DELIVERY TRUCK EMPIRE: ORIGINAL MUSIC

Delivery Truck Empire is an iOS mobile game from Playtend. I contributed custom music (as well as sfx) for the game, made for kids 4 and up. The player drives a delivery truck, picking up and dropping off packages while earning enough fuel to, as it were, keep on truckin'.

TREE FORT DEFENSE: ORIGINAL MUSIC

Above: the theme song I composed for an Android mobile game called Tree Fort Defense, developed by Interrobang LLC. The game is a physics-based castle defense scenario. The player inhabits a world built from a child's imagination; the back yard is under attack by a variety of fiendish opponents (a goblin, an anthropomorphic tree, a dragon, and many others) who want to conquer the fortress.
