This is an original soundtrack for an adventure game I did called "A Life Worth Losing". It's an acutely self-aware fan-fiction thing starring the faces of my favorite on-line review celebrities, such as:

* The Spoony One (Noah Antwiler)
* The Angry Video Game Nerd (James Rolfe)
* The Nostalgia Critic (Doug Walker)
* LordKat (Jason Pullara)
* JewWario (Justin Carmichael) - RIP, man :(

... plus and a few other familiar faces (such as a very special surprise at the end).

The tracks are sequenced in the order they appear in the game.

Fair warning, this is not a rock album. It's meant to meander along in the background while you traipse around the game world, solving puzzles and being insulted by the characters.

To be perfectly honest, I think game soundtracks today blow. They try too hard to sound like movie scores, and in their efforts to be as non-intrusive as possible, they end up sounding like generic, cheap, anonymous droning. Which is odd, considering they have full orchestras at their disposal.

My inspiration comes from the classic adventure game scores of the 90's, where the music didn't get in the way, but it wasn't taboo to have a bit of melody to hum along to. It's probably no surprise that my greatest inspiration comes from the works of Mark Seibert and Ken Allen, who did one of the best adventure game scores in the history of gaming, "Space Quest IV".

I hope I didn't just dig myself a massive hole by making that comparison. Of course, this stuff is nothing compared to what these guys were doing with General MIDI back in the ol' days. But I hope you enjoy it nonetheless. :)
