Hello there, I can only comment on the music side of things as I was indeed the music composer for the game. My idea was to not distract the player from the game too much, as you know if your going to play the game for hours you want music to not get annoying,drive you too crazy. I am in the process of composing more exciting pieces to be added for later updates, so I'll keep everyone posted on that.

Thank you for taking the time to review the game and hopefully there are more good things to come.

Thanks for the comment! I think you accomplished your goal for the music. None of the music was annoying, some was relaxing and just provided a little musical backdrop for the game. Music that isn't subtle does run the risk at becoming annoying or grating. For it to work, I think there needs to be a large variety to the music so the same melodies don't repeat themselves to often.

Great thank you, I hope to have a lot more variation in my compositions in the up coming dates.

I think the music is very strong and game-appropriate. Any intent to make it available for purchase?

I believe there will be a soundtrack from Pandora:First Contact in the near future, I can say there will be extra music scores added to it as well.

More updates soon.

I read your review and it is better than many of the "Pro" reviews. Some sites seem to think one paragraph is enough to warrant calling it a review. It isn't.

Putting ENIGMA music into any game can't hurt. I could listen to that all day and most of the time I do.

The music in MTW1 (Medieval Total War 1) was pretty good too. I like drums in music when I play a wargame. Not wipeout or anything like that, but, like african drums or kettle drums in orchistras
