Game Soundtrack

Ok, so as many of you may know, I'm also a musician. And as a lot of you recently heard, I gave up making comedy music to pursue other projects, both musically and artistically. One of the projects I'm working on, besides Falling Down, is a new alternative rock band, and that band is going to be doing the music for Falling Down.

What is the soundtrack going to sound like? Well, these days music is just so generic in games, like it's all hip-hop bullshit that's been done to death, bad rock, or just like generic video game music. The soundtrack for Falling Down is going to appeal to the time period the game takes place in, which is the early 2000's, so the soundtrack is gonna be alternative hard rock sorta like Staind, P.O.D., Sum 41, Lit, Linkin Park, Papa Roach, Saliva, Breaking Point, Finger Eleven, etc. Basically, get the compilation album Buzz Cuts, and that's what the soundtrack will sound like.

Now you're probably thinking the whole game is gonna be vocal songs, not true, very not true. My plan is to write every song as a vocal song, but in the game they'll be instrumentals, and there will be a soundtrack that has the vocal versions. The main theme song is gonna be way past rockin, and there will be like 2 or 3 other key songs. This week I've been focusing on the music for the game rather than the gameplay, though gameplay has been on my mind, and I have a few new ideas to make the game awesomer.
