VIDEO GAME TRAILER
I had previously worked with a lot of the dev team at Sparkypants on Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning when they were part of Big Huge Games. So when Jason (Coleman) asked me to write some music for Dropzone I was super keen to do it.
It was obvious from the start that they wanted some kind of orchestra/synth blend so I wrote the main theme for them to see if they liked the direction. Lucky for me they did and I started on the main game. If I had to say what kind of style I’ve written I’d say somewhere between Pacific Rim and Blade Runner, but that’s just what I think, you might not think that at all!!!
Needless to say, the reaction to the game has been fantastic, the audience has grown so quickly. I’ve loved writing the score and of course working with lots of my friends again has been a pleasure!
