The Lord of the Rings meets Final Fantasy and Zelda. Forgotten Lands was released on October 7, 2011, and is the music composed for the video game "Forgotten Lands VIII: The Legend of Shadow Lake" created by TBC Productions. The music is a symphonic style written for full orchestra, and is similar to the soundtrack of The Lord of the Rings movies written by Howard Shore, the music from the Final Fantasy video game series written by Nobuo Uematsu, and the Legend of Zelda game series written by Koji Kondo. The music is for a video game, so the songs are designed to repeat forever. On the album, shorter songs will be repeated once, while the longer themes will only play once through. The CD is designed so that it will jump to the next track once the song has reached the repeat point, so several of the songs will end abruptly since they don't really have an ending. This album contains the best themes from the game since there was a lot more music written than could fit onto one CD. The video game itself is a new classic RPG style computer game for Windows PCs. It's written in the old classic 8-Bit style of the mid 1980s, similar to the original Zelda and the first Final Fantasy game.
