Well, when I needed a surgery and after that the music contest came, this event was put on hold. I really wanted to continue as soon as I have the time again.
But to be honest, I lost faith in this community. Not everyone has changed, some still live the spirit of the old days, and that's wonderful. However, seeing that strange arrogance (e.g. a competition has to be held by a company to take it serious, a competition without money-related prices get ignored, etc.) frustrated me to a point, where I decided to stop the event.
Yes, I'm sad. I worked for weeks, several hours a day to provide you with fine music and sound assets for this competition. The plan was, that the community would be asked by Pirin himself to help him. He had all those sound artefacts, that were stored in the strange crystals. But a scientist can only analyse those sounds. What was really needed were game designers. Those people who have the imagination to fill the sound artifacts with life, thus showing the world what might have happened a long time ago on a far, far planet.
I really thought it would get attention and that such a challenge would be taken by any game designer. But in fact, let's face it, I would have been lucky if two or three people would have participated.
The sounds and music are there, so I offer them here as a 30 MB rar package. Use the content as you like. It features 8 music loops (that can be combined or sequenced) and over 50 sound effects, all in the context of something that happened on a far away planet. You can read the files as follows:
aaa can have the following letters: mus for music, sfx for sound effect
bb is a running number (01, 02, etc.)
c is a letter starting from a (a, b, c, d, etc.) If c is present, it means a variation of the same number without c. Example: sfx_03a.wav is the first variation of sfx_03.wav
dd will read 'lp' and is only present, if the sound file is meant to be played looped. But that's up to you.
Have fun with the files, but leave a thank you. I'm serious. I want to know who's downloading them, find them useful, helpful, will use them, etc. It will show me how welcome such a present is in the community.
Thanks for reading!
