Applelinks Overview of Game Music Moofie Nominees
12:37 PM | Eddie Park | Comment on this story

Applelinks has recently posted a special report that details their four nominees for the Moofie award for Original Score. For those unfamiliar with the Moofies, they are a series of awards voted on by Applelinks readers that are given to various tongue-in-cheek categories involving Mac gaming, such as Best Picture, Best Actor, and Cinematography.

The four nominees for the Original Score Moofie are "Nuclear Kangaroo Music" from Cro-Mag Rally, the soundtrack for Diablo II by Matt Uelmen, Tchaikovsky's "1812 Overture" used in Risk 2, and "Toontrack" from Traitor's Gate.

In their report, Applelinks briefly remarks on the progress that game music has made. In the old days of the Apple II, music was limited to single-tone beeps and sound effects. Today, we have full-blown scores being played at CD quality and processed through multiple-channel sound chips. The nominees for this year have composed music that not only befits the games they are used in, but also sound great played by themselves through an mp3 player.

The report also covers each nominee in detail, providing various links to each composer's works, webpages, and mp3 downloads. Anyone interested in the inner workings of game music composition should definitely check out Applelinks. The Moofie awards for this year are also still open for voting, and voters can also register to win free games from MacSoft and Freeverse Software.
