EDIT: The soundtrack will be a the (fake) soundtrack to Gears of War 3. I want anything from sadness, surprise/shock, horror, motivation (like for e.g. going to war and kicking some Locust ass) and in-the-moment-action. There are also 4 special categories, which can only be done once... so if you want to pick one of these special themes for your song also, let me know. If you're doing a regular (sadness, etc. as stated above), then you don't need to tell me.

The special categories are: Carmine dies. Baird dies, the Gears hijack a Locust-controlled train and the Locust Queen is finally killed by the Gears.


I want a soundtrack that adds up 30 themes. They can be anywhere between 30 seconds and 4 minutes long (just look at soundtracks to games, you will understand).

To make this simple I want 30 people to contribute (I won't be doing one myself, however), and the first 30 people that sign up get to do this. Now I am going out in a minute for a short while, so don't worry if you don't get a slot. If you know you want to do this and have a slot (just check through the posts), you don't have to worry.

I just ask that everybody has to make sure they want to do this before they let me know.

I also ask for everybody that is contributing to make sure that they are 100% happy with their work before uploading it. I will give you a few days, weeks whatever... just so long as it's not too long away.

Also, do you want to work on a long theme or a short one? state that also.

By the way, you are eliminating the possibility of any track between 1 and 2 minutes long, which seems a bit wrong.

Maybe short tracks should be 0:20 - 1:30
Medium 1:30 - 3:00
Long - anything longer than 3 minutes, which is a reasonably long track for a video game soundtrack

I'll do a short, intro screen main theme thingy. About 1.30 or so. Kthx

hey, I still have my boss battle song from that older thread about making a video game soundtrack that never got made, can I submit it? It's 1:41 long.

here it is: http://dl.dropbox.com/u/3782733/boss%20battle.mp3

EDIT: if you're going for a more orchestral/epic route (I have no idea, I've never played Gears of War), here's another clip that might work:

Sounds more like a Doom soundtrack song, but sure thing . I'll put you down on the list as "completed"

In a massive rush of inspiration... I am almost done with my theme. It sounds very much like the ending theme to something.

I'm down. It'll be medium length, unless it turns out well and ends up longer.

I'd definitely be up for creating a short track.
Maybe medium though as there's every chance it could go over 1:30.

The piano is a program called TruePianos. Strings, though I used them sparsely on that track, are Session Strings, and the ambient synth sounds come from a program called MikroPrism. It's a free download from Native Instruments website.

Glad you liked it

I will sign up if we can make a UG game. It can be a flash game for all I care, but if we're making a soundtrack, I want us to make a game for it.

Maybe Game Maker?
I mean, that's powerful enough, but also simple enough for a group project.

Do you know what's funny? when I was making this thread this afternoon, I was going to actually make this thread as the "let's make a game! (kinda)" thread... but it was too difficult to list things. But, we can see to that later on... let's get the soundtrack sorted first

Guys, the list will all be updated accordingly in about 5 minutes. Bear with me

Quote by boreamor
Can we get a limit to what style we can do? Can we do a metal track with orchestral themes, etc?


How do you mean?

Quote by ilovepepsi
if this is suitable, then stick this in:

For some reason, the page just not load... can you upload it to your profile? also, I won't add you to the list yet, because I don't know any details about this song you did

Quote by Tanglewoodguit
In for a gentle acoustic piece. Maybe for one of the deaths?

Or a sombre string quartet. Argh I can't decide.


You in then?

Sorry for lack of melody or top VSTs.

Like, GoW had mostly orchestral music, but I imagine if we did a metal Final Fantasy-esque sorta thing, it would work.


I get you now. Well, it can include the odd metal, but I would like the majority of it to be orchestral and sad acousticy ones for like background themes and that.

Basically, I want to create a Gears of War 3 soundtrack, imagining it will actually be used by Epic Games when the game is released .

Fair enough. What about getting someone with RPG Maker to just whip up a quick RPG though? If they focus on that instead of the soundtrack, they should have it done by the time everyone finished their tracks.

Also I call the battle music.
