I wrote an old school 90s-shmup-style track last week.
Lots of hair metal influences with retro midi guitar sounds XD

As mentioned last week there is the link to my Rising Legends SFX Alpha Demo. It only contains sounds from the first stage, so you will have to wait
until the full release to see all of them in action!

I will be attending EGX: Rezzed at Tobacco Dock in London at the end of this week, so if any of you are going, I may see you there...

Hello again to everyone I met at EGX: Rezzed! I had an awesome time connecting with some amazing developers and checking out what the industry has to offer over the next few months.
Particular highlights for me were: Tokyo 42, Pool Panic and the upcoming Renowned Explorers DLC!


In other, more personal, news...

Bananadoh! has been released! Available on Android, iOS and in your browser.

I've been pretty busy this last week, working on a couple of new projects and getting ready for the recording studio with my folk-rock band Green Diesel!
We started putting the rhythm tracks down over the last couple of days,  and tomorrow we'll be adding some guitar solos :p

You can see a fun time-lapse video of us here:
(I'm the one with long hair and glasses playing guitar)
