MERCURY

The Road to Mercury

Countdown to Mercury: 9 Days to Go

Posted by mercurygame on January 2, 2011 at 10:20 PM

It's been a while since I've posted an update on here. And while I was neglecting the site, several things have happened with Mercury. For any of you who may only be following on here, know that you are missing out on quite a bit. It takes more time to write a blog post on this site than it does to post a really quick comment on YoYo Games. As such, it would be best to keep track of the games progress by following me on YoYo Games.


Firstly, I have made a trailer for the game, which can be found below:

You need Adobe Flash Player to view this content.


In it, I announced the potential release date of Jan. 11, 2011.


I am going to be trying my absolute hardest to meet the release date. 


Here forth, every day I will be posting a blog entry about the game, revealing my thoughts on the development process, sharing screenshots, ect.


But, most importantly, today I am releasing the Mercury Soundtrack. It's pretty epic, and I think it's a great listen. The artists over at the Newgrounds Audio Portal continually amaze me. You might notice that the final track of the Soundtrack is also used for the game's trailer!


Here it is:

The soundtrack is awesome, there is a definite cinematic quality to it.
First it was the quake retexturing project, now the newgrounds audio portal. It is clear the GCP Games is a true innovator and game changer.

Thanks! It really means a lot to me that someone took the time to listen to the soundtrack that I so meticulously put together. In my carelessness in developing the game, I lost the original audio file for the Mercury Theme, meaning I don't know who created it, and had to use a 32 kbs WMA Pro copy of the song for the soundtrack (then again, it was clearly done on a midi keyboard, so it doesn't sound all that different from the original). I also don't know the name of it, so finding it on Newgrounds is nearly impossible and I've practically given up searching.
