The Music Update, New Reward Images and the Weapons
Next update! Today we're going to give you a preview of the main theme of Death In Candlewood, composed by Patrick Smith. Here it is:
To put the music in context, we’ve set it against the brooding backdrop of Candlewood Mountains. What do you think? We really think it fits the look and feel of the game. We haven’t finalised the rest of the soundtrack yet, but we will make sure this instrumental, atmospheric feel remains throughout the OST. We’re also using underscores and natural effects to carry Ray on his journey though Candlewood (and perhaps beyond…).
We want to continue making the rewards better and better looking, so you might find some changes later on!
Last weekend we unveiled the weaponry for the game. Melee and short-range fire weapons will be more common throughout Ray’s quests, while the rest will be rarely seen – you can only purchase them at Candlewood’s gun shops.
Weapons are organized into categories (melee, shotgun, etc) and Ray can only carry one of each category at any time. While we hope you have one or two firm favourites within our lovely arsenal, you’ll find it worth your while to chop and change, using different weapons for different situations. A machine gun might be a good way to take out three or four enemies in an ambush in the woods, but it’s going to ruin your attempts to sneak undetected into a facility.
Knives can be thrown and all weapons have a ‘secondary fire’/melee option, but you’ll find that ammunition is a valuable commodity in Candlewood and Ray is often forced to resort to melee weapons. The inhabitants of Candlewood get you through a considerable amount of ammo…
Very interesting project on Kickstarter
Ah! And I couldn’t finish this update without recommending a Kickstarter project I just came across recently. "Dead Synchronicity: Tomorrow Comes Today" Is a fantastic dark point and click adventure with space-time distortions and a dystopian atmosphere!
Only 3 days left for them so hurry up and back this game already! You won't regret!
