@PuffballsUnited launched The Henry Stickmin Collection on Steam! This puts a bow on an incredible set of choose-your-own-path games. HUGE congratulations to Puffballs for completing this decade-long project! :D
In addition to a whole new game, Completing the Mission, the five original games were all remastered for the collection:
I'm making a post about this because I created some music for the Collection!
This post shows the music I made for the games.
Please also check out the full playlist, featuring over a dozen of other talented musicians!
A Feeling of Tread
Game in collection: Completing the Mission.
This was scored for one of the animations. The version in-game has a different BPM, but otherwise I fit the whole track around the section I scored. I'm super pleased with how it turned out! Also I'm pretty proud of the sharp style that emerged for the cover art and visualizer.

360 No Hope
Game in collection: Fleeing the Complex.
There were some fun challenges with creating this one, like creating a drop that sounds okay when heavily distorted, and living up to a rather classic scene. A lot of people question why the title is so bleak sounding haha - I simply came up with dumb wordplay relating to the scene; it's a play on the failure to perform a "360 No Scope".

Drum and Chase
Game in collection: Escaping the Prison.
This one is simply a short drum and bass loop I created for - surprisingly - a chase scene. I ended up with lots of variations as I honed in the style, so I guess I could always reuse some of the elements to make a full track of some sort. But for now, I'm okay with it just being a loop.

Game in collection: Stealing the Diamond.
This is the only track I did not make specifically for the game; I made this one back in 2016. It was used in a win/credits sequence, so hopefully people will enjoy celebrating with the sounds of a car alarm going off outside my dorm window when I was at university. Beep!

That's that! I give my endless thanks to Puffballs for offering the awesome and rare opportunity to make EDM for The Henry Stickmin Collection. It's definitely a once-in-a-lifetime thing that I couldn't turn down!
If you haven't already, check it all out on Steam, and give @PuffballsUnited some love :D
Take care, and thanks for reading this! <3
