Update #6: Music and More

Hey guys! We're at 116% and climbing, but if we want to meet all of our stretch goals we'll need to pick it up a little. The challenge from here on out is just getting the word out about Antharion. If you want to help us it's easy, simply Upvote us on Steam Greenlight, Like Us on Facebook and Follow Us on Twitter! Another great way to bring awareness to Antharion is just by talking about it on forums.

Music (WIP)

Here are a few tracks that our composer Eric Gallardo has been working on. Please keep in mind these are more like sketches than finished pieces. The first is a dungeon atmosphere, the second an outdoor atmospheric track intended for use in snowy regions and the third is a general usage outdoor atmospheric track. Hope you enjoy and please let us know what you think!

      @Denes, the stepping sound is one of many placeholder sound effects that will be changed before final release. We'll probably end up with 3-4 different walking sounds for different terrain types.

      I really like the music samples. They have a serious vibe which nicely complements the somewhat "cartoony" art style (which I also like BTW). Speaking of audio, the sound effects in the videos are cool as well (love the inventory drop-sounds), except for the step sound, which sounds like walking in mud :) Any chance of replacing those with terrain-based walk sounds..?

      Yeah there will be blended ambient sounds like crickets at night, wind during storms, dripping in dungeons, etc.

      ...and Baldur's gate had that great hawk call as well outdoors.... I'm babbling :)

      One thing I'm wondering.. will there be any blended in ambient sounds? Such as the occasional drip of water in dungeons, a distant scream of agony... I noticed when playing NWN2 recently they did alot of that sort of stuff, very effective with the music. Outdoors you get wind and birds etc. Just an idea.

      Music is exactly what I was hoping for. Great stuff!

      Thanks guys! @Jesse, I totally agree with you, Oblivion's music was overly melodic in a lot of places. I think this type of music should only serve to create a subtle mood and should never take too much of your attention away from what you're doing in the game.

      I really like it! It reminded me a bit of Daggerfall at first, then a bit of Baldur's Gate... and then Skyrim! I guess that's not a bad thing, that it evokes nostalgia and then ultimately feels a bit modern.

      One thing I miss about Daggerfall's style of music is how melodic it was. But, I suppose too much melody can make something grating after awhile. I know a few of Oblivion's town tracks got a little annoying, and I have a very high tolerance for annoyance.

      Definitely, these are serene atmospheres, there will be all different kinds though.

      Very nice, all three of them! Will there be some more lively tracks as well?

      Digging the music samples - each is distinct and evocative.

      I love snowy environments in games and that snowy track hit the spot!
