Waterflame's News

Posted by Waterflame - 8 days ago

Hi NG!

2022 is here, and I'm finally back to a stable ground. Got some updates on things to come and things already here.

- First of all, I have a community discord now, at last! Everyone is welcome, and the link is permanent :) (But read the rules first)

Waterflame Discord server

This used to be a patreon only thing, then not a thing at all for some years as I scaled back all my socials for a long while. But for the past 3 months its been open and ironed out as the numbers increase, and I think it has become a pretty chill zone, thanks to a lot of community help and figuring out a structure together. So if you want an extra place besides NG to share your art and drop a few memes, I'd love to see you there.

In other old news, the Radio Livestream Is still alive and well, currently sitting on 414 tracks on random shuffle. (Some exclusives there not found here ;)

- I also opened a Minecraft server lol. Its permanent, and everyone is welcome. Rules and info can be found on the discord server.

We started releasing more collaborative stuff in the company I am a part of, autodidactic: Like VR Jetpack game on steam, Lightyears from home (in production still) and some recent collaborative music tracks. You should check it out :D It is probably through this studio of ours I will start producing my game too once that gets rolling this year.

As usual I have a ton of ideas for 2022 and I am probably only going to be able to do half of them, but heres too a better year than the last! There will be lots more music, that's for sure! 2 OST releases and at MINIMUM one new album is planned for this year.

(I'll leave you with One of my latest tracks, but with a little animation to follow)

I am back to uploading normally after my album Vast Finally dropped, and my first upload In half a year was this track,


Dormant YT / Dormant NG

More of an experimental dark track, as it is the season ;) But I have many more tracks planned for the last 2 months of the year too. They just don't quite fit the spooky good vibes we are having right now. So instead, lets lean into the spooks!

I decided to make some of the remasters/remakes from my new album available, specifically the dark and Halloweeny ones. So here are 2 remasters and one remake from Vast!

Deluding Beats ( Deludebeats Remake)

Pain Engine

Running From Demons

(Thanks to pftq for extra video and thumbnail help to speed things up)

I have also compiled a YouTube playlist with my creepy and dark tracks, for all your spooky needs:

Feels good to be back. Stay tuned for more, and Happy Halloween!




Posted by Waterflame - September 26th, 2021

My YouTube livestream is back! Its basically waterflame radio. Random tracks from my catalogue play endlessly on shuffle, with chat enabled. Right now there are 220 tracks in the pool, but I am adding more in updates until everything I have ever released (pluss some rare unreleased stuff) will play there on rotation :D Full playlist in the description link. The graphics are all from my titles too, and I plan to add a bunch more graphics to the visual loop as well.

Come say hi some time!

24/7 continuous playlist stream

T H A N K S & C R E D I T S


Thank you to everyone that helped me out extra with this! And for all the support. Thanks to all the patreons, and the more diehard followers cheering me along and throwing out suggestions (you know who you are ;D) Fastland and pftq for being the final frontier and sanity check on masters. pftq for helping out with orchestral spacing and mastering, it saved a lot of time. Thanks to Avari for helping out with track promo number and text editing and general help to speed things up.


Now that this gigantic task is over, I can return to other things again slowly. So hopefully my online presence will start coming alive again shortly. I am still working on many projects, and have no plans of stopping!




Posted by Waterflame - December 31st, 2020

I don't know about you guys, but I'm pretty sick of 2020.

Just thought I would end it with updating you guys on whats been going on, and what I have planned for 2021!

So first of all, Album news! The elephant in the room is that I did not finish an album this year, like I planned too. But it could have been out now, I just don't think its finished. And I would never want to push a rushed project! This album is a huge undertaking. Mostly having to battle with my past horrible mastering practices and dig up ancient VSTs, but about 32 of the 50 planned tracks are done! This is going to be a huge album. With all the tracks you probably wish were on spotify, in remastered high quality versions (some with new flare and extensions, even!) And on top of that, a few exclusive album tracks as well! So, I am not letting it go until it is done, and done right. But I will say, you can expect a release date announcement in January, with a full track list! :D

2nd post is the optimization of my YouTube channel.

I thought I was just doing a one-evening job when I sat down to fix my videos descriptions,

and I have been telling people for so many years that they can find relevant links in almost all descriptions. This turns out to not really have been the case! So, I'm sorry for that for those who found it hard to figure stuff out.

I spent days going from the first video to the last, and I am still not 100% done. But I'm up to

2015, so things should be good from there (Ill still go through the last part though, just to be sure). But most videos should now have relevant end title cards, updated tags, updated descriptions, and spelling error fixes lol.

Another thing I wanted to mention is that I've decided to probably not take any contract work next year. I have wanted to finish my albums and start making my own game for years now and I'm finally in a situation where I have the chance to do so. So, I will focus all my efforts on first finishing the albums (all of them), then focus on gathering a team and start work on my first real video game. I also plan to have more contact with other artists and finally try to do some collabs. I already have a lot of people in mind, so stay tuned for that as well!

When it comes to new single music tracks, unfortunately I didn't have any time to finish any of them before the end of this month, however I have a lot of cool tracks nearing completion - one of them being a continuation of an old classic, so I'm excited to show you guys that.

It's been a tough year but I feel like I've also gotten closer to a lot of what I want to achieve, and I think I made it through alright despite all the hurdles. I hope everybody has a better year in 2021!

Happy new year and thank you so much for all the support! See you next year.

I will be in San Francisco for the entire duration of GDC (Game Developers Conference) this year,
And I will most likely be there every day of the event.

