Alternate Reality Intro Music Recreation Last Half - A euphoric melody remake of a 1980's RPG


Through all the years of playing games, what stands out the most isn't always the gameplay, but that soundtrack that plays in the background to set the tone of the game being played. The creepyness of Silent Hill, the upbeat tempo of Arkanoid on the C64, or even the melody of Zelda still playing in our minds to this day. So why am I mentioning this now? Well Jace Hall has found his musical love, as he has done a recreation of the melody of Alternate Reality - The City, an RPG type game released by the American company Datasoft in 1985-88 for a multitude of computers.



Although this game was released on the Mac, C64, Amiga, Atari 8-bit, Atari ST and Apple II. Jace Hall felt the opening music of Alternate Reality on the Atari 8-bit computer was one of the best pieces of music that was created at the time. Although it still sounded amazing now, his vision was to recreate this amazing piece to make it more epic with modern technology while keeping it as close as possible to the original composed by Gary Gilbertson all those years ago.  Thus here we have the end result, an upbeat yet euphoric tune which takes us back to Gary's 1985-88 classic.
