Hello there! I'm not sure if this has been covered before, nor if this is the proper area in which to post this, but here goes.
I was wondering what music you were planning to use in the game and was wanting to toss a suggestion or two.
Recently, I was listening to some classical pieces and found Bach's Toccata and Fugue in D Minor to be a particularly powerful piece. I've played the original Loom quite a bit and I LOVED the way they used Tchaikovsky's Swan Lake as a basis for most of their work. I wonder if Bach might be a good fit for FORGE?
Of course, you probably wouldn't use Toccata (the beginning piece) as it is EASILY recognizable and often associated with the horror or vampire genre but you could use bits and pieces for intense moments. More specifically I feel that Fugue (the latter part) fits very well.

Below you will find an example of the piece, Disney used it in Fantasia:
Toccata and Fugue in D Minor - Fantasia (1940) Small | Large


I hope you give this some consideration, and no matter your music choice I am sure this will turn out to be a marvelous production. Good work so far, and good luck!

We've considered this possibility before. By the way, take a look at this thread too. We also speak about music:

And I'd like to know what do you think about the soundtrack featured in the tech demo. Except for the first two songs in the preview (which, as you certainly know, have been taken from Loom), all the other content is original. We have 2-3 skilled musicians who helped us so far.
