Mr. Mine is an idle, mining game created by Austin Oblouk of Playsaurus. In the game, the player controls a mining operation that includes a drilling machine, mine workers, an oil rig and other assets that contribute to one drilling further toward the Earth’s core. Along the way, one may collect raw materials to enhance equipment, hire mining managers, collect treasures, encounter enemies, and more.

Playsaurus hired me to compose a unique soundtrack for their extensive gameplay. The music needed to be ambient enough to sit in the background, but also continually loop without becoming an ear sore to the listener. After nearly a dozen iterations, I delivered a 5+ minute, pleasing, harmonious and ambient soundtrack. Hopefully it’s one for the ages.

Special thanks to Austin at Playsaurus for providing me the opportunity to work on this game. It was a blast and I cannot wait to work on the next one!
