91 points is my high score! BEAT THAT SHIT.

If you are reading this far into the future and this post seems outdated, feel free to contact me anyway! My email is adesyndicate@gmail.com.

Hello, my name is Alex Emenheiser and I’m looking to compose original, quality music for your game! I have more than a decade of experience in music and have been composing music for video games since 2012.

PORTFOLIO

My portfolio is filled with the music for a variety of games, spanning many genres. Orchestral, 8-bit and 16-bit chiptune, rock, jazz, electronica, ambient; I will work my best to create music in any genre you need! (I can even create custom demo music if needed.)

 

Nexomon https://soundcloud.com/adesyndicate/sets/nexomon-samples A turn-based RPG about a young lad off to save the world with his team of Nexomon! The bulk of Nexomon’s music is orchestral with some synth-based tunes, too! The music director at Lime Turtle, Inc. was so pleased with my music that he promoted me to Lead Composer for the sequel! Commission.

DragonBlossom https://soundcloud.com/adesyndicate/sets/dragonblossom-original-score A colorful, fast-paced RPG platformer! The game director was very happy with the music and negotiating contracts was fast and easy. The music was inspired by that of the Sega CD and TurboGrafx CD era. Pro bono.

Spook Royale https://soundcloud.com/adesyndicate/sets/spook-royale-original-score A Halloween- and 1990s-themed, retro twin-stick shooter! Also created a number of sound effects for the game, too! Pro bono.

 

yBorg https://soundcloud.com/adesyndicate/sets/yborg-original-score A metroidvania game about a little robot boy with amnesia searching the land for meaning. Other composers on the project were often impressed with what I brought to the table, even incorporating lyrics into a song! Pro bono.

Project Skates https://soundcloud.com/adesyndicate/sets/project-skates A shmup sidescroller about bunnies with guns! For this game, the music directors would sometimes have me go through revisions until we developed what we were looking for! Pro bono.

Dungeon Misadventures Original Score https://soundcloud.com/adesyndicate/sets/dungeon-misadventures-ost The original score for an animated series called Dungeon Misadventures, a comedy cartoon about three professional heroes fixing wrongs and going on quests! Commission.

WEBSITES

Websites include SoundCloud, Bandcamp, YouTube, and Newgrounds! In fact, you can find even more music on my Newgrounds page not found anywhere else!

I am flexible with handling payments and I can work within your budget. Please contact me to further discuss money matters. (Paid work only; no pro bono or revenue sharing please. Thank you!)

You may contact me at adesyndicate@gmail.com if you are interested!

Thank you for your time and I hope to hear from you!

Some things I had problems with in Exiles: I had some trouble figuring out how to unlock doors with key cards since you have to swipe the key card and then open the door whereas in many other games you just swipe the key card and the door opens automatically. I figured it out, though, so it's not entirely necessary that it be streamlined.

After picking up the bedroom key, I absolutely could not figure out where to go.

Some things I liked about ExilesThere are genuine stretches of dread that are caused primarily by level design. There is a section where there are two floors. I avoided going down the bottom floor (because it's scary!!), so I instead did everything there was to do on the first floor until there was nothing left and I had to go down stairs. That had me flustered.

The way the visuals are shaded makes the game look like it's made of clay or velvet. That's great! It makes Exiles look fairly unique among the plethora of horror games that go for photo-realism. The blurring and lighting effects also look fantastic! The scary strings that kick in when the zombie boy appears made the whole encounter even more stressful.

P.S. there's a bug at the end of the video that you should absolutely keep in the game.

Hello! My name is Alexander Emenheiser, and I'm a musician of more than ten years: a decade as a pianist, four as an electronic musician, and two as a vocalist. I'm looking to collaborate or get hired by indie game developers. I can do a variety of styles and genres of music.

I sent you an email!

NEATO! I'm liking those rules, too! I'm totally doing this.

I'm interested in composing the soundtrack to your game! I have more than nine years experience as a pianist and I've been wanting to get into video game composing for a long time now. What is your email so that I can contact you?

You're welcome!

Reminds me of the old Sonic X trinket toy games McDonald's used to sell back in 2005 or so and Tiger Electronic's LCD games. This is a subcategory of video games that doesn't get enough neo-retro love.

A small tip, man: don't name your files ending with a number in parenthesis; people on Windows might mistake it for being the eighth time they've downloaded Jake.zip.
