TESTIMONIALS OVER THE YEARS

 

Scott White, Creative Director, Amaze Entertainment

“Will was an absolute pleasure to work with. His music is memorable, it always hits the right mood and I never get tired of hearing his scores. He quickly adapts to any technical limitations and is a true professional. If I have my choice I would choose to use him on all of my projects.”

Zombie Apocalypse Review, Kombo.com

“The very first thing I noticed when I booted up Zombie Apocalypse was the soundtrack. The music in the game has a very lonely, dark feeling to it, and I felt that it set the mood perfectly…The game’s soundtrack also sounded like they came straight from a horror movie.”

X-Men: The Official Game DS Review, IGN

“X-Men: The Official Game’s soundtrack is by far the coolest aspect of the game. Whether it’s the sound engine or simply Amaze hiring a good soundtrack composer, X-Men’s tunes shine through the rest of the game’s mediocrity.”

RAGE Review, VicoGaming.com

“Considering the game is called RAGE, the introduction cinematic completely surprised me. Not only does it perfectly establish the framework for the story, but is also accompanied by haunting piano music that invokes an actual emotional response. Simple, sad and incredibly effective; it is one of my favourite introduction cinematics of any game.”
