1.1 Trailer Music Selection (POLL)
« on: May 21, 2012, 06:25:00 PM »
Hey guys and gals,

As we steadily approach version 1.1 and continue to release new content, we are looking to create a new trailer to show off all the work. Since we've put together a good dozen of these already, we'd love your input on the music selection for the next video. Listed below are the choices we feel would work great, but if you find an AVWW track you like better please suggest it below.

To check out the tracks: go to your AVWW folder and open the RuntimeData/Music/Ingame folder. All of the in game music is in the .ogg format, so you'll need a compatible player to listen (Audacity plays the format and is free to download).

We'll be capturing the footage over the next week and putting together the trailer for an early June release. The poll will only be open until this coming Saturday, so get your votes in now. If you've come across any cool AVWW moments in your own game that you'd love to see in the trailer, let us know in the comments as well. 

Erik (Cupogoodness) and Kevin (AragonLA)

I think that the main Lava track is a lot stronger than Variations/Lava2, honestly.  Something with the chiptunes throughline is a good idea for the trailer since that's more representative.

EDIT: I'm also really partial to how well OverlordBattle.ogg works as a trailer track, personally. 

EDIT 2: And Labyrinth.ogg really has a cool build to it, I have to say. ;)

Voting for other/OverLairTheme2.ogg.  Has a good vibe for a trailer and has a mix of the title.

I think Ocean 2 has a good variety in it, and if you wanted a trailer showing more things off, it has less of a combat feel, to me. (Though Labyrinth would be pretty rad as well. ^^;   )

Clearly you know how to make kick-ass Boss Music ;)

Not saying the rest are bad, but most of the Overlord/Lieutenant music is leaps and bounds ahead of the rest of the songs.

Hoping to see more music in the game over time.


Also, 1.1? I do hope the changes are enough for people to rethink some of their comments maybe....and that my code can be redeemed on Steam by then.


EDIT: I agree with Magnus. Leave the Boss Music Tralier for 1.2 or 1.3 when there are the 10 new Overlords and Lieutenants included (which Arcen Games don't even know they were expected to make yet, which is why i'm offering them the heads up now in hope this happens :P)

I voted for the Lava Variation, but I think Lava would be even better.

Has OceanTheme.ogg been used for a trailer yet? Not the 2nd one, but the first?

Went through all the traliers on youtube and none had the Ocean Themes, but they could be cool actually I think.

Ocean1.ogg is cool and definitely promising.  I'm not sure if it's quite the right tone for what our main trailer would be, but it depends on exactly how that is constructed I guess.

Almost voted Lieutenant but something about it felt a bit....obvious.

So I went for Ocean 2 in the end.

HOW CAN YOU NOT HAVE MENTIONED "UndergroundTheme.ogg" ???? *caps is necessary, yo*

(As a sidenote, Ocean2.ogg is kinda nice too.)
