I’m very happy to announce that I’ve composed the music for the Clash of Kings video game! Developed by ELEX, Clash of Kings is a popular real-time strategy game, and one of the top-grossing mobile games in the world, downloaded over 65 million times worldwide. In Clash of Kings, players build kingdoms, compete to gather the most resources, join alliances and fight other cities in awesome combat across expansive battlefields.
Here are a few of the positive reviews that Clash of Kings has received:
“Fight other players and exotic creatures in this addicting real-time strategy game.” Juan Vega, AndroidGuys.com
“Addictive city building and strategy gameplay with a social side. A heck of a lot to do and endless enemies to fight. In depth combat system. Recommended.” Allan Curtis, Android Rundown
“A wonderful game where you defend imposing castles and conquer kingdoms for survival. The real time game strategy is highly innovative and lets you climb the power ladder to become the ruler of kings in your all-encompassing empire.” Laran Joseph, TheAppzine

Hi Winifred! Could you talk a little about the production for these tracks? Are the instruments recorded or sampled? I really liked the string sounds on “Last Empire”!
