Nebular Crush

Game Maker Studio • Pyxel Edit • Ableton Live

A retro-style arcade game developed by my brother and I in our spare time over the course of several years. I was responsible for most of the graphics and game design as well as all of the sound and music, while my brother acted as lead developer.

Nebular Crush combines the frantic action of classic 2D shoot 'em ups with the more cerebral puzzle elements of platformers. Inspired by 80s and 90s arcade games, NebularCrush is easy to learn but difficult to master, appealing to both casual and hardcore gamers.

I composed and produced over 20 tracks of background music. The music is a mix of beat-driven electronica and rock permeated with influences from classic game soundtracks. Here are a few examples:

Digital Bubblebath

Item Unlock

Crush It
