This is the original score for Clark & Dagger, a student-developed stealth co-op game which you can get for free on Windows or Mac OS X: clarkndagger.tumblr.com/download
I got involved with the “Spy & Hacker” project pitched by Brody Brooks to the Game Development Club at Cogswell Polytechnical College, which would later be called Clark & Dagger. I was in charge of the game's audio and later brought on Cameron McLaughlin to co-compose the music and Miles Philippe to help with sound effects. It was a challenge to write something that conformed specifically to the vision of the game's director (Brody), but it seems we were successful in the end.
That said, I take full responsibility for the quality of the mixing (or lack thereof). This game was to be submitted into the IGF student competition a few months back, so we had a deadline, and we were working on the arrangement aspects pretty much up to the final hour. There was no time for tweaks or polish; neither back then nor over the following few months (or I could have just been lazy). Cameron wasn't hot on releasing such raw tracks, but he kindly let me have my way.

The two hidden bonus tracks ("C&D Mission Fail" and "C&D Mission Complete") are merely short jingles.

Special Thanks to:
Cameron, for working with me on this project and showing me some cool new things (such as the Hang "drum", which sadly didn't make it into the soundtrack due to stylistic reasons).
Brody, for directing/producing the game and hosting development meetings at his and Tobiah's house. If it weren't for Brody, the time I spent writing this music probably would have gone into watching more episodes of 24.
Miles, for doing sound effects... so I didn't have to!
The Clark & Dagger team (Forrest Spade, Aaron Weingarten, and everyone else I already mentioned), Game Dev Club, and Cogswell College. Word up!
