    Watching The Detectives OST - Thirty-Second Samples | Will Phillips


    Three tunes, thirty-seconds each, for triple the funk; Will Phillips previews an addition of guitar riffs, horn lines, cymbals and strings fit for a 70s-era cop show.

    Although created for upcoming comedy series Watching the Detectives, Phillips is constantly open to creating a similar, groovy flavor of music for your games.​

    Man Machine Interface | Van Reeves


    Complementary to tech-thrillers and similar works of science-fiction,Van Reeves' Man Machine Interface is an obvious tribute to Masamune Shirow's Ghost in the Shell franchise.

    Perhaps most suited to being used as a thematic intro of sorts, the near-three minute electronic track is available for use in your game projects. Interested? Leave us a request below or connect with us.

    iOS developer Nikola Lajic alias Pixelome's debut in the indie games space arrives in the form of Run Die Retry, an endless runner with retro-modern elements.

    Besides, the game will also mark the first time musician Sam Oz has contributed an entirely Synthwave composition to a game in my year as his manager. Here is a closer look at the game and four-minutes of the 80's I helped bring together back in May.

    Escaping Reality | Caleb Cuzner

    In its run-time of two minutes, Escaping Reality transitions between three very distinct emotions.

    Beginning with mournful longing, it ascends into a victorious techno-like melody before coming to rest after a tense, chase-like mood accentuated by elements of dubstep. Created by game music composer/sound designer, Caleb Cuzner. To make use of it in your games, simply mail sean.b[at]highereg[dot]com or leave a line on Caleb's profile.

    LBA 2 Install music Rearranged/Remastered | Sam Oz



    Why remix/remaster music from Adeline Software's 1997 classic, Little Big Adventure 2? Nostalgia.

    Unsatisfied with the original's MIDI format of music yet still in love with Philippe Vachey's soundtrack, orchestral game composer Sam Oz has reworked the installation screen music of a game that formed his childhood. Here's a complete list of the changes he's made on his version of recording, while Vachey's original to compare against can be heard below.


    Which do you prefer? Let us know!

    Spooky Springs | Will Phillips


    Spooky Springs is the first from a 10-Track OST Will Phillips has been developing for Bodhi Games' unannounced, 3D platformer since Q4 2016.

    Drawing inspiration from Grant Kirkhope's playful style, the near two-minute loop is meant for a haunted, wild-west ghost-town level, appropriately combining guitars, clip-clopping of hooves, and the fiddle. Like it? There's more to come but for orchestral jazz/latin/rock/funk music requests of your own, get in touch.

    Enemy Shows | J.M.D


    Brooding, dark and ambient, here is a sample of cutscene music created for Project R3D's upcoming sci-fi, Metroidvania styled platformer for AGA Amiga devices.

    Called 'Enemy Shows', the track is but one from a 2-hour OST that retro music composer Simone Bernacchia has created for the project. Did you know Simone has been creating music for Amiga homebrew games, commercials and now modern-retro games since 1989?

    Currently accepting original music requests in the retro chip-rock, electronic and ambient genres.

    Doubts | Alfredo Sirica


    Created for a sequence where the film's characters are seen carrying out their daily chores through a period of emotional distrust, this 2-minute composition is called Doubts.

    Of the ambient genre, it is one of fifteen tracks Alfredo Sirica has created for Running Wild Films and 5J Media produced 2016 feature film Porches and Private Eyes. With a background in classical music, Alfredo is actively looking for story-driven gaming adventures to create soundtracks for.

    The Seas Dragon | Sam Oz

    ]

    Orchestrated & named on a whim, the near-three minute composition of 'The Seas Dragon' has Sam Oz express a surge of joyful emotion.

    He does this by starting out with the violin, transitioning towards French horns, voices and the piano, before concluding on a finale of all instruments. Like what he's created? Sam's accepting original music requests for your games from not just the classical, but a multitude of other genres.

    Visit his portfolio or e-mail us at sean.b[at]highereg[dot]com to know more and get started.

    Bridge Strike Intro | JMD


    Bridge Strike has an intro sequence!

    What makes it all the more relevant to myself is that playing in the background is the game's title theme, worked on by retro game music composer JMD - Jovanotti MUST Die whom I've been repping since late 2015.

    Bridge Strike is an upcoming top-down shooter for Commodore Amiga 1200's, in development by Project R3D, with an entire OST developed by JMD.

    Proficient in the retro chip-rock, electronic and ambient genres, he's always looking for new retro game projects to work on. Get in touch by shooting sean.b[at]highereg[dot]com an e-mail or by visiting his profile.

    What do you think of the intro meanwhile? Is it Top Gun enough for your tastes?

    Flight | Van Reeves


    Three and a half minutes of Flight is the perfect feel-good tune for your Monday, I'll say.

    Non-dance yet still synth-driven, mellow yet still energetic, it is a fusion of video game musician Van Reeves' experiments with the cinematic, ambient & electronic genres from the past year.

    And it's available for Creative Commons use in your games! Mail sean.b[at]highereg[dot]com with your request for a copy.

    My Son, My Challenge | Sam Oz


    Sam Oz's 30-second entry that secured third place at the ADAM AudioSoundtrack Competition last year.

    In using the cello, a set of Bulgarian female vocals and four distinct notes of the piano, the musician sought to capture an air of dangerous tension and mystery.

    As always, similar set pieces for your games' soundtracks may be developed by mailing sean.b[at]highereg[dot]com. To view Sam's portfolio or simply applaud his work, do pay him a visit.
