We’re on the run.. With 3 days left we’ve grabbed the mops and started polishing Iconoclash. Trimming the rough edges, testing on various configurations, eliminating show-stopper bugs, creating the .ico, grabbing screenshots and the like..
Oh.. and the music. I spent most of the day yesterday laying out the sound effect track. Lots of effects, lots of syncing and even more coke cans (empty ones.. used as sound effects actually…). What’s going to be different this time around, is that the sound effect track will be a separate entity and not mixed into the music mp3. As such, you will be able to just listen to the music in the final package or have the full blown experience of the demo with the sfx.
Still tweaking minor things and adding details as more ideas spring into mind, while waiting for Leviathan to solidify the guitar parts today, record them tomorrow and mix them together on Wednesday. Boy I can’t wait.. this piece is turning out to be really swell..
Oh and did I just give out that there will be guitars in this one? =P… (and a mind blowing piano solo too!)
This one begun as a generic dance project, which shifted into trance, then into vocal trance and finally ended up being something between oldschool 90′s and Eurodance. Nevertheless, much thanks to Valerie Blonde for singing this in such a short notice.aMUSiC ft Valerie Blonde - The Wind Under My Wings
This was made for the same titled demo by ASD.
It’s Saturday, Euskal is already underway and we’re eagerly waiting for the Demo compo tonight. I’m all piss and vinegar that there’s no demoscene.tv coverage, but oh well. The important thing is that the demo was finished way ahead of time, and I managed to finish the music just in time, which included a recording session with a singer and which turned out to go better than I initially thought it would.
Once the demo is out, I’m going to upload the music here. But until then… =)
My close bud Leviathan re-pointed me to an IRC quote that I’ve found to be hilarious, yet so true…
A woman has a close male friend.
This means that he is probably interested in her, which is why he hangs around so much.
She sees him strictly as a friend.
This always starts out with, you’re a great guy, but I don’t like you in that way.
This is roughly the equivalent for the guy of going to a job interview and the company saying, You have a great resume, you have all the qualifications we are looking for, but we’re not going to hire you.
We will, however, use your resume as the basis for comparison for all other applicants.
But, we’re going to hire somebody who is far less qualified and is probably an alcoholic.
And if he doesn’t work out, we’ll hire somebody else, but still not you.
In fact, we will never hire you.
But we will call you from time to time to complain about the person that we hired.
Rings a bell, anyone?
Boosting the Ouch set a bit more. This one could also fit in the Politics set, but if figured it’s gonna hurt so much, the Ouch set is its rightful place.
As I am waiting for a huge mysql process to take place, I thought I might get my hands dirty by creating a new MtI (read: Magic: the Irony) set, called the “Ouch” set. In this set I’ll be including stuff that hurt, current events and well.. cards that don’t fit into any other category. Let’s start with a traditional Amstel bottle…
I went on a streak with the Politics set and totally neglected the Orthodoxy one. Time to restore the balance a bit.
