Music: C64 & Amiga Game Music Remade as Epic Film Scores
The independent video game developer Prismatic Realms has officially started its Kickstarter website for financing the very special music album 'Epic Action Vol. 1': C64 & Amiga Game Music Remade as Epic Film Scores. The following Amiga games will be used:
  • Lost Patrol
  • Dune - Ecolove
  • HeroQuest
  • Nicky Boom
  • Shadow of the Beast
  • Turrican II - The Desert Rocks
  • Lotus Turbo Challenge 2
  • Another World
A first impression you can get by listening to five samples via Soundcloud, among others 'Lost Patrol' and 'Dune'.

About the background of the project the initiators wrote:

"Epic Action is our fantasy music album project that focuses on melding two genres together that we believe are a perfect fit: Classic Video Game Music and Epic Hollywood-style Action Film Scores.

Growing up, we were blown away by some of the music that classic computer systems were able to produce. Since you are here, chances are you were too! Rob Hubbard, David Whittaker and the late Ben Daglish (among many others) were prolific composers on the C64 and Amiga scenes. So much so that their game music tracks are still listened to, remixed and remade to this very day.

At the same time, we are a big fan of Hollywood action films. John Williams, Hans Zimmer, Alan Silvestri and many others are responsible for helping turn great movies into experiences that are bigger than life by scoring riveting masterpieces that leave you on the edge of your seat.

The idea behind this album is to deftly combine those two worlds. We've brought together talented and hard-working folks to turn this concept into reality. It is our hope that you find this project as interesting and exciting as we do and we thank you for your support!" (dr)
