We just finished making music and sounds for a an interesting game called Battle Sheep. Battle Sheep is a real-time strategy with RPG elements.
In the game there is a place called Medieval village, the place where you upgrade your castle and characters. The picture looks cartoonish and the music should fit the picture. We are not looking for epic or dark music but rather fantasy and cute.
We decided to create a simple melody in Dorian mode which gives this medieval mood to the track. We also didn't want it to sound like a story about kings and dragons, that's why we kept classic instruments. To add some fun and highlight the cartoonish style of the location, we decided to use an accordion.
We recorded a short screencast of the Medieval village music theme.
