Composing Music

The last weeks I´m composing ingame music for ZEROCRON, in synthwave/retrowave-style. I´m quite satisfied with the results, but everytime I compose a new track it is tough to get started. Two of nine tracks done so far, excluding the existing boss and extro-music. And scrapped a load of half finished attempts I didn´t like. Also started to rewriting the music-handling routines since I initially hadn´t planned on having music in every level. And here a view of the editor. About 50% work is to tweak synthesizer-settings. Really love the Revolta2-VST-Plugin. Sadly the underlying suite, Magix, is quite powerful, but really damn frustratingly buggy.

ZEROCRON 1.12 is live

after a Boss dies any remaining shots also get destroyed enemies and bonus-capsule now much better visible on radar Steam screenshot-function implemented more shot-speedup-energy from asteroids and energy-absorber-shield shot-speedup-energy slowly recharges itself now, may still need some balancing some new Sounds some Bugfixes

Zerocron Release

Final fixes and changes done in version 1.09 and now finally released on Steam, phew. added windowed mode / gfx settings now showing a little bar if you collect energy from asteroids, speeds up your shooting-speed made some bosses a bit harder added a little gimmick in shop after level 24 Thanks to Lina, Benni and Felix for your input 🙂

Zerocron Release on Steam

Finally ZEROCRON is up on steam. Well, at least as “soon to be released” for now. Made some final tweaks, now adding some steam-achivements. Before I was stuck in the optimization loop of death for quite a long while. I hope anyone else beside me will like and play it ;)! What also took me much too long was composing a bit of music myself, just two songs, for bosslevels and the extro. But that also was an interesting experience. Thanks to my children for motivating me to finally release it! 🙂
