Mine's still Good Morning Blood Island... I love the distant thunder-clap at the start and the sound of the waves later on, and the main tune is so haunting yet at the same time so nice to listen to. It makes me feel nostalgic even though I don't have anything to be nostalgic about.

Climbing the cliffs is another favourite, though. I can imaging going abseiling with this music. :)

So far the music reminds me of the Curse of Monkey Island soundtrack... ambient but there's still a strong tune in there.

Have to agree with Gabez on Good Morning Blood Island :)
Brilliant track!

Good Morning Blood Island is ment to be the welcome-track to the whole thing. The reason that i decided to have music on the page was not just to do a fan version of the exsistig Michael Land (God) productions, it was an attempt to create music for the other locations on the island. But there Will be covertracks to...next up by the way is "The Cemetery"

That said, I also like how the MI theme is played slightly in "A secret cave in the forest", and "in the forest" has a nice powerful beat to it.

I've always liked the Goodsoup interior music, actually... is there any chance you'll be doing something a little like that in the future? :)

Also, how do you make this music? Do you use a keyboard?

the goodsoup hotel has more rooms than the ones you visit in the game:)

and yes, a keyboard has been used on some of the tracks (borrowed it from school).

I like these, they have the feeling of the COMI music without blatently ripping it off, very good. Obvious without being intrusive.

yes, I have to agree, they are all really good, and I love listening to them. The Monkey Island tune in the cave track is nicely fitted in. I love your stuff.

Whoa! I love the ambient-sounding cemetery one (the start sounded like the cannibal village music), and the hip-hop mix... It was a hip hop version of blood island music that wasn't in the game? I can imagine it going with words. Actually sounds like somerthing you'd hear on the radio. G0blin, you say the tracks are music you made for parts of the island we haven't seen, i want to know what places are they?

Maybe i should post the Blood island map on the site, so I can show people the locations...

I think a blood island map done redone in 3D would be really cool, especially if it had new locations or was done from a different angle. :)

Yeah, and with dynamic camera, not set angles.

I reckon the best thing would be if you could have a character and just walk around the island, through the forests and stuff. That would be awesome.
