The OST of choice this week is the fantastic Thomas Was Alone soundtrack by David Housden. The music is inspiring and very moving, and if you haven’t played the game yet, I highly recommend it.
Over the next month or so, I’ll be sharing the music I’m listening to when I’m working on Pixel Raiders.
If you have a favourite game sound track let me know!

Pixel Raiders Protoplay Demo Build 0.0.0.5 is finished!
It’s been a long week of tweaking and fixing, and adding awesome content. In this version I was able to add in the a basic power up system, a new road and some super sexy crates!
For version 0.0.0.7, I hope to have a purchasing system in, a tractor and some birds as well as new UI layout.
For those that don’t know. These builds are currently pre-alpha version being developed for the Dare Protoplay in Dundee, next month. It’s a vertical slice of Pixel Raiders that I hope will give those at the event a sense of what the game is all about.
If you have any feedback or questions, please get in touch.
(p.s. I know it says 0.0.0.6 in the screens… I did a silly :P )
This week I’ll be listening to the awesome soundtrack from one of my all time favourite games, Atom Zombie Smasher. The creators of the awesome soundtrack are Benny & The Mid-Knights and The Volcanics.
I love the optimism and sea side vibe in these songs.
