About the Game
Observation Post (OP) Dodge Cross is a comical visual novel set in the future. WWI caused such a devastation on the planet that it was hard for the world to progress after. Time seems to have stood still since the 1930s and 1940s, but the only thing that has evolved is the intelligent robots that are now used in the never ending war. OP Dodge Cross tells the story of behind the frontlines of war against the robots, but one of the robots just walked straight into camp! What will happen next?
About the Music
The purpose of the music was to help convey the feeling of time being stuck in the 1940s after WWI. The musical style is swing big band, popular at the time. The music track is to feel somewhat upbeat (and to juxtapose the mood of the war) but not be too fast. The music was modified to sound as though it was being playing via an old record player. Mood music was also needed which was allowed to incorporate more of a futuristic and robotic feel.
About the SFX
Robotic sounds were needed that were metalic, mechanical, and futuristic. Sounds of war were also needed including gunshots and an atmosphere of a battle taking place off in the distance somewhere.
