The fun drive is over, but George Oldziey is still working hard and staying engaged with fans. He's put together another contest to see who can place where another new track originates. If you think you know what game and scene it first appeared in, email the address below! Wingnuts who missed out the crowdfunding campaign have a chance to win an album this way, and if you already have one coming, then you can get a copy of George's existing jazz album!
I just finished an orchestration of a cut scene. I thought perhaps it might be fun to have a contest to see if anyone out there can identify which game it’s from and the precise scene/scenario. The first FIVE people to guess correctly will receive either an autographed GATO 6 CD (my Latin jazz band) OR the Volume 2 CD (autographed, but they’ll have to wait for that one). The GATO 6 CD I can send out right away.
Here is the link. The video was generated by my notation software. Let me know what you think. They can send their guesses to my email@example.com address.
Edit: And we have our winners!

Universe Map Origins Revealed in "Wing 5" Progression Map
Here's a peek at an interesting prototype of the Wing Commander Universe Map included with Wing Commander Prophecy. We first caught a glimpse of this during our 2012 trip to the University of Texas archive. While the final map detailed many sectors where most of the main events happened in the series, this appears to be a little snippet that just traces through the events of WCP. (2018-07-18)
