Very awesome stuff! And I love the music, though I feel it's slightly too "bombastically cinematic", but maby that's what you're going for. At any rate, It's really quality stuff. You guys are going to be hard-pressed to pick the right song for the Main Menu! :O

Awesome music!
My plan is to crowdsource a plan.

Oh, I'm big on "big" music, such as owning almost every album of 2 Steps from Hell. I live on that stuff, but I'm a  critic on the idea that the music I've heard for this game so far sounds very fitting for big movie scenes, and not something your subconscious would be able to handle hearing for a year straight while playing in-game combat. The music is amazing, I'm just wondering if maby it's too amazing for the purpose  it's trying to serve... that is, unless they're planning to use all these songs as the title screen theme song(s)? The main menu can always be big and cinematic, but they've got 3 songs like that so far...

I see your point as each one sounds like a main theme. But there is a lot going on in the background that none of us are aware of. I'm sure they've got it handled.

Especially since in the FAQ they talk about fiddle tunes. I'm guessing this is where a lot of the ingame music will go.

Aye, I'm thinking that too, and about the FAQ saying they'll use actual civil war music.
As far as main menu music ideas go, I have a personal opinion about it, and that's that I think, rather than a "suspense and drama with a hint of desperate heroes" soundtrack, it would be more fitting and novel(and rally up and excite folks just as effectively) if it were... how to find the right words; big yet march-like, American with a hint of traditional sound and a sense of, as I would put it, "that southern giddy hurrah!" feeling(I'm sure Yankees have something similar to that feeling; we are the same country, after all). Maby even something I could sit at the title screen and just hum along with spirit! :O

I hope that the prototype will be on PC, Mac and Linux.
