Question Dungeon Scroll Gold Title Music

Wait a minute, if you listen to the title music, it sounds like they stole it from a Castlevania game. Did they make it or borrow it with permission?

Default Re: Dungeon Scroll Gold Title Music

I'd like to quote a Terry Pratchett interview for this, but I'm on a phone so you'll just have to imagine.

Anyway, when talking about his books being turned down for a movie adaptation because they would seem too much like a parody of harry potter, he pointed out that he had started his series 15 years earlier. Some of the interviewers blew up at this and got all huffy, saying "So are you saying that J.K.R. stole from YOU?"

He concludes that these assumptions are pointless since both series use existing tropes (wizards,medievel fantasy monsters) that have been around for a long time and that the whole first dibs thing is ridiculous if you look back far enough.

More or less the same way for music, I could get highlights out of castlevania, warriors of might and magic, and eve n parts of baldurs gate, that would have a similar feel to them, but are all very distinct pieces in their own right.

No I mean, if you listen to one of the Castlevania: Lament of Innocence soundtracks and compare it to the title music of Dungeon Scroll, you may notice they sound almost the same, so I thought: Did they steal it or borrow it?

I dunno, probably borrowed it. Jamul seems very careful not to get into any law suits.

By the way, have you noticed that it's really stupid how on some sites you can get sued for your feedback.
