We have been amazed by the response and the quality of the re-imagined M.U.L.E. themes we’ve received! You all are amazing!
To give you time to take in each theme submission we’re going to post one per day and then ask you to vote on them at the end.
Here is today’s theme by Auralplane!
For me this intro is wrong needs to keep the slow methodic pace of the mule walking, the rest works well. Look forward to hearing other re-mixes.
I like this one, it’s instantly recognizable to anyone who’s played the game before and has a good reference to the initial “percussion-ish” start.
Philip, I don’t know what version of M.U.L.E you play/played but at least two of the four different systems’ theme songs I checked up on match this song par tempo perfectly. And if you’ve lost as many mules over the years as I have, you know those suckers are only slow on the title screen! 😀
So far (of the 1st three), this one is my fav.
I think this one works well.
What a great tune! I especially like the analogsweep-lead. It has a very nice 1980-90 feeling. A lot of work in this, and it shines through. But it could still need a bit more, especially the drum arrangement even if a lot of action and changes in sounds, it is still lots of presets and feels like the effects are not tampered with. A bit too dry in some places, a bit to fat in other. But my overall impression is that this is a really nice tune that probably would fit a iphone type game very well. Nice work!
This is the only real contender at this point.
I like this one, prefer the 6th more. This would be better if it wasn’t so full on with so many instruments.
