If you’ve ever played Star Control when you were a kid, you should check out The Ur-Quan Masters. Ur-Quan is an open source version of Star Control 2, based on material from the game’s original creators. What got me thinking about Star Control was the sounds in the game. I remember some of the “alien themes” vividly. I was hoping I’d find the game and try to create ringtones out of them.
Evidently, I’m not the only one who’s liked SC’s music — Precursors is a group of (Finnish!) enthusiasts who have remixed the music from Star Control II.
