Anticipation - James WoodcockMy album Anticipation has been available for a couple of years now and I decided to release full length previews of all of my tracks on YouTube and here is the final track from the CD.

‘A New Dawn’ is the tenth track from my album, a composition in an earlier form that originally featured in the ‘Steve Jackson’s Sorcery – The Shamutanti Hills‘ app for iPhone and iPod Touch as the credits music.

This is my favourite track from the CD, so I hope you enjoy it too!

Inherit the Earth: Sand and Shadows Kickstarter – Sequel Funding Take 2!

Inherit the Earth: Sand and Shadows

Back in January 2013 I reported that Wyrmkeep Entertainment were raising money via Kickstarter to release a sequel to a popular point and click adventure. Inherit the Earth 2 unfortunately didn’t meet the required target, however thankfully that hasn’t deterred them as they are back for a second try with more details and even a playable demo:

The primary hero of Inherit the Earth is Rif, a young Fox, who is a quick-witted, puzzle solver. Such skills come in handy as Rif tends to be thrust into dangerous missions involving righting wrongs and saving his friends.

The project being funded by this Kickstarter is Inherit the Earth: Sand and Shadows, a video game sequel to the original Inherit the Earth: Quest for the Orb. The game will be available for Windows, Mac, and other platforms.

Western Lines of Scotland Review – Train Sim World Magazine

Train Sim World Magazine
My review covering the Western Lines of Scotland route for the Train Simulator series has appeared in the very first edition of a new digital magazine – Train Sim World.

UK Routes for rail simulation titles focus on a variety of location highlights – be it industrial areas filled with warehouses and bustling with work activities, towns & cities full of traffic and recognisable landmarks or the lush surroundings of vast countryside. The ‘Western Lines of Scotland’ includes more of a gentle setting, as you travel through the pleasant green landscapes with only the tweeting of bird song for company and the infrequent train passing by in the other direction.
