I'm still playing through DD, but the tracks I heard so far really smashed me.
Out of curiosity I visited Kirill's site and listened to some tracks.
It reminds me a bit of Vangelis, if I may draw a comparison.
I thought of putting a note into the guest book, but my, it would feel like a pebble talking to the mountain. <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" />
Yes I think Larian should contract him again.
BTW my guess is that composing music for a 3D game will be a different task.
In contrast to a 2D level rush-in-and-out way, there will be considerable more time being spent on exploring a 3D plot.
The background music will have to reflect that, so I doubt short, looping tracks will do the right job.

Meh, cats.
I felt the hunting purrs irritating so I silenced that little nagger, and now all the cats are after me. <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/silly.gif" alt="" /> <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/rolleyes.gif" alt="" />

Nature is essential for a 3D rpg that's settled in outdoor environment.
The player will spend a lot of time with exploring the plot, so the perception of the environment will play a big part on the overall acceptance of the game.
Dungeon Siege and Gothic did a fairly good job on this.
Morrowind is also quite good, though feels somewhat tepid.
Very tricky to do it right.

I'd definitely appreciate another House of Madness episode.
It's just screwed, I like such things. <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/biggrin.gif" alt="" />
