Retro Assault Soundtrack –

RA_Soundtrack001 I got a lot done on the score front today. I seemed to be in the groove with the creative powers that be, working away at one of the main sector themes. I think I’m going to start naming these since we’re not really having tunes assigned to individual sectors anymore, but rather working off a set of Mission / Boss counterparts that will change throughout all the missions.

While I was working on a particular track today, I subconsciously worked in the old classic Space Invader music as one of the polyrhythms underneath everything. I didn’t notice It until I was scrubbing through individual tracks really slowly checking harmonies. I start scrubbing each line and its going Duh….Duh….Duh…Duh.. The Classic Space Invaders March. lol. When the track is played at normal speed, you cant tell at all, but I thought it was kind of a funny little Easter egg.

Originally I was going to make a larger score for RA, and as time went on I kind of scrapped the idea due to time constraints, but I’m really digging where these tracks are going so I think I may just expand all the tracks and assemble a full length soundtrack for RA. I think that would be pretty cool. Not that I’m not pressed for time or anything, but if I can squeeze it in, I think I’m going to try to stick to the original plan. It’s mostly orchestral electronica with some rock elements tossed in. Either way, I think the themes are going to be pretty cool when done, and I cant wait to get them into the game. More to come shorty.
