[MUSIC] Retro-style game makers, here's a free musical gift for you!!

Post by kerchermusic »

Hi! Are you making a game that could have been released on consoles like the SNES, the N64, the PS1, the Dreamcast, the Game Boy Advance, or the Gamecube?


If you are, please reach out! Not only do I have years of experience working in the Hollywood film music industry, I also specialize in writing music inspired by that mid 90s - early 00s era of gaming, using the same synths and samplers found in the soundtracks to your favorite games.

Check out some of my work here: https://soundcloud.com/kent-kercher/sets/micro-loops



Thanks!

Kent

Hi all!

Here's my latest demo, inspired by the music to Rayman 2:

Do you favor the late 2D and early 3D eras of gaming?

Are you making a collectathon, a shmup, a jrpg, a kart racer, a puzzle-adventure, a tactical rpg, a narrative adventure, or a platformer inspired by the tropes of that time?

I just had a meeting with a head producer of a well-known game studio a little over a week ago. He told me that - though he listens to demo reels for a living - my game music reel was the most unique, best-produced, and most authentic he’d ever heard in this style. As far as he was concerned, I am now the go-to guy for when he will need this kind of music!

What do you think? Could I be your go-to guy, too?

I've wrapped up my current projects and am looking for more games to write for. Let's collaborate!

New FREE (CC-BY) album of Early 3D/Post-Chiptunes/1990s-2000s VGM loops!

Find it on Bandcamp here: https://kentkercher.bandcamp.com/album/low-poly-loops-volume-one-rowdy-romplers
---
Low-Poly Loops · Volume One: Rowdy Romplers is the first album in a planned series of albums featuring FREE video game music loops. These LOOPS are all made using the same hardware synthesizers used to create the soundtracks to games made for early 3D gaming systems like the PlayStation (1994), the Saturn (1995), the Nintendo 64 (1996), the Dreamcast (1998), the PlayStation 2 (2000), the GameCube (2001), and even the Wii (2006).

Whether your game is a COLLECTATHON, a SHMUP, a JRPG, a KART RACER, a PUZZLE-ADVENTURE, a TACTICAL RPG, a NARRATIVE ADVENTURE, a PLATFORMER, or otherwise; if you've got a LOW POLYGON COUNT, a LIMITED DRAW DISTANCE, or a CARTOONISH ANTHROPOMORPHIC PROTAGONIST (who may or may not have a COMPLEMENTARY COMPANION); if you're hoping for HISTORICAL ACCURACY or JUST THE RIGHT VIBE, these tracks are for you!

The 28 loops on Rowdy Romplers range in length from 0:07 to 0:19 and are released under the Creative Commons CC-BY license, which means anyone is free to exploit them in any way for any reason as long as Kent Kercher, the composer, is given commensurate attribution in the credits section of the work. Furthermore, if any loop or loops in this collection are used, or if you wish to have a custom music score based on or similar to these loops, please notify the composer via the contact form on his website kentkercher.com.

It's not the type of music I am looking for, but the tracks are very good.

Makes me think of games like Donkey Kong Country.

Congrats.

Thank you so much! I definitely used some of the same Wavestation patches as David Wise - they're just so classic.

What kind of music are you looking for?

My DAW is Logic Pro X, but the sounds are hardware: Roland JV-1080, Roland SC-88 Pro, E-mu Proteus/1 Plus Orchestral, Korg Wavestation SR.

Hello Kercher,

I am looking for music like Demon Souls.

The game I'm making (as a hobby) is an action RPG, like a Dark Souls lite, making it just for fun.

Sometimes to maintain the spirit I listen to the character creation music of DeS:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s3nckWeT-m0

It is such a haunting piece and takes me back to my first game in the Souls series.
