Hello, Gabriel Gambetta pointed me toward this thread: http://forums.indiegamer.com/showthread.php?t=6201 I am very surprised. Lately I hired a marketing expert to begin a targeted advertising campaign and I AM PAYING HIM A LOT OF MONEY. After having a discussion with him, I decided to FIRE HIM and ask another person to do his job in a better way. About our prices, if you think they are high, please read this email I received from Gabriel himself: ------------------------------------------ This is an excerpt from a (p)review of Pirate Poppers : It would be remiss not to mention the gameâ€™s extraordinary production values. From the orchestrated music soundtrack (one of the best weâ€™ve heard in a long time) to the gorgeous graphics to the high-quality sound effects, Pirate Poppers is a treat for the senses. Oh, and wait until you get a load of the exploding ball power-up that blasts everything in sight, leaving the screen shaking and your speakers rumbling! Beta test also indicates players really like your music. Congratulations for a job well done! ------------------------------------------- I think the excerpt says it all. Marino Sounds is a very professional studio and we bring best Los Angeles studios techniques used in Hollywood movies into lower budget projects. This means you can have impressive quality music and sounds when a Los Angeles studio would ask 50 times our prices for the same quality. What are OUR GOALS? as stated in our "about us section": To create high quality productions for our customers without the expensive budgets that such quality works require. How we can do that? Quality is obtained through passion, skill and inspiration. It is not only technical work, but also a highly creative process. This applies to both the soundtracks and sound effects. (Very good original sound effects require the sound designer to be highly creative and resourceful. This is a natural talent that not everybody can learn).Marino Sounds is more than a studio. It is a mission, a passion, and a cocktail of enthusiasm mixed with talent. Our ambition is to bring audio quality to a whole new level and provide such quality for all projects, no matter how big or small. Every project is important to us, and no effort will be spared in delivering quality work! I think also INDIES deserve QUALITY. If you don't think so, I don't mind, but I'll continue with my goals, delivering Hollywood quality works for all projects, no matter how big or small.
