New game, Colony!

Hey everyone! Krin has just finished a brand new RTS game called Colony! You absolutely have to take a look at this game, it's well worth it! I've had the pleasure of scoring an all-original soundtrack for it, which I'm really happy with. I'll discuss that in one second. For now, let me tell you about the game. It takes place in the year 2273, on the first planet colonized by man. It features three governments you can play as (each government offers a different play style), and a host of buildings and units. The visuals are stunning- among the most polished I've seen in flash games to-date. Once you think you've mastered the game, you can put your skills to the test by battling against others using an online multiplayer server!

We took a different muscial approach than the Sonny games this time around. I incorperated more electronic and rock-styles in this soundtrack, to try and play homage (as the game does) to the Starcraft series. We decided to and create a more unique soundtrack- this time around, instead of a few loopable pieces, we created many smaller musical "slices", that are assembled in any order during the game. Some slices are driving and blood-pumping, others are ambient and mood building. On top of that, each government has a unique theme that will play at certain times to help give each government a unique feel. I find that the music doesn't get as old as quickly, and you can bet that we'll be looking at this method to bring a more dynamic and ever-changing soundtrack to future games. This is very much a test run for future soundtracks, so we need to hear your input on how to improve it!

As always, you can head on over to Armorgames and play it, or you can click this link right here. We need your help to make this game a success!

New game, Colony!

I'm loving the music that you placed there, it gives a great feeling. The same grandeuric feel as if you are playing Sonny, but with a different genre (that you mentioned). Still, you've done yourself quite well.

Hey, for some reason you didn't upload all the soundtrack for Sonny. I really enjoyed the soundtrack of especially the original game, but not all of the audio is here on your profile. What's the reason for that?

DavidOrr responds:

The Soundtrack for Sonny and Sonny 2 are on Newgrounds, the names of the pieces are: Duty Calls, Heroic Confrontation, Final Encounter, and Outnumbered.

Yeah...I was wondering that too...

Either way, the game's really great!

By the way....any idea when Sonny 3 is coming out? (I beat Sonny 2 for like the 15th time running now)

DavidOrr responds:

The full version of the music is on Newgrounds now. I can't share any information on Sonny 3 or future games at the moment!
