Creating music for games is a growing industry. As well as the many traditional games platforms like PC, console and even Mac (yes, they do make Mac games!), mobile platforms like iOS and Android have seen an explosion in the number of games available, all of which need music! But this is a very different discipline to making albums or even to composing for film. The requirements of game creators are entirely unique, with many tiny music cues needed in addition to broader themes and motifs.
