Topic: Creating music for games.

Posts 1 to 7 of 7


I've been writing music for years! It all started on the Commodore Amiga. I've started gathering some collections now with the intent of release, however, a lot of my friends (it's always been brought up, but now more than ever) believe the music would be better suited to video games rather than actual release titles.

The style is, in essence, an extension of the Commodore 64 / Amiga years. Synth/Dark wave tracks with an electro style drum track, soaring leads and no vocals.

Do any of you fine people know how to get started on this train? I have no idea where to start, any suggestions would be helpful!

I'm not posting any links unless they are requested as that could be classed as advertising.



It’s cool that you are doing music bro! I’d love to see some of your work, but posting any link or website is prohibited. I don’t know anything about music, so I don’t have any suggestions. Have fun with your career!

I too have a similar passion for music. Game music in particular. Check out SoundCloud. Go post some of your music samples on indie gamedev/games forums. Get networked in the indie community. Your stuff needs exposure!

I’m not sure about getting your music in games unless you just send it to lots of indie developers and tell them it’s your passion etc. I do think there is a place for releasing the kinda music you’re talking about and I even remember liking an artist that had Amiga acid techno music a long time ago. I suggest releasing your music on band amp if you want it heard. I’d like to hear! Anyway that’s my two cents, good luck!



one of my friends sells his game music @ Unreal Engine music marketplace and I guess Unity has something similar. There is a LOT of music there so the competition to get heard must bee tough. But I guess that is the easiest way to get heard and make few dollars.

"That's it, man! Game over, man! Game over!"


Could be a way for me to get started too actually.
