Music

Post by Krux » 10 Feb 2009, 19:54

Spring has no music at all, but which music fits to the game? I don't think that Shakira should be your music.

What music do you like while playing Spring?

One of my favorite is of course the OST of Total Annihilation, but after hearing it 1000 times even that epic music sucks.

I suggest you to try one of those two tracks.

The music is from Atomtrakt.

Sounds too creepy and muffled/rusty imo.

This is why I think people shouldn't spend too long working on music for Spring. Most players like to listen to their own choice of stuff and I myself just listen to internet radio.

I think support for dynamic music playlists is all we need really(already done)... now people can post music they make for people to pick and choose from.

We don't want Spring to feel alien, we want it to feel awesome. Power ballads all the way.

strangely enough, final fantasy music fits spring quite well (though it gets annoying at about the 3rd or 4th time you hear it :P )

I think it's because, like OTA music, final fantasy music has been crafted to have multiple "climatic" sections, so that when you direct an assault, you almost feel like the music is synced to your units actions. Anyone else get that?

ditto for any band ending in "-ica" and featuring no lyrics
