16 Mar Making of: a-MAZE-ing Music
During development we always knew that music and sound should be a very important part of “Roxie’s a-MAZE-ing Vacation Adventure.” In the beginning of the development we started looking for good sounds and music. The music was difficult because the stock music available wasn’t as good as we hoped it would be.
Luckily our good friend Rijn Buve was willing to help us. He has an immense audio studio and plays every instrument you can think of. But just as important is the fact that he is a developer too. He has a lot of knowledge about coding and how audio can be added to a game. He has designed a system, whereby we can mix and match various tracks of audio, without getting repetition in the music.
Since our interactive app has several areas where different audio would enhance the gameplay (a ski area, a theme park, cities and villages, and river rafting), it would be great fun to have music that fit. All the music is made on the same base and speed, but with various tunes and instruments, so it never gets boring.
Contact Rijn Buve if you need very good music for games or movies.
Here you can listen to some samples of the music we are going to use:
