George Oldziey checked in again to provide fans an update on his Wing Commander jazz album, which was recorded a couple months ago. He's recently overcome some delays and is now ready to check off some of the few remaining production-related tasks. One thing he's asking fans for help on is the cover art. Anyone who has ideas or input should hit the comment button below and let him know. The sooner this gets finalized, the sooner fans who supported his recent album campaign can get their music! Listen to a preview below.
Greetings WC music fans! Firstly, I have to apologize for not being very present here. Some life's challenges took my attention, but they have been resolved and I now have the music for the WC bar music CD ready to be manufactured.
But first! I would love suggestions for art work for the CD. If you have any ideas about what you think would be appropriate for the CD jacket let me know! I'd like to get this done in the next few weeks if possible, so please send me your thoughts!
Thank you again for your patience and support!
Wing Commander Sprite Refresh Looks Promising
The original Wing Commander has never looked better! The fantastic work that UnnamedCharacter has been doing on the WC Toolbox is paying off in a big way. Goliath has begun adapting his work to increase the resolution of ship sprites in the game and the results, which use Howard Day's beautiful models, are looking very promising! (2018-10-15)
