[CLOSED] Soundtrack for My First Castellan

#1 Post by [Elysium] Véronique » Sat Sep 01, 2018 11:52 am

Hello!

So, progress is coming along in our background art and character art, but there's still something missing from this visual novel: music! We need someone to help us create a soundtrack for our first visual novel, My First Castellan. My First Castellan is set in a fictional Europe and has a few magical elements and we need a sound track to help us set the right tone for our visual novel.

In My First Castellan, you play Harlequin Beaumont, a noble who was chosen to be appointed as the Castellan of Vernon and First Castellan of the Kingdom of Cordonia. However, your first day does not go so well as you're forcibly changed into a woman by a spy pretending to be a diplomat. Your job is to navigate a world full of political intrigue, courtly politics, purse dogs, harsh winters, separatist rebellions, and funny-looking hats in order to get to the bottom of the conspiracy where your sex was changed in your own home.

For this game, we do need a signature song (think something akin to what "This is no Ero" is to Hate Plus, especially with one version with vocals and another that is completely instrumental), a couple of castle ambiance songs, a few slice of life songs and something à propos for a Christmas market.

As for compensation, we do plan to pay you up front for any work done, though the rate of payment is dependent on the arrangement we come up with as it regards to distribution of the musical assets along with whether it can be offered as a Kickstarter reward.

Genre: Suspense, mystery, slice of life, TG
Anticipated launch date: Summer 2019

We've made a decision on the musician and the position is now closed. Thanks to everyone who applied to help us craft our soundtrack!

We made a decision on the musician we are going with (we'll be going with LeetMusic) and we want to thank everyone who applied. However, this isn't the end and Elysium plans to publish more visual novels in the future, with our next VN being announced to the public in the spring.

I am still owed money by Elysium / Veronique on this project, and it's been more than 1 month since they have corresponded with me even though I finished the work back in February. Going forward I would caution anyone considering whether to work for this developer based on my experience and non-payment. If Elysium / Veronique is able to resolve this issue then I will delete this post but at this point I feel that it's appropriate for me to be outspoken.
