Choicest VGM - VGM #249 - Detroit - Factory Screen

Screenshot of Detroit computer game Factory Screen


Soundtrack composed by: Christopher J. Denman and Jason P. Rinaldi

This track plays when you first enter the game proper: I call it by the very creative name of "Factory Screen" because it shows a... um... factory in the background. The screen also works as a redundant main menu to run your company since you're able to click on different buildings of your factory and access the various departments of your automobile company such as Marketing, R&D, Administration, etc. I say "redundant" because you can also access these departments through a menu bar at the bottom of the screen.

The music has this pompous, elitist feel to it; the kind that wealthy industrialists with top hats and monocles would listen to while savouring some fine Cuban cigars.

The music was recorded through DOSBOX and consequently this is DOSBOX's emulation of OPL3 I believe, the FM synthesis sound chip used in a lot of old Soundblaster cards.
