Endless Legend Tempest Logo

The Tempest expansion brings a host of new original content to Endless Legend, the game developed by Amplitude Studios and published by Sega. FlybyNo composed four new tracks for the new content and, like his previous works, the music in Tempest is a subtle blend of soothing passages, dreamlike sequences and exciting naval battles that will keep gamers enthralled.

The tracks were recorded at Studios Ferber in Paris. FlybyNo used the Scoring Orchestra to bring the music to life. A large ensemble of musicians and singers performed FlybyNo‘s compositions and brilliantly conveyed the character of the Morgawr, the new major faction in Tempest.

The music is available on Bandcamp, YouTube and all the other digital download platforms.

In addition to the new music and the new class of the Morgawr, Tempest contains an eagerly-awaited feature: the ability to engage in naval warfare. New control zones will also be available on the oceans with a variable climate system. Players will also find a new minor faction on the battlefield: it goes without saying that all this comes with lots of new quests and special items.

The expansion release is today, Friday October 14 on Steam and the original soundtrack is available on Bandcamp, YouTube and all the other digital download platforms.

Mother Russia Bleeds rises on Steam!

September 9, 2016 in Audio, Slideshow, Sound Design by Rémi Laouti

logo_MRB1Mother Russia Bleeds is a beat ’em up game fresh from indie developers Cartel Studio and published by Devolver Digital. The game combines the traditional features of Streets of Rage with the ultra violence of Hotline Miami.

The game is set in an alternative USSR, where the player, alone or alongside 3 friends in co-op multiplayer, battles his enemies through the side-scrolling levels with the vast number of tools available in the game.

G4F participated in the creation of Mother Russia Bleeds by taking care of the sound effects production of the game!  These ranged from punch and chainsaw to the accordion throw in your opponent’s face, nothing was left to chance.

The original soundtrack was composed by Fixions, a synthwave artist that you can follow on Facebook. In his tracks, you can find the frenzy and brutality of the game with a powerful electro beat and the retro graphic universe using the numerous chiptune sounds. Or: a lesson in how to revamp an old, forgotten video game genre accompanied by a modern and explosive sound. The OST is available on Bandcamp and YouTube.
