Project 99

“Project 99” is a loopable, tense soundtrack piece. Moving through several movements, it consists at various points of strings, piano, bass guitar, and marimba, all propelled by a dramatic, spy-influenced beat.

It is inspired by music from the Metal Gear Solid and Far Cry series, and therefore is perfect for any moments of intrigue or tension which you want to underscore in your film, game, or television show.


Cyanide

“Cyanide” is an ethereal, loopable soundtrack piece. It features a soothing electric piano melody, with a gentle, wave-like synthesizer beneath. There is also a second version, with more dominant beats coming to the fore.

In its original form, it is similar in feel to the “Zora’s Domain” theme from the Legend of Zelda series, and so is fitting for any moments in which you wish to create a peaceful, natural feel in your video game of film.


Locked Up

“Locked Up” is a moody, modern soundtrack. Loopable to suit any length or purpose, it features a futuristic, pulsing synthesizer backed with a more organic feeling clave beat.

Listeners might describe this track as a slowed down, more thoughtful cousin to the famous “Popcorn Song” made famous by Hot Butter. It would be perfect to use in your game or film to provide a tense backdrop to any moment.


Clone Lab

“Clone Lab” is a stirring, adventurous 8-bit soundtrack. Consisting of a loopable, rousing magical 8-bit melody, it was written to be used in retro-inspired video games that wish to rouse the player into action.

Its dramatic feel has a lot in common with music from the early Fire Emblem titles, making it perfect for any video game in which you want to create an epic yet understated feel.


Machine

“Machine” is a retro-themed, 8-bit soundtrack. It consists of a bold 8-bit synthesizer theme that creates a sense of adventure and discovery, and can easily be looped to suit any length. Big and confident, its catchy melody will stick in the mind of any listener.

Similar pieces of music may be found throughout the Pokemon series. It is ideal as a theme for your video game, to stir players into an adventurous mood.


Extinct

Composed in the style of soundtracks from the infamous LucasArts games, specifically for the Jaguar Game Engine, “Extinct” is an epic science fiction piece featuring full orchestra. The lush strings and somber horns harness an adventurous and mysterious mood that will surely set the tone for your epic point-and-click adventure.

The 150 second piece is seamlessly loopable and features significant tension and release, providing the player with a dynamic range of emotions. Yet, even with continuous repetition, one’s ears will never grow weary of experiencing the acoustic rivers and valleys of this incredible soundtrack!


Spike

“Spike” is a loopable, futuristic soundtrack, built around an infectious beat and a catchy 8-bit melody to create a dance track that sounds unique.

Drawing inspiration from late 90s “Big Beats” artists such as Fatboy Slim and The Chemical Brothers, but adding an 8-bit twist, this piece is perfect as a theme for your video game or film, or as backing music for things such as a party scene.


Anterra

“Anterra” is a rousing, string-driven soundtrack piece, similar to many dramatic pieces featured in video games. It is primarily string-based, coupled with light touches of synthesizer and a driving drum beat.

This soundtrack is suited for any video game, television show, or any other project in which you wish to underscore a key moment with an epic piece of music. Similar pieces may be found in dramatic moments of video games, such as the Final Fantasy series or Destiny.
