Music for Nintendo DS game "Worms Open Warfare"

Team17 Software and THQ have released the game "Worms Open Warfare" on the Nintendo DS. I composed the music for this NDS game and delivered it with Nintendo DS music replayer code.

The music was first composed as real studio recordings with external synthesizers, guitars, and studio gear. These original versions were used on the Sony PSP version of the game. I then painstakingly converted the music to Fasttracker XM Mod format. The music was then converted to a special Nintendo DS music format by my programmer associates. Together, were were able to deliver the music, music player code and get everything playing in-game.

Make sure you give this fun game a try, if you have a Nintendo DS. :-)

Do they always give you a copy of the game when it is released?

One more worms game... Bjorn, I have no idea why you still haven't released a Worms anthology album. There're enough good tracks to fill a bunch of albums ;)

Hmm, two reasons why I haven't done this:

1) It wouldn't sell enough to make it worth the effort, and

2) The music doesn't belong to me. The copyright in it belongs to somebody else (the game publishers). So I can't just go and release an album with that music.

As usual, I will ask the publishers for permission to put up 1-2 music tracks from the game, and make them available for free download from my site. :-)

Well, even if making an album might not be worth the money, you could just make a downloadable version :)
At least I'm now looking to buy the Shadowgrounds game just because of its soundtrack they're made available on the site...

Well, copyrights are always an issue :) Especially if you give the game publisher exclusive rights to the tracks...

New idea: why not putting downloadable versions (even if they're just 1-minute demo clips) of "wormsongs" on a single place? It's really interesting to hear how they change through the years (for me they became better and better ;)).
Just an idea though :)

Thanks for replying, Bjorn.
