Hey,

like we have discussed:
please post your favorite  musical episode / musician to appear in the game.

We can also collect more than five and start a poll afterwards if you have that many great ideas Smiley

I think the difficulty should increase with each new level. So we could start with reggae and end with heavy metal. It's guitar hero, so I think metal is a must have.

Ending with some mean speed or thrash metal will definitely make for a very nice "final boss" feeling. I know some guys who play in thrash metal bands, they'll certainly give us a piece of their music to use in game.

My suggestions:

- The Surfer Dude:

I love surf music, some friends of mine play in a Surf band, they will absolutely give us one of their tracks for the game: http://www.myspace.com/monokinialder

Also, surfer dudes from the 50s are the hippest kind to ever have walked this earth. Also, a beach is a nice setting and can take every kind of puzzle there is (Imagine: Death on a cliff, offshore, while performing a stunt with his surf guitar in his hands)


- The proud Country rebel

Mainly because I'd like to have a setting where Eric can make full use of the infamous drunk mode and a scrapyard. A scrapyard with an old man and some dogs on it is always fun, isn't it?


- The Titanic Fiddler

We already discussed that, but way to present it again: One of the violin players that sank with the Titanic has also entered the nimbus with his fiddle in his hand - lots of sonar map ship finding and diving fun for all!


- The slightly confused Gentleman of Dodecaphonism

Just because twelve-tone music is so outrageously great. Go Arnold Schönberg!

I forgot to mention that we actually need someone who can compose all this stuff Wink

Therefore Dodecaphonism (looked it up) sounds awesome, but Arnold Schönberg is already dead Cheesy Also it's a really tough job to reduce this music to 5 possible notes. Anyway I'd really love to have a classical piece in the game.

The metal theme's also great and it's a pro that Sebastian knows a band which can deliver some tunes.


My addition is:
- yankee doodle piper boy
Imagine a civil war veteran open air museum and maybe exhume a corpse (that always popular Cheesy )

About the composition stuff: Our sound department can provide anything. Really. If I team up with David, there is literally no musical style we can't come up with, and also I know so many people in pretty good bands - don't worry about that, really.

Pretty clever setting - we're only missing a drummer... and ta-daa: Eric Smiley


edit: According to this list, Gram Parsons would be the current arbiter. Anyone thought about this?
It still would fit, of course.

Ha, that's great. A spaced-out psychedelic arbiter, it will be lots of fun writing dialogue for him. And fighting him, of course. And maybe redeeming him, making Lucius the next arbiter?

Would we then use real songs from that persons or "unreleased" songs of them = selfwritten in the same style?

As far as I get it, these people are just archetypes, so yes: self written in the same style Smiley

Ok. So, who is going to be the final battle? Lucius? Some 80s Bowie style song would really work as final-boss-song...

I guess it depends on who the two decide to fight: Lucius or the Arbiter - so it would either be 80s wave rock or 70s southern psychedelic rock.
