Where did we get our idea for Casual Game Music Pack 3!?
We got the idea for Casual Game Mus from Banjo-Kazooie! We love the music soundtrack from Banjo-Kazooie and how it features different music arrangement for each season in the game! YouTuber “8-Bit Music Theory” did such a great job explaining it in his ‘Orchestration Techniques in Banjo Kazooie,’ do check it out if you are interested! We thought it would be fun and useful to have music arranged according to their season – Spring, Summer, Autumn, and Winter!
- Spring being the busiest of the season
- Summer being the laid-back and lazy season,
- Autumn being the kind of romantic and melancholy season
- and lastly WINTER, the most peaceful and quiet season!
[We added Sleigh bells to the winter arrangements! ‘What is winter without sleigh bells!?’ – as mentioned in ‘Orchestration Techniques in Banjo Kazooie’]
If you are creating a game that has four seasons, why not try out this new pack? It features two main music themes with their respective season arrangement which gives a sense of consistency throughout the game rather than having a different music theme for each season, especially if the music is playing back on the same map!
Some music composers like to compose music themes for the different characters in a story, then rearrange it differently according to how the character feels in each scene. Sometimes they are sad, and sometimes they are happy or even fearful. The main music theme although arranged differently, subconsciously associates you with the character! So in the same way, having the same music theme arranged into the four different seasons can subconsciously associate your players to a place, a town or a village, wherever you choose to use the music!
It also includes game stingers, jingles and sound effects that match the music inspired by Animal crossing and various farming games like Harvest Moon! In total there are 9 music tracks and 30 SFXs excluding variations!
