Thanks to everyone taking the time to read and reply to this message :) The position has been filled now.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Hello there,

We're currently developing our first indie project called Awakening, and are seeking a composer and sound designer. Up until this point, we've been using a mix of music, our own music, free music, and sounds. However, Awakening is at the point now that it needs an upgrade to music and sounds to unify and improve the feel and mood.

We're looking to create an immersive and cohesive soundtrack with sound effects that players can really feel. For now, Awakening will be a shorter experience as we are working towards completing the demo; despite being short, we're still are aiming to provide a high quality experience. We're seeking a professional who has experience creating soundtracks and sound effects for video games.

The deadline to complete would be end of May 2020, we currently have a budget of $3000 for audio.

If you're interested, please share your portfolio. Thank you for taking the time to look at this posting!

Here is a video of our project (still in progress):

Looks great! I like the retro vibe without looking like its cloning any pre-existing game. Would be interested to hear more about the plot and the scope but it looks like your animations are pretty much there! I’ve worked in half a dozen games and I specialize in electronic and rock music and. I’ve done work directly through my modified NES to get authentic vintage sounds, though it looks like you’re looking more for MegaDrive/Genesis tones, which I’ve always wanted to experiment with but haven’t had the right project for.

Selections from 2018:
And a little game jam game I did years ago that transitions between chiptune and orchestral arrangements of the same pieces, as well as the sound design:

Great looking game.

I mostly write for my band (Prog/Fusion sort of style) but I've been enjoying working on some simpler SNES-esque music. I've been looking to write music with context, i.e. where I can work off of a setting or character, make use of leitmotif. I love these kinds of aesthetics.

Here's a link to my Soundcloud.
