hey everybody! :kaopride:

i'm taking free requests for custom bgm! these are specifically for 1 minute songs of any genre and type.

my music is pretty heavily influenced by snes-era jrpgs, but i also like incorporating modern pop influence as well. i've uploaded some samples and i'll be embedding them below!

request template:

short description of the song's context:
reference song/s:
preferred instruments:
anything else i should know:

samples!:

(from dreamfall887's upcoming game, Island Quest!)


(these are from Finnuval's Touch The Stars Game Jam entry, The Dreamforge)

please expect the songs after 3-14 days, depending of course on the song's complexity. hope to hear from y'all soon!

the tropical boss battle bgm and hometown sounds really nice,
and while it's free, and up to 3, I hope you can do 4?

because I need something in the Aqua Dungeon (water), Flame (fire dungeon),
Rock (sand desert dungeon) and Nature (Leaf Dungeon), in a nice way that
fit, with either the instruments used in "HomeTown".

while the dungeon is different than outside, maybe you can make something
fitting out of it? can be shorter than 1min if it can loop nicely.

As someone who has worked with @spillycup before I can attest for the fact that they work quick, are good to work with and deliver quality work in what they do. Decent ppl with good skills.

just to clarify, when i said "reference songs (up to 3)" i kinda meant for you to give me up to 3 songs you wanted your custom bgm to sound like, but i guess i could come up with 4 themed dungeon songs for your game if they were relatively simple. i'll send you a private message!

I do like what I hear there. Though I do wonder what kind of moods do you make? I do have some ideas for songs to request but the only one I can think of is one leitmotif that is mixed into different moods for a character.

Though that would technically be multiple songs. But I do ask what kind of moods do you do first before I send a PM. Given my game is basically a tragedy of sorts, it is curious to know.

i’ve worked on a lot of horror game soundtracks before. it was mostly creepy ambience and chase themes but i also had to make sad piano/orchestral pieces for some of the more emotional moments.
it would be super helpful though if you could give me a couple songs that sound like the music you want me to make!

I'll bite. :p

I've been itching for a theme/[perhaps even Boss battle]/Credits roll song with a certain feel
(a Touch of sadness and darkness, Melancholy?. But also energetic or hopeful), but whatever experiments I've tried myself haven't come to anything.
It's for a SciFi + Fantasy game (and Cyberpunkish?)

Currently been Referencing a lot of Cyber-Rainforce's music.
So perhaps these:
1. 2. And something from WinglessSeraph/YouFulca.
3.

Instruments... Various Electronica stuff, Piano, Strings, (Synthesized voice?)

-- Note: Don't feel pressured to do it though.

Your music is really good! I'm nervous about doing this, but I'd like to request a track and see how it turns out!

Context: Title theme music. The game is an adventure in which the protagonist and a rival are racing to reach a lost temple that contains a powerful artefact, so I would like a sense of mystery and excitement, maybe a bit subdued but with a sense that of approaching something big and powerful.

Reference song: Satori Maiden (Touhou 11)

Instruments: Whatever you feel is appropriate, maybe strings and low woodwind?

Let me know if you feel this request is okay.

i just wanna mention one old tbs game on amiga that had a few neat songs, even with the very limited musik quality back then..

perhaps that gives you some inspiration..
(for example i preffer the part that starts at minute 9.50 from this video.. its kinda in the enemy phase)

Hey,

I'd potentially be interested in a title screen theme (although it looks like the word "free" has already drawn a lot of requests haha). I'll hold off on details until I know you're not inundated with work already.

Also, I'm happy to do something small in return (writing, editing, marketing, ideation, testing) if that helps.

Thanks!

just got the dungeon themes, and they are really, really good,
especially the firetheme.

it might took a bit of time, but it doesn't care on my end that much,
but I'm really happy on the outcome of the themes.

Thank you alot @spillycup for making those themes :)

I can recommend "spillycup" if you want some nice themes,
if you need some, ask him nicely :)

and patience is the key, it's high quality delivered in .wav and .ogg
files ready to use.

I love it when a plan comes together, and especially when Ruby decides to work with me when I decide to code. :kaopride:
Got sick and had to take a few days off work in order to get tested and make sure it wasn't the big one. Felt a lot better today and thought to myself, "Hey now, I can't get tested until tomorrow anyway, I can get so much character art done today!"
....I watched Youtube and browsed this site for hours instead.
>.>
But at least I'm doing the art now! Yaaaaay.......

Didn't wanna spam the feed by posting Denzel's spritelayer separae, but I'm real happy with how this concept is coming along so wanted to share it, innit :D

Not sure how often you take time to play the games sent to you, but if you could give my game a shout & review on steam maybe that would be amazing, only if you like the game of course, I'd love to know which games have been your favorites over the years too.
