Update #15

A Musical Update from Mike Skalandunas

Hey again everyone,

I’d like to give a quick update on the music of Arakion. Since the last time I posted, I have finished up the in-game music. I expanded on the melody used in the original in-game teaser, and made it more full. This is meant to be a pleasant piece that plays while the player is building up the town, hence the title “Rebuilding.” 

Rebuilding by Mike Skalandunas

Besides that, I’ve been working on remastering the main theme, and also finishing up “The Destruction.” From there, I’ll continue on to the music for the dungeon and also the battles.

I hope you guys like the finished track, and are excited to hear the rest in game and on the soundtrack. Thank you again for supporting Arakion and be sure to tell your friends about it!

Mike

Hey guys it's Chris Taylor here, 

I just wanted to make a quick mention that because this update was released a little delayed and due to the presidential debates being tonight. I'll be releasing the update that was scheduled for tonight, tomorrow. Thanks for everyone's understanding and I'll see you then.

-Chris

      I really like this, it perfectly captures this nice relaxing atmosphere I love about towns in games and it gives this sense of safety and a future that's beginning to come together. Keep up the great work!

      Nice ambient track indeed. It's going to be a good soundtrack with more tracks of this quality;

      Mike, are you sure you didn't do music for blockbusters like Braveheart and The Last of the Mohicans?
      What I'm trying to say is, I like it VERY much, in case you wondered. ;) Thank you for sharing this with us, can't wait to take in the town in all its rebuilt glory with this playing softly in the background. Excellent.

      Nice music. This soundtrack will join my gaming soundtrack collection (I'm starting to have a lot of those).

      Music sounds great. I really like the tone you've got going (sad but hopeful), and I like that you're not just doing standard strings-and-fanfare. Really glad I'll be getting a copy of the OST. :D
