I’ll talk about Darklands, a Classic RPG in a moment.

April is an excellent month to reflect on how the year is going and whether we have achieved all or some of the goals we set for ourselves (Read – Overcoming Procrastination). It’s also a time to assess the overall positive or negative trend of our careers. I haven’t talked much about my career, and I’d like to address that in this article (Read – Music Composition for Films and Games).

April Reflections: Classic RPG, Assessing Goals and Exploring Career

As you all know, I compose music for video games and films, specifically cinematic soundtracks. This art form is arguably the pinnacle of modern music (no offense to pop and rock producers)! (Buy – Guitar Tool Kit)

Behind the Scenes: Uncovering the Depth of My Film and Game Music Achievements

As you can see from my Internet Stream, Game, Connect: Wifi Repeater is Here! - Meet the Wifi Repeater: your solution for lag-free streaming, gaming, and video calls. Enjoy faster, stronger, and more reliable internet now. Movie Database link at, I have accomplished quite a bit in the film industry. If you search for my game credits on, you’ll see that I have also made a mark in the video game world.

However, this is only a fraction of what I have truly achieved. To be honest, I have worked on approximately 400+ projects over the past four years. Most of these projects are indie, so there’s little trace of my involvement or perhaps only a mention in a semi-obscure blog post somewhere.

Embracing the Journey: The Composer’s Hidden Value and Exciting New Project Endeavors

Unfortunately, this is part of the game: possibly being worth more but appearing much less because, in the end, I am considered a minor composer. Don’t get me wrong – I am happy to satisfy many clients, even if I have few credits to show for it. As they say, perfection doesn’t exist, except in the smile of a satisfied customer!

However, the real purpose of this post is something else.

Our team has been working with the late Arnold Hendrick on a spiritual successor to his Darklands product, a classic RPG from 1992. We are completing the concept phase and beginning work on the prototype this year.
