It is hard to imagine a company lasting 25 years, especially one focusing on games, however that is exactly the length of time Revolution Software have been delighting us with their fantastic selection of titles over the last quarter of a century.
To celebrate, in March they are releasing a vast box set with all of their released games and a number of interviews and assets for good measure. This box set also features an addition which has surprised me greatly. They have also included a selection of the enhanced music tracks from Beneath A Steel Sky I created as part of my ScummVM Music Enhancement Project. ‘Flattered’ is certainly the word!
In a world of ever increasing quality in audio, photography and especially video – the need for yet more space to store all this information is a constant battle. Although storing content in online cloud storage is becoming more and more practical, the need to have it with you all the time even when you are away from an internet connection leaves you with the requirement for an external hard drive.
The Seagate 1TB Backup Plus Portable Hard Drive is one such solution. Extremely portable and supporting USB 3.0 for quick transfer speeds, the 1TB hard drive is ready for all your media storage needs.
My attempts to recreate classic point and click adventure game soundtracks on modern hardware and have them playable within the actual games through ScummVM known as the ‘ScummVM Music Enhancement Project‘ has featured in one of Gamer.no’s articles by Erik-André Vik Mamen recently.
My 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!
