Music wanted for a PC game project
« on: August 01, 2016, 17:15:51 »

Hello together,
I am developing a (German) PC game, and I am looking for several music modules in XM format.
The game is being developed and financed by donations.
It is a new part of the Biing! series back from 1994/1999 and will become an oldschool 2d economic simulation game.
The project is semi-commercial:
- Steam sale is planned, but just to get the money back, we spent while developing

Who would be interested to offer (Best: for free!) music modules with the required licenses for me?
A first (very first) video is available on youtube (With just choosen modules, just added as a preview)

German comments!

Also, English, and French translations are planned, too.

Please contact me here!

Cheers to all musicians!

Markus

A friendly pointer.

"Getting money back from developing" should include musician's share too. You can't expect composers to give stuff out for free when you yourself expect to be paid for your work, even if it is very little.

We make absolutely no plus with this game.
But sure, we can talk about a little fee for the componist.
The problem is, that it cannot be promised while development.
But later, when the game is done, of course it's possible to give a few % away.

Yeah, in cases where you still plan to sell the game but don't have the funding to pay anyone while developing, just promising a few percent of royalties is more than enough. It just makes it much more likely for people to actually take your project seriously and give those licenses out.

It's not about the amount of money one gets, it's about the music being recognized as being worth of something.

Good luck in the search!
