Star Ruler's Soundtrack being streamed for free!
« on: May 23, 2010, 11:59:59 AM »
For those interested, Artem Bank is putting up the Star Ruler soundtrack over at Bandcamp and will be streaming it all the way to the game's release and adding tracks as they make it into the game.  They're not all quite up yet (it's a work in progress) but they ought to be very soon. Feel free to drop by and give a listen!

When the game launches, the soundtrack will be up for download for whatever price you'd like to pay in high-quality and in all typical file formats; including lossless formats.

Click on the picture to be redirected to the Bandcamp site.

I thought it would be generic shitty soundtrack crap. It's actually pretty good. Reminds me of some of the good bits from Episode 1.

Why thank you. Gladd yall all like it. I do plan on doing another song with bass in it, but currently I'm working on one that starts with a rhodes piano riff. I'll see how that goes. If bass fits in it, it'll go in. Otherwise I'll just have to see what fits where.

Glad you guys like my bass playing too. I've only picked it up the last few months.

You are the musician Shojin?

Very good music it sounds real professional and captures the feel of a modern 4x game far better than any sound track I've heard in a game so far.

Keep it up and enjoy the creative proces!  :D


My favorite is Voyage (normal) with all teh transitions. Dit you name it before or after? Very fitting name :)

Second comes City in the Stars followed by Anomoly (it has a hint of danger really nice that (Anomoly I mean (Damn this sentence is starting to look like math or a programming language)))

Deus Ex kind of reminds me of some of the themes in Final Fantasy 7

I always have the names before the tracks are finished. Except for "Proud"... but that's because the WIP title was something ridiculously funny, and music is SRS BIZNIS.

Well congratulations. The music I had stuck in my head this morning was the Star Ruler menu music.

Great music. For a small budget game it does stand out  :). At least there will be variety while playing, what many games of the genre lack.

If anyone's interested, new song on the soundtrack website. Called Exodus... I think it sounds rather cool.

Only one more song to do before the end of this soundtrack, and I'm also doing a little bonus song, an acoustic-rock version of City in the Stars.

http://artembank.bandcamp.com/album/star-ruler

Soundtrack will be available for download (or donation) about a week before the release date.

I don't suppose you have a UK based account?
My card charges me a few bob if it is a foreign transaction, and would much rather you get the money than my bank and paypal.

I believe our account is US based if you're talking about Paypal.

GG ought to be the best outlet for you elsewise.

I've already preorderd the game though GamersGate, but was after the sound track.
If you release it though GamersGate I can get it though there, but I think they would then take a larger % that if I used the donate thing and pay the bank charge. =(.
I'll most likely just donate for the sound track anyway.

Unfortunately, I don't have a UK based account. Sorry about international fees, but I don't think there's a way for me to get rid of them.

Ok, I'll see what I can do, it's just I'd rather have donate those fees towards you that have to pay the banks for the privilege of donating.

I'll send a few bob your way in a bit.
