|Music & Sound FX
An Indy film without a strong, powerful and enjoyable musical score would be unthinkable, as would any Indy computer game. Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis had a strong, lovely score by Micheal Land, inspired and composed in a similar style to John Williams scores for the films.
FoY intends to have its own unique score. A full MIDI soundtrack to accompany the gameplay and cut-scenes and other special moments, the Indy theme will feature throughout as will totally original music to convey the mood and atmosphere. Once again, it will be reminisant of John Williams film score yet at the same time remenisant of FoA.
The score for the full game will usually start about halfway through development. From the start to finish of the creation of the score, you will be able to read along the way.
Mark, who has composed for freeware adventure games including Trilby's Notes, Larry Vales, Rodekill 2, Reality On The Norm and The Adventures Of Fatman by SOCKO! Entertainment hopes to write over an hour of immersive MIDI music for the game. The soundtrack will be available to download for FREE with the help of good flagship merchant services.
A few music samples are available, as Mark works on his technique of recreating the Indy mood, including his cut-scene test and the slow atmosphere test and finally, his Indiana Jones theme test.
His latest example is for the intro sequence. Mark has been playing around with
a tribal drum feel. This is in no way a final piece.
He has also worked on some other exploration tunes.
Some tunes from his original cut soundtrack will also feature.
You can find more MIDI adventure game soundtracks by Mark at the Mod's MIDI website, with free
tunes for you to use in games!
INDIANA JONES AND THE FOUNTAIN OF YOUTH
This soundtrack has not yet been released.
The DEMO does NOT feature music from the full game,
however it features its own ORIGINAL music - an early test
of "FoA" style music composed by Mark.
Atmospheric & cut-scene music:
INFO: For authenticity, I always test on a SoundBlaster 16 card!
When the game had a different storyline and was being led by
Jocke Andersson circa 2000-2001, Mark Lovegrove wrote
a soundtrack for the smaller scale project. It was never completed.
INFO: Jocke particularly liked the 'Syria - Digsite' tune.
As for sound effects in the game, we will be using ambient background sounds plus specially recorded sounds unique to the game. More music and sound effect samples will be available soon!
