Early Access to Blackguards on Steam

To repeat the quote on Steam:
“Blackguards is now available on Early Access. The team is incredibly proud, since now we can present the fruit of two and a half years of intensive hard work. We’ve created a game we really like ourselves and want to play: a turn-based strategy game with many RPG elements and an intense, gritty story.”

One of our biggest projects so far,  developed by Daedalic with our music and sounds, check it out!!

Happy Hills 2: Bombs Away! is out for iOS devices

Finally out! Happy Hills 2: Bombs Away! (Chimera Entertainment/dreamfab/Thumbstar Games), sequel to the very entertaining physics action puzzler Happy Hills, has hit the iOS app store. With new music, sounds and voices by the Knights of Soundtrack, featuring my friend Marco Rosenberg as the revamped hills.

I really like those games, not only from our audio angle (Happy Hills 1 for example is a project whose audio package I am still very.. ehm… happy with, one of my favourite achievements), but I also like this mix of action puzzling (things explode and are flying everywhere, you sometimes need to be quick) and the clever physics part (working with freezing, melting, friction, chain reactions in the right order to solve a level). It deserves to be a huge hit. 🙂

Try it out, 160 levels are waiting for you. 🙂

Released: Memoria (PC/Mac)

Memoria (Daedalic/Deep Silver) is now available for PC and Mac!

Memoria is the sequel to the Dark Eye point-and-click adventure Chains of Satinav. As mentioned earlier, we had the honour to ride again with our friends from Hamburg (for the sixth time! ❤ ), and provided music and sound effects for this critically acclaimed title with ratings like 10/10, 94%, 90%, 90% plus some friendly words about the soundtrack on top:

“1st class soundtrack… outstanding soundtrack… good sound effects”
Gamestar
“A soundtrack to fall in love with … wonderful fantasy tracks accompany the game atmospherically from the first minute to the last.”
Gameswelt

“the music score is absolutely fantastic, from the soft-playing harp melodies in the menu screen to the gripping orchestrations during the final chapters. They’re so good, in fact, that you’ll wish the game included unlockable music tracks in the Bonus menu. The ambient sounds of your surroundings are equally pleasing, and whether the locations are teaming with life or buried beneath the surface of the land, you’ll never doubt your ears. […] beautiful array of ambient sound effects and mesmerizing orchestrations.”
Cheat Code Central

Here is the trailer again:

STINGOUT Beta is launched!

sting1So far, STINGOUT seems to be destined to become a rare gem of a game for iOS. Quite some time ago, we provided a luxurious amount (for an iOS game) of audio for this game, a fact which is underlined by a forthcoming soundtrack CD! Developer screendepartment was very careful to make sure every part of audio was perfect for the game, really whipped us to a stellar performance. A lot of time and care went into polishing all the rest to a very bright lustre, too, and NOW you can be part of the final polishing, as the beta has launched.

If you are interested, check out this video, or head over to their facebook page or their beta page to read all about joining the beta.

(still beta, e.g. not the final audio mix of the game)
