Change of direction

2012-03-10 08:14:12 by silkng

I've just made a bold leap. After working full time from age 16 thru to.. *cough* early 30's.. I have gone part time. I wish I could have quid but need to pay the bills.

Why have I done this? To pursue my lifelong dream, to make GAMES! Hell, even when I was 6 years old I was designing gauntlet clones in photodraw. At the time I didn't realise it was game design but looking back it all makes sense. I've never lost my imagination, right now I have some totally new spins on games never before thought of, and I can't wiat to bring them to life.

I'm starting small, with a refreshing take on the puzzle genre. Cats, and dogs, and well, you'll see. It's a formula I don't think has been done before.

I'm coding in C# / XNA 4, starting with windows games. Lets hope that come the time, Valve will accept my steamworks submission!

I'd be keen to hear from any audio artists who might wanna help me on the music / sfx side of things. I mean I can make my own music as you see here, but let's be honest, it's average and I don't want my game to be average in any way. I've made a post detailing what I'm initially looking for here:

And I have a twitter feed if you want to track my developer progress here:!/silktw

I'm back.. I think? Am I?

Well here I am again, with a new track after a few years hiding underneath a walrus.

I'm going through a rough time and finding that music is a good escape. I hope you enjoy this offering, and I equally hope more will follow..! /336857

Hey! I've not been around for a looonng time.. blame my wow addiction! Thought I'd come back and stick more tracks up.

First up we have Blue Sky.. a very mellow track I made some time ago. Please give it a try!

So.. elements.

Greetings fellow humans and cats.

I come to share my musical delights with you. Each track will have a unique flavour to tickle your proverbial tastebuds. Ears. Earbuds. Whatever.

I don't really create mainstream / the stuff you'll hear in clubs. I tend to do original tunes that have themes and, hopefully, get better the more you hear them.

I do tend to create long-ish introductions because I like to tease my listeners and then explode a barrage of musical melody into their brains. You'll usually find on a second hearing, the intro does the tune justice and makes you beg for the main part of the tune, like a hungry dog at suppertime.

Please, enjoy my makings of musical mummifying marzipans.. but don't snip the tune after anything other than 2 minutes. Alien opera, for example, will make your brain explode with happy dizzy thoughts after 2:20, once the organ kicks in. Yeah, an organ, in a trance tune which has an alien "singing". Originality is my middle name. Automaton, on the otherhand, will have you all warm and fuzzy for at least 2 minutes before unleashing some wicked adrenaline which you weren't expecting but love nonetheless.

Well, you get the drift. My songs are like sex. Take your time with them, to get the most out of them.
