Natural Selection 2

I've been busy at work composing the soundtrack for Unknown Worlds next offering, Natural Selection 2. If you aren't familiar with Natural Selection 2 you owe it to yourself to learn more about the game here.

On April 9th Unknown Worlds released an engine test to their pre-order customers. The main menu music was also shipped with the menu tests and it seems to be hitting a chord with the NS2 community - which is fantastic!

A full soundtrack release is planned in the near future, so stay tuned for further details as they emerge.

Neverwinter Nights 2: Mysteries of Westgate

I was again awarded the lucky opportunity to work with the great people at Ossian Studios on Neverwinter Nights 2: Mysteries of Westgate. I thoroughly enjoyed composing over 25 minutes of new music for Mysteries of Westgate - a fine a tale as we've come to expect from Ossian Studios. As soon as MoW's release comes to be, I will be updating this site with some demo tracks from the title.

Here are some excerpts form the original press release to whet your appetite:

Developed by Ossian Studios, Neverwinter Nights 2: Mysteries of Westgate is the first full featured Adventure Pack available from Atari. Set in the infamous Forgotten Realms city of Westgate, players find themselves in possession of a powerful but cursed treasure that threatens to destroy them. Linked to the underworld organization known as the Night Masks, the treasure will draw players into a city-spanning clash between warring factions. Players must choose their allegiance in order to break the curse and ultimately uncover a plot that threatens Westgate itself.

I had the pleasure of working with Ossian Studios on their Neverwinter Nights Premium Module, Darkness over Daggerford. Unfortunately, before the module was released, the Premium Module line was cancelled. However, Ossian forged on and released their module (more of an expansion really) to the Neverwinter Nights Vault. Read on about the module in Ossian's own words:

Ossian Studios has released its Neverwinter Nights™ game, Darkness over Daggerford, to the Neverwinter Vault, and the NWN community's reaction has been beyond our expectations! We knew that we wanted to make the biggest and best BioWare Premium Module ever, and aside from the fact that BioWare cancelled the premium mod program, we feel we did just that.

We are very happy that so many people are getting this much enjoyment from the game, and it makes the development of Daggerford over the last year feel totally worthwhile. To all our new fans, from all of us here at Ossian, THANK YOU!

Download Darkness over Daggerford from the Neverwinter Vault and play the game for free!

Also check out the great articles about Ossian Studios and Darkness over Daggerford on BioWare's website and on the Neverwinter Vault.

A new Premium Module offering is available from the BioWare store! Again I'm happy to have worked with the BioWare Live Team composing for this title. Head over to the official page here to learn more or view the trailer!

In other news, I'm going to be updating my demo tracks available on the site. Most of them are pretty old, and I look forward to updating with some of my newer work. Stay Tuned!

Well, its been quite a while since I've updated. I've been pretty busy, got behind. Since my last update a new Neverwinter Nights Premium Module has been released from BioWare. Pirates of the Sword Coast is a high seas adventure set in the Forgotten Realms. If your a Neverwinter Nights fan, I highly recommend you pick it up! I had a great time yet again working with the BioWare Live Team.

In other news, Atari has released a retail add on for Neverwinter Nights. You can find it online or on the shelves in stores. The expansion includes three modules I've had the pleasure composing for. Kingmaker, Witch's Wake and ShadowGuard.

Great news! The Academy of Interactive Arts and Sciences [AIAS] has awarded Kingmaker Computer RPG of the year. A big congrats goes out to the developers, I'm very proud to have done the music for that title.
