I've been working on creating a soundtrack to be played while playing Dead of Winter. I finished it, and tried to upload it to the files section, but it was too large. I've put it on my Dropbox account.

Ver. 1.0

This is a THREE PART (totaling roughly 2 hour 35 minutes) MP3 audio file to play while playing Dead of Winter.

Download and use ALL THREE parts, in order, when playing.

Part 1 starts with an Intro "story" (about 4 minutes) followed by the sound of a continuous winter wind, with different related sound clips mixed into it every 5-10 minutes. Parts 2 and 3 are more wind and sound effects. If the game runs longer than 2.5 hours, repeat part 2 and/or 3.

Dropbox Link

There is also a "Full" version, which is all three parts edited together into one file.

Thank you so much for sharing this!

Oh, and since they've announced that the next crossroads game will be Lost in Space, you'll get right on that, yes? whistle

Hmmm... Considering that just over a week ago I knew less than nothing about how to mix audio or use Audacity, and there will be plenty of time to practice, and since I own this:
Spoiler (click to reveal)

who knows...

I don't know if the story I formed in any way matches up with any DoW backstory, but I'm happy with it. Sorry you couldn't listen to the whole thing... devil

Hmmm.....

Unlikely though, as all of the vocals in the intro (save 1) were taken from a professionally produced sound effects library.

I just wanted to thank you for this soundtrack, we've had it in the background on our last 2 games. My husband runs a "crackling fire" video on his iPad, on the dining room table, while the winds howl through the stereo system in the living room.

We will be using this soundtrack for all our DoW games in the future, and I am thinking of burning it to CD to take with us to game nights! The occasional "other" noises really add to the game - they startle us mid-turn, or punctuate our various actions, really well.

Maria was just about to search through the boxes inside the gas station when "pop-pop!" - she hears gunshots in the distance. Her hand stops mid-air as she freezes for a moment, hearing nothing but the wind... Oh. Must have been the Sheriff over at the Police Station... or was it?

Thanks, Tiffany. You're quite welcome!

Unfortunately, it's much too long for a CD, unless you either a) burn one section only (effective, but loses a bit of variety in the "other" noises) or b) burn the files onto a CD and have a player that can play MP3 files.

Thank you so much for sharing this! Can't wait to add play it in the background for our game tomorrow night. I listened to the intro but it's so creepy I had to turn it off until my husband gets home.

Very excited to try Jim's sound-effects-based soundtrack next time. Awesome work!

Cool! Nothing says you can't play both at the same time if you want!

Most of the audio is that of a winter wind blowing in the background, so there won't be a lot of obvious sound. After the intro, there are occasional sounds that are louder. Without giving anything away to spoil the suprise of listening the first time ( ) there are some bits of dialog, some environmental sounds, some sound effects, and so on.

But yeah, the majority is just wind.

Great job !

The intro is a bit long, but maybe that's just me.

I have added your ambient soundscape to my geeklist ►Background music for board games.

My thought was that I was telling a small story, and that is just the way it fell into place. I also knew that it was a little long, which is why I made the intro a separate file; it could be played once, then skipped if people felt it was unnecessary.

Thanks. I didn't even know that list existed!

Great job, Jim! surprise I suggest playing this when you start Winter 1:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3Hm6a-brYCY

I have made a collaborative Spotify-playlist with Ambient, Instrumental music for Dead of Winter. Feel free to use and add music - I might delete some if it doesn't fit my taste (sorry, in advance).

http://open.spotify.com/user/113187076/playlist/0lFUMQQCzHne...


Thanks again
