Free Game Music for developers!

Recommended Posts

Do you need music for your game? Are you using copyrighted music, or bad music, or no music at all?

Well, I am giving away 100's of tracks of game music to indie game devs for free! This music is all composed by me and all samples/instruments in them are licensed in full, so this music is completely royalty free.

You can find the collection at :

The tracks are sorted by Genre.

Thanks, and enjoy!

Nice work, many of them sound a little nostalgic to me, reminding me of the old 16 bit console days. But your tracks are a lot crisper and fresher sounding. I may look to use some of these in some upcoming action arcade titles I am working on. Keep up the good work.

Wow, these are great (and exactly the kind of retro music I was looking for)! Nice work. Also kudos for stating up from that you're not using unlicensed samples.

Is there a specific license (or licenses) you are releasing these under?

I read through the FAQ and I believe I understand your intent, but this particular clause is a little unclear to me:

[quote]Songs may not be redistributed or sold[/quote]

I'm assuming this means that the songs may not be redistributed/re-released by themselves, but it could also mean that they cannot be redistributed as part of a game.

Thanks again for your hard work!

Wow, that's really cool; thank you.

I can't find a license on your website - how do you want to receive credit?
If I was to use one or more of your songs in my game, would the following in the games credits be sufficient?

[indent][left][font="Times New Roman"]The song '<songname>' was made by [size="2"][b]Deceased Superior Technician[/b][/size][/font][/left][left][font="Times New Roman"]For more songs like this, see: [i]www.nosoapradio.us[/i][/font][/left][left][font="'Times New Roman"][i]
[/i][/font][/left][/indent][font="'Times New Roman"][b][Edit:][/b] Failure on my part! I mistakenly slipped and hit 'vote down' instead of up, and apparently can't undo that.[/font]

Thanks for the feedback everyone, i'm glad you are finding this resource useful!

@Deraj: Songs may not be sold as songs, but can be used in a game or as a soundtrack to cinema. This is mostly to protect them from sample resellers trying to put them on a cd and sell that. Though i probably should put a clearer license up.

@Servant: Sure

I know it's a tough climb to get out in the world of gaming right now, and i just want to help the hard working people get a little farther.

DSTGames, your music is wonderful and I think your generosity could lead you to get hired as a music producer for games. My brother and I are making a game called Math Asteroids and your tunes have really helped spice up the game. Thanks so much.

If you're curious to see how we are using your tunes, try the game out (it's free): http://www.digitalruby.com/mathasteroids/install

Thanks again for this!

I am working on a shooter, and I thought maybe I could mess around with your music in audacity (hope you don't mind) and it sounded amazing! So I'll give you credit even if it's [color=#282828][font=helvetica, arial, verdana, tahoma, sans-serif][size=3][left][background=rgb(250, 251, 252)]royalty free![/background][/left][/size][/font][/color]

Thanks for the replies everyone (it makes me feel good and it keeps the topic current)

It's been 1 1/2 years since i posted this, and the site content has grown to over 300 tracks, nearly 12 hours.

The site interface has been redone with a searchable index that allows you to narrow in on the type of music you need.

Enjoy! Edited by DSTGames