I will also be holding a fireside chat with my friend and colleague Denny Schneidemesser (Some of you might know him from NG back in the day). Hope to see some NG people there too!

>>>The waterflame bundle<<<
Limited time bundle, with 17 albums. Available for 2 weeks from today. Worked with Groupees to make it happen, with charity support to Direct Relief. have a look!

It took some time to set up, and with it I completed the current album discography on bandcamp as well, and changed the design! What you get in this bundle is what is there at the moment.

Most of the tracks on the older albums have been polished yet again and sound louder and cleaner than before.

New album out NOW!

SURGE by Waterflame
102 minutes of experimental & melodic Breakbeat spanning 22 tracks.
I am so happy to finally be finished with this album! I could have poked on it for another 6 months
im sure but, I had to draw the line somewhere. I feel like this is the first album that truly represents
the breakbeat style I always wanted to convey.

Itunes: http://itunes.apple.com/album/id1319385561?ls=1&app=itunes
Spotify: https://open.spotify.com/album/1nf8MgFwcV9NWPQaH4Q8tr
Apple music: http://itunes.apple.com/album/id/1319385561

(Uh, I had more written here but I think a weird emoji I pasted in cut the post in half.. so, ill tell you guys next time.)

Hi Newgrounds.
Happy clock day! :) I have no clock related news or art, sadly. But I do have some other cool things to share.
I am back from a 3 week stay in bed with a sinus / airway infection. Nasty. But I live!

I know things have been slow on my end with uploads and info, but that changes on all platforms from now on.
I have cleared more time for my personal projects, and I am finally taking more time off to recover from my burnout.
Basically, less contract work, more creative projects.

And with that in mind, I created a patreon (and a track+animation with it!):
Patreon is a membership platform where you can support me with a fixed ammount per month,
and help me make more music (+animation / streaming etc in the future). In excange you get some
insight in what I do in between submissions. As well as high quality downloads, WIP tracks, and similar bonuses. (Check out the tier on the page)

If you like what I do and want to see me do those things more frequently than now, check it out
and consider becoming a patreon! :)

The track in the video is a teaser for the full "populous district" track I am making. Following the "skyworld" series of tracks. I also animated the video more than usual, playing with paralax and pixel art again.

Other than that nifty stuff, Infinite minigolf is now out on consoles and steam! And the infinite minigolf soundtrack is available on my Bandcamp and youtube!:

11 Tracks made specifically for the game, not released anywhere for 2 years until now.
Ive been hyped to show these tracks for some time.
The OST will also be out in online stores like spotify, itunes etc in a few days.

I also scored an animation some time ago, and it finally got released. It is called "space chase", and you should go check it out here on newgrounds!: http://www.newgrounds.com/portal/view/697136

I released the song on YT as well!:

Thats all for now. I'll come back with more tracks soon ;D
Thanks for the continued support <3

I figured it was time to make an update!

Ive been away for some time once again,
and many things has happened since then. Im terrible at sharing news as they come, so I figured I would just compile them all here now that I am back at my battlestation.

First of all, I have finally moved in to a new apartment, with my girlfriend. The place is not completely unpacked yet, but we got out enough things from boxes to be able to live here at least!
I love it here, its in the middle of town, and I think life here will be much easier, compared to the old place!
(I gotta get up tomorrow and wash the old apartment top to bottom tho, not looking forward to that .. x_x)

This combined with some pressing deadlines has been the reason why I have been away for so long. I have lost a lot of traction and time recently due to a lot of work, personal family stuff, and a general funk. Not to mention money shortage (living in norway is no joke). Ive been burnt-out for so long, but it is starting to feel better now. It looks like I will be back to my normal stuff by the end of this week!

My scedule moving forward will be sound-effects for MaxGames some days a week, but the rest is relatively open form here on out. I cant wait to work on my projects again, and start submitting music at a more frequent rate. The goal is to get out 2-3 tracks a month, and start some twitch action!

Speaking of tracks..

Its time to reveal what I've been cookin'!

I made a sountrack-score for a short animation by the talented Anna Prado!
I have been dying to show this one off, I love this short, its like a love-letter to the golden days of 90s animation. But in glorious shaded 3d. I am really happy with how the music turned out! Everything musical except the credits music is made by yours truly. Enjoy!

Allisk8rAnna PradoVimeo

from on .

One of the other projects I've been working on is the soundtrack for "Rocket Wars" !
It is rocking a dynamic soundtrack that flows seamlessly from track to track, and will be out next month!
No ETA on the track releases yet, but keep your eye on this one, its a "blast" to play ;)

Infinite minigolf is still in early access on steam, but have been announced for consoles and VR as well!
I am still very proud of this soundtrack and cant wait to share it. I put my everything into those melodies,
and it is closing in on release! No dates yet, but you can play the early access on steam allready!
Here is a few trailers of the game (and sneakpeaks of the music ;)

In other old-new news:
The game "An alien with a magnet" that I made the sound-effects and music tracks for 4 years ago, is now available on steam.

If you just want to listen to the OST, you still can over at my Bandcamp or Youtube playlist

Lastly, I am still working on my albums!
I have been teasing you guys with one of them for quite some time, an unamed album in my fictive universe "skyworld".
The other album will be much like the previous ones not tied to any titles, with many of my current releases remastered, and a few exclusive ones ;) So stay tuned for that. As usual I am super-vague with the dates cause if theres anything I've learned, I cant keep them. Something always comes up to halt my progress, haha. Lets hope thats not the case this time

Thanks for reading, and thank you all for your support! Its amazing that I can still do this. And I hope it will never stop.

Untill next time, later allig8tor
