Her Interactive’s Nancy Drew: Ghost of Thornton Hall is now available. The trusty Nancy Drew adventure series is as strong as ever in this installment. Is there really something supernatural going on at Thornton Hall? Surely not… ? A few years ago, I provided the music for the Nancy Drew Dossier series and had a blast helping get Nancy Drew into the casual market. Those were great games. And I’m happy to have helped out with the latest in their main adventure series. I provided most of the sound effects/sound design and also did much of the audio scripting, implementing and balancing all aspects of the audio.
I am very pleased to announce I won an award for Outstanding Sound Design from the LA Web Fest for my work on the web series Chop Socky Boom. I was very happy to be able to provide the music for the show as well as do much of the post production audio. It also allowed me to write one of the most fun tunes I’ve ever made, Demon Fighter – now with its own music video! The series also won awards for outstanding ensemble and direction. Go watch it if you haven’t yet – well worth it.
Quick Shooter, by Spotkin, has been released for Android, meaning it is now available in the Google Play store as well as the Apple App Store. The game is an Old West shooter – draw your gun and shoot before your opponent. Lots of fun – I’ve been playing long since my work on the project ended (I did all the audio – music, sound effects, and voice).
GeekSeekers, the hilarious new web series starring Jen Page and Monte Cook, has premiered its first two episodes! Follow Jen and Monte as they unravel scary, spooky mysteries surrounding “haunted” locations throughout the NorthWest (one of the scarrriest directions!). I had the pleasure of writing two songs featured in the first episode, one of which got the karaoke treatment.
I’m doing the music and sound effects for Quick Shooter, a new game from Spotkin Games. From the Spotkin site: “Quick Shooter is a Old West style dueling game. Duel one on one against fun and quirky computer opponents while earning items and cash. Compete against your friends to get the best draw and be the fastest Quick Shooter around!”
I’ve been playing it and it is a blast (pun intended). You’re going to want to play this game, too. I will let you know once it’s available.
The new website, long overdue, has finally been launched. Please take a look around. If you see anything weird, please let me know.
I haven’t been updating this page over the last couple of years, being very busy with new projects and the biggest new project of all, our new baby boy (well 8 months old now, but still has the new baby smell), but look for a relaunch of the site as well as a new sister site directed toward film and other non-game media music. In the meantime, please peruse the updated music player as you wait for the relaunch.
Also, apologies to Chrome users for the funky layout. That will all be fixed with the relaunch, I promise.
Tiger Eye: Curse of the Riddle Box, the premiere title from developer PassionFruit Games is set to be released April 28. Based on the book by New York Times bestselling author Marjorie M. Liu, the game is a paranormal romance breaking new ground in the casual game world. This isn’t the same old tame hidden object puzzle adventure. Brought to you by the team that won Yahoo Games’ 2009 Hidden Object Game of the Year for Nancy Drew Dossier: Resorting to Danger, the game isn’t afraid to tackle more mature themes familiar to romance novel fans.
The Game Composer did all the audio for the game, including over 70 minutes of music and over 200 sound effects, both unique numbers for a casual game. The soundtrack will be available to buy with the game as a bundle or separately so look for that as well! We’re excited to release Tiger Eye: CotRB as the buzz surrounding it has been phenomenal, seeing it featured on the front page of IGN and Late Night with Jimmy Fallon. Find out more at the PassionFruit Games site.
