This album is a compilation of all of the music I created during the 2016 Global Game Jam. Each year, the Global Game Jam challenges game developers in 63 countries to create games, either solo or in teams, over a 48 hour period. Participants are challenged to develop their games in some way around an annual theme, which for this year was "ritual".This is my 5th year participating as a freelance composer, working with various artists, programmers and writers throughout the event.

All of the music in this album was written within the 48 hour period between Friday January 29, and Sunday January 31st. With each track I've included a brief description of the games for which the songs were written and links to the official Global Game Jam download page for each game. I encourage you to download and share this music with friends if you enjoy it, and please check out my other albums on the site. Thanks for listening!

Track Name: Hello, My Beelze-baby! (Blood For The Blood God)
Oh Hello my Beelze-baby!
You really make a feller feel swell!
I will sit and pine until you’re mine
And I’l use the ancient artifact to summon you from Hell.

Oh Hello my Beelze-baby
My feelings for you i can’t disguise
So please come through the portal
Just to cuddle this mere mortal
You’ll always be my Lord of the Flies!

Oh Farewell my Beelze-baby
I’m sorry, yes I do not mean to flake
I know it’s just a trifling but your presence is quite stifling
I’m starting to think this was a huge mistake

Oh Farewell my Beelze-baby
Alas I think it’s time to say goodbye
I must voice the strong concern I’ll end up doused in flames eternal
Oh dear God I’m begging please don’t let me die!
