Sierra wanted another city builder, and Tilted Mill was ready for the challenge. Caesar IV was a masterpiece that spanned the course of Ancient Rome.
It was my best and most complex soundscape design to date, having thousands of voices and sound effects, multiple channels and real-time mixing including weather, battle environments, interactive / adaptive music, and the bustling sounds of Roman city and country life alike. I brought Jeff Seamster on board to assist with the sound design and dialogue, and he did a fantastic job! This was a really fun project to work on together, and our custom audio engine was getting really polished.
I also composed a 100+ minute soundtrack consisting of 21 full orchestral pieces. Universal Music liked it so much, they picked it up as part of their production library, which was a great honor for me. You can buy the soundtrack on iTunes (I make no money from it, Universal Music owns the master rights). A few excerpts from the soundtrack are below, as well as a soundscape demo. Delectus!
