Video game music

Click here to play the game! Made for the Global Game Jam 2021. Lost in VR is a virtual reality puzzle game where you must hunt for various objects in a warehouse to appease angry customers. The music is dynamic and was implemented by Mikey Parsons using the Wwise application. The music and sound design was a collaboration between Mikey Parsons and Ieva Vaiti. Broken up into four distinct sections, the music transitions depending on how much time is left on the timer, becoming increasingly tense and stressful as play progresses!

In November 2020, renowned composer Austin Wintory issued a challenge after the release of his most recent project, The Pathless.

 

Austin challenged people to take an original sample of his, in this case a 90 second recording of a Nyckelharpa (A traditional Swedish string instrument) and manipulate the recording into something new. There were no rules at all, he encouraged entrants to be bold and experimental.

Mikey created three pieces in response to this challenge. You can view two of them here, the third is

on Mikey's YouTube channel.

 

Mikey was later selected by Austin as a winner and was invited to collaborate with him on the game Aliens: Fireteam Elite.

Click here to play the game! The Open Sky was made for the Global Game Jam 2020. The theme for the jam was 'repair'. Here we see our hero repairing the night sky after breaks apart. I made six different versions of the same piece of music for this game. The first version is broken, missing most of the instruments and out of tune. As you progress through the game, the music gradually repairs itself until you hear the full and final version towards the end of the game.

Click here to play the game! Game Night was made for the `I can't write but want to tell a story' game jam in August 2020. In the game you play as a kid who is procrastinating by gaming instead of finishing their homework. I wrote several pieces of music for this game including good, neutral and evil versions of the main theme depending on the path the player takes through the game.
