Music Design for Game Development Studios:
Strategies for meaningful adaptive music in video games


A new book about music design for game designers. They are the people who are most likely to be the first in a game studio to think about the music in their game. At some point, they bring a composer on board but at that point, many decisions about the game, that have a direct consequence on the style and behavior of music, are already set in stone.

The aim of this book is to equip the game desginers with knowledge on music design so that they can make better design choices before writing a brief for their composer. This is where the book differs from similar titles on the market who predominantly target the musicians.

There are gifted programmers and gifted musicians. And then, there is Adam Sporka. He is both, in one person. Creating adaptive game music is a highly challenging task, and I am very grateful I could collaborate with Adam on the soundtrack for Kingdom Come: Deliverance. Provided with 10 minutes and pen & paper, Adam is able to find the most suitable and effective solution for a complex technological problem. But even as a composer, he is able to deliver a catchy tune or an enchanting atmosphere, both fitting the situation perfectly. Such a combination of technological and artistic abilities is extremely rare. To me, it makes Adam one of a kind.

Adam co-wrote, arranged, and produced two songs for me, together with his colleagues from the Wasteland Wailers. He was able to provide original music and arrangement while deliver the genres based on the reference tracks, as well as to edit my voice recordings. I was very happy and pleased with his output. I wouldn't hesitate to recomend anyone to work with Adam.
