Long ago, frustrated by my inability to find an epic fantasy role-playing game to score, I made up my own and wrote a complete soundtrack for it. People noticed and listened, and this fake soundtrack - which I named "Forgotten Tides" - practically launched my career. While it's an unusual demo reel, it demonstrates my passion-bordering-on-insanity better than generic tracks could.
I've expanded on the concept here, and imagined a bunch of games in popular genres. Pick whichever interests you, and read the summary as you listen for the best experience. I study many more styles than you see here, so if you want Azerbaijani folktunes or happy hardcore, no problem!
- Futuristic FPS - Guns blazing, robots invading!
- Military FPS - You play as the Russians!
- Gangsta Action - Something to do with stealing cars and shooting people!
- Kids' Platformer - A happy run'n'jump'n'collect game for all ages!
- Space Shooter - A devilishly hard epic shoot'em'up!
- Casual Puzzler - Casual Games are all the rage - and I can make them sound great!
- Detective Drama - A film noir detective story set in the 40s
- Ancient Adventure - Egypt has never sounded this hot!
- 70s Crime Thriller - There are not enough 70s blaxploitation games! Please make some!
- Dance Game - Get in shape with leg-busting dance moves!

[Dick Danger, PI - Detective / Noir]
She blazed into the room like a fire in a town made of matchsticks. Her figure was an infinity symbol, curves knowing no bounds. "Dick," she drawled wearily, "I need your help." Sure, everyone did. I set down my hooch flask. Like a jigsaw she wound her way to the point. "My husband, he.. he left me this note yesterday....." She uncrumpled a wad of paper before my bloodshot eyes and I squinted through the haze. And that's when I saw it, one sinister, heartless phrase, a phrase that would put ice in any good man's veins: "LOL PWNED".
