And one of them is the music. Now, while the team was generally happy with Demo 4's tracks, we did notice that not everyone (or at least a really high percentage of our users) shared our opinion. And it did hurt the enjoyment of some of our fans. So, we decided to take it upon ourselves to redo the music with a new style of sound, in the hopes it'll be received better. Up until a few months ago, we didn't forsee this getting in the way of Demo 5's release, so we wanted to keep it as a surprise, but as it turns out, our beloved team member and musician Soulred12
, got his law career started. Yes, he was training to be a lawyer for quite a few years and we're pleased to see it paying off for him.
However, working in the law field isn't a simple 9-5 job. A typical work day may exceed even 12 hours, and that means SoulRed12 would have no time left over to work with us. As such, we decided to just let him manage the website and participate in events. Naturally, we had to seek out another musician, and so I present our new musician... MaxieDaMan.
Naturally switching to a new musician presents a new musical style. This unfortunately means that Demo 5 needs to have all of it's tracks redone. However, as you all are aware the holiday season is upon us now and we have agreed for him to have off for the holidays, as it is a time to spend with your family. This being said, music and bug testing are the two major things keeping us back at this point.
We have three new tracks we want you to mull over. You can find them on MaxieDaMan's SoundCloud, below.
Names to be decided later.
We need you to listen and compare these to some of our previous tracks to see what your thoughts on some of these changes.Demo 4's ACDC themeDemo 4's Internet ThemeDemo 4's Virus Busting Theme
Now is your chance to give your input on the game's production, so be sure to take advantage of it. Sadly, this does mean we can't meet our December 21st deadline, but that's okay. That just gives us more time to polish Demo 5 as a whole. So, if you want to help us get this demo out faster, make sure you give us your feedback and thoughts via leaving a comment below this post, or on our Facebook/Twitter posts. You can even vote in this Sparklit poll
. This poll will close January 9th, 2017
to accommodate for the holiday season.
