I managed to smash together a condensed version of the ORBITOR theme a few weeks ago. The idea is to string a common theme throughout the game much like they do in movies.

ORBITOR's music is based on movie trailer music. The type of heart string pulling, uplifting and epic sounding music they use to get the emotions going within a very short period of time. It's almost manipulative. It's a large part of selling a film these days. Carefully cut parts of a film to a piece of music that stirs emotion regardless of what it has to do with the film.

So I thought I'd apply the same idea throughout our game. The challenge is hitting that mark over the entirety of the game without becoming too repetitive and cheesy. There is definitely some "cheese" in this type of music and it's easy to fall into cliches and unoriginality. But hey, it actually works perfectly for what I'm trying to achieve and the feeling I'm trying to convey.

So pass the cheese please and sit back and enjoy :)

wow I love it! sounds really nice and inspirational. I must admit after being crazy over Orbitor for so long Iv'e grown tired of it but, hearing this music gets me super excited again to see it happen along with the growth of Evil Aliens
