  4. Free Music / SFX Resource - Over 2500 Tracks

    Hi Everyone, It's been a very busy couple of weeks, but I did manage to create a new music track for my Sci-Fi 12 page: "CYBERTROPOLIS" https://soundimage.org/sci-fi-12/ It's 100% free to use with attribution, just like my thousands of other tracks. If you haven't checked them out yet, my Ogg music packs enable you to download all of my tracks at once from various genres...a huge time-saver. You'll find them here: https://soundimage.org/ogg-music-packs-2/ Enjoy and keep creating! :-)
  5. I agree it would be nice if HBS could do a Battletech-like game again if they can’t get the rights to do Battletech. For something Sci-fi where you are managing a merc company, I’ve thought someone could do something with Hammers Slammers, but there wouldn’t be mechs in that.
  6. Designer Notes 80: Jake Solomon - Part 1

  14. Chromosome Evil - RTS mixed with Horror

    Good news. Because the results were so good we started work on a sequel. And now we are one month away from the release of Chromosome Evil 2. https://store.steampowered.com/app/2529770/Chromosome_Evil_2/ And here are some juicy gifs https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/1088441964929757275/1151128290120187965/yes_baby.gif https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/338626636251660308/1150853401018642543/wish.gif
  15. The thing that strikes me about Mimimi games is that they might just be like Relic and Company of Heroes - they've reached audience saturation for that particular type of game, and that audience simply isn't large/recurring enough to support the number of staff the studio continuously employs / costs of their particular development methodology, especially since the level design process sounds incredibly labour intensive to test. I've bought COH2 / most of its expansions and Shadow Tactics and Desperados 3, but honestly haven't played any of them. Although I have fond memories of playing the original Desperados again, I'm no longer a teenager (cash-poor, but time-rich) willing to kludge around endless restores to try and execute a perfect plan (and truth be told, I never finished Desperados 1 either, losing interest in the cavalry fort mission).
  16. One of the things that really saddens me about the current state of the internet. Discord always strikes me as more like a chat room, unless I'm using it wrong and there's a way to get asynchronous topical discussions on there. Reddit is a forum, but we know how fickle reliance on a single platform can be, especially if it starts having trouble paying the bills or those in charge start having weird ideas about platform direction...
  17. Free Music / SFX Resource - Over 2500 Tracks

    Greetings Fellow Creatives! In less than a month, it will be 10 years that I've been sharing my music with the community. Wow, time goes by fast...it's hard to believe! Anyhow, this week, we have a couple of new tracks I created with my new keyboard synth. They are: On my Fantasy 12 page: "CONTEMPLATION IN THE CASTLE" https://soundimage.org/fantasy-12/ On my Sci-Fi 12 page: "THE LANDING" https://soundimage.org/sci-fi-12/ As always, they are 100% free to use with attribution, like my thousands of other tracks. If you can, please consider making a small donation on my site. The keyboard synths I use are very expensive (I make monthly payments on them) and donations really help a lot. You can help out here: https://soundimage.org/donate/ My Ogg Music Packs are another great way to help: https://soundimage.org/ogg-music-packs-2/ Thanks in advance and keep creating! :-)
  18. You make it sound like this is about greed, but it's more about forums dying as a platform in general. Perhaps it's a self-fulfiling prophecy but you can see there aren't many people here. I'm pretty sure you can ask Len on social media they mention at the end of the episode. https://twitter.com/TilFolkvang
  19. Free Music / SFX Resource - Over 2500 Tracks

    Happy New Year Everyone! :-D To kick off the new year, I've uploaded a couple of brand new tracks on my Chiptunes 5 page: "SPIFF SPACELY" "PIXEL CHA-CHA" https://soundimage.org/chiptunes-5/ OTHER NEWS: I'm considering replacing all of my MP3 tracks with WAV tracks since the quality is higher. I know the file size of WAV files is very large, (especially for game developers,) but you could convert them to whatever format you like, like Ogg, Flac, etc. Anyhow, I'm trying it on my Fantasy 1 page. If anyone is interested, feel free to give them a try and let me know what you think. I'm also working with a new keyboard synthesizer which is a beast but should open up a whole new world of sound creation. Stay tuned, stay safe...and, as always, keep being creative!
  20. So there really is no way for me to interact anymore unless I stump up with Patreon and get on the Discord?
  21. Three Moves Ahead 604: Mega-Sized 2023 Recap! Len, Rowan, and Ian gather 'round the Yule Log for an extended discussion on the year that was 2023 in strategy games. There was a lot of good and a lot of bad. There were a lot of people talking about "Strategy/Simulation Game of the Year" that didn't really know what they were talking about. We share our personal picks and tease out a theme to encapsulate an eventful stretch of time. Listen on the Episode Page Listen on Soundcloud Listen in iTunes

  24. There are few places on the internet less frequently visited than this forum. I'd rate the odds of an answer to your question somewhere between zero and less than zero.
  25. Now I really want to know what the unworthy not a competitor 3 hour advertisement podcast is that was casually mentioned! If understandably Lynn Rowan and Luke don't want to say maybe somebody else can fill me in?
  26. Free Music / SFX Resource - Over 2500 Tracks

    Happy Holidays Everyone! This week's new free music tracks are: On my Chiptunes 5 page: "WINDLE PIXEL AND HIS BANJO BUDDIES" https://soundimage.org/chiptunes-5/ And on my Sports page: "TRAINING" https://soundimage.org/sports/ As always, they are 100% free to use with attribution, just like my thousands of other music tracks. Enjoy! :-)
  27. A few other IP's give a concept artist more street-credit than to say they've worked on this one. Excited to share I've contributed to Season 4 of Battlefield 2042! While I wish I could have stayed longer on the project and didn't have other commitments towards the end of the calendar, I managed to complete a massive amount of work for it. Unfortunately, I doubt any of that work will see the light of day due to the nature of the project. It was a true joy to work on it. I'm grateful for it.
