub Be Good To Me using my new Korg Volca FM!

This was an original tune I made because I was in a good mood!

And here’s a tune I made for a one-button game jam.  You can play the game here!

Wing Kings is now called Rogue Aces

We’ve changed the name to something that sounds a bit less rudey.

Here’s a new teaser trailer to commemorate this glorious occasion.

We’re now scheduled for release in February 2017 on Xbone, PS4 and PSVita.

Very exciting times!
