Rad Skater Apocalypse (Game Soundtrack)

June 21, 2012 in Compositions, Game Soundtrack, Guney Ozsan, News

My second game music goes to Australia, for the mobile game “Rad Skater – Apocalypse”. This time, we try to save the world from the attack of the pixelated zombies and aliens while we collect colorful vintage casettes.

Edit (January 21, 2013): “Rad Skater Apocalypse” game soundtrack is published as a 4 track EP under my vintage electronic project “Analog Sheep“. It is full of analog modeled synths, solos, vintage dance feeling from Amiga days and positive mood. In addition to that there is a bonus track called “I Miss My Amiga 500“, an ode to Amiga for Amiga crazy fans.

The good-times soundtrack to the apocalypse!
You may as well enjoy your last moments in time with Amiga 500 inspired analog dance music.

Rad Skater is produced by the indie game developer Murray Lorden from Melbourne. Murray and I met through our adoration of the Amiga, and the amazing games and music from our childhood. I sent Murray a track that I made, an ode to Amiga, which helped creating a special bond between us. Growing up in the 80’s, and through this bond, we came to work together on Rad Skater. You can find the iTunes page of the game here.

I started working on the music of Rad Skater from the atmosphere of the Amiga 500 era. The tracks rythmically carry some characteristics of the chip tune style, structurally based on rock music with lots of riffs and solos, and beyond those, they are analog dance tracks.

On January 14, 2013 I will publish the Rad Skater music and my ode to Amiga 500 as a 4 track EP under the name Analog Sheep, my project for collecting my electronic works.

Game Developers Turkey – Istanbul Meeting

February 26, 2012 in Blog, Events

In the beginning, this group is formed about a month ago under the name “Game Developers @─░stanbul” as a Facebook group. Growing fast and wide, the name is changed to “Game Developers Turkey (GDT)”. Recently the first gathering is organized to meet people.

There is a nice beginning of activity and development of substructure of game development in Turkey. When I first moved to dormitory in ’98 there were software engineers all around me. I was also making music in my room. Everything was very convenient but there wasn’t any environment existing in Turkey to fire up such a perception. According to my initial observations, for now it is not possible for the sector to support itself domestically. So it should be better to head towards international market.
