I'm Jeremiah George. Mostly known as McTricky online, and various places. Music, video games, anime, manga, piano, and blogging anime. Those are my hobbies~ I'm a budding video game musician, and I'm currently doing a Music Production for Media degree course at Ravensbourne.

My style tends to revolve around orchestral instruments and I make a lot of fast-paced music. Nobuo Uematsu is my inspiration for being a video game musician. Yoko Shimomura and Motoi Sakuraba are my musical influences.

Palasiel Quest is a fun, thrilling adventure featuring 5 young people who wind up a long, long way from home!


Jeremiah George - Orchestral JRPG Composer for hire!

Hello, all! My name is Jeremiah George. I go by McTricky around the internet sometimes. I am an independent video game composer, and have been composing for almost 10 years. My main style of music is orchestral and I particular excel in composing action/battle pieces for RPG-style games, though I am capable of composing in other styles and situations to fit your RPG. My music is often compared to Yoko Shimomura's style, too. I work from my home studio and usually work efficiently and quickly for clients.

I use Logic Pro X to compose my music and Adobe Audition to edit audio. I have sample libraries and plugins such as Kontakt, Spitfire Audio Albion, 8dio, Impact Soundworks, iZotope and Waves products at my disposal.

I'm able to compose music with a clear tone and story in mind, and I can have it prepared in whichever format you wish to fit your game's needs (including loopable copies for RPG Maker VX Ace/MV).

My rates are available upon request, and are different for non-commercial and commercial projects. I can work within a budget so long as it is reasonable to me!

I have composed and arranged over 100 pieces and I have an extensive portfolio of work. I have a YouTube channel with 11,000 subscribers where I arrange existing video game, anime, and TV music into orchestral action renditions.

Some of you may have heard of/played Lakria Legends. I was the sole music composer for the whole game, which took home many Misaos awards including Game of the Year, and Best Sound/Music.

Below you can find samples of my work for different scenarios for an RPG.

RPG Action/Battle Music

RPG Town/Village Music

RPG Field/Dungeon Music

RPG Event/Cutscene Music

Alternatively, you can listen to a 12-minute reel of all the music I composed in the past year.

The best way to get in contact with me is via my email which is

I'd also be happy to answer any questions you may have!

Thanks for reading, and I look forward to working with you all!

Boss Series

Hey, guys it's McTricky.

I've been composing some battle themes and recently and I thought I'd get some expert opinions on my boss themes. I'm making four boss themes, but I've made 3 so far.

Boss I ~Without Remorse~

Boss II ~Fateful Encounter~

Boss III ~Eternal Conflict~

Union Battle ~Vehement Coalition~

This was kinda experimental. I was trying out a different time signature and mixing different tempos. It goes from a 130 BPM 5/4 time sig to a 160 BPM 4/4 time sig.



Hey, guys it's McTricky!

A piano-driven piece I made. This is a character theme for Serene, a character in my game. It's called Loveless because Serene once loved someone but that person betrayed her love so, Serene has now become "loveless" meaning that she has no love for anyone anymore. Tell me what you think!:P

Loveless ~Serene's Theme~



FFVIII Boss Playthrough

I don't know if this is the right section but anyway I'm starting an FFVIII boss playthrough on YouTube. This is my second playthrough. I'll be posting videos of bosses here along with a general guide.

NOTE: Is there anyway I can post youtube videos on a post instead of linking to the youtube site itself?

Okay, so I know some of you don't like any Final Fantasies after FFX. Well, here's a topic to discuss about your favourite Final Fantasy boss themes. Me being the lazy git I am, instead of typing it down, I'll give y'all a video I made a long while ago.

Eternal Genesis [DEMO]

Eternal Genesis

Welcome to the Eternal Genesis project thread.

This is my first actual project that I want to work on, and I plan on making it to the best of my ability. I've been working on this game since September 07.

In a world that was almost destroyed into oblivion during the Elemental War 1000 years ago, humanity in the world of Ascensia has finally returned and everyone has gotten back to they're normal lives. The story follows a man named Emerson as he embarks on an adventure after being resurrected by a girl called Amalia Winters, whom he meets at Valchita University. Emerson has a virus called Genocitis. It's a deadly disease that has no effect on him until 15 days later at which he will die if it's not treated. Unfortunately for him, there is no known cure for the Genocitis. But that's not going to stop Emerson. Emerson and his best friend David embark on a journey to find the cure within 15 days. But when he sets out Amalia is kidnapped and Emerson goes to save her. But his reckless actions leads to her sad fate. Now, Emerson is even more determined to find the cure to help everyone he holds dear and save the world from becoming non-existent.

The Story In A Nutshell
Genesis. The first element to ever exist in our planet Ascensia.
Revalation. The last element thought to have been vanished 100 years ago.
These two elements fused together would create an element so powerful, it could change the face of the universe forever.


Emerson is a young man who lives a normal life. Just like everybody elses. But all that changes when Emerson goes on a field exam and finds a wierd plant in the forest and takes it back with him.

The field exam mission was to find a plant that will fuse with one of the preset plants back at the base, to make a life spell.

Emerson manages to bring back the plant known as the Genesip Plant.

There are one two Genesip Plants in Ascensia. One is kept in the Florana Forest. This one is gravely dangerous. The other one is kept in the Tahoma Ruins, and that one's effects still remain a mystery.


Emerson passes his field exam with flying colours for bringing in a very rare plant and making a life spell of the Genesis Element.

And that's just the start of his problems...

Eternal Genesis OST

Hey, people it's M.T. I'm working on a project called Eternal Genesis. Basically, I have 4 people working on music including me.

I just wanna share with you some of my music from it.

The Art of Eternity - By McTricky
This is the main theme of Eternal Genesis, and it's the first track I've ever composed.

Get Serious - By McTricky

This is a theme for a cutscene and a battle.

Between Time - By McTricky
This is a battle theme I made on a program I'm unexperienced with, but it still turned out OK. It is an abstract battle theme with wierd noises and bits of orchestra.

Metallic Clash - By McTricky
This is a battle theme that is used in a facility or a technology lab and the party is escaping after being caught by a large security bot.

Epic Galactica
This is an abstract battle theme that takes place in space.

He's come....

I'm not good at writing long stuff about me but anyway...

My name is McTricky. I prefer M.T, or Tricky. I live in Great Britain, in the East side of London in the ghetto parts. I'm 15 years old and I attend secondary school, studying Music, Media Studies and Graphic Design.

I first started with RMXP. I got word of RMXP from a boy named Sagar (we call him Sega for the fun of it even though it's pronounced the same.) That day after school I went home and downloaded the program straight away. I was surprised at the simple layout of the program and I got used to the thing quite quickly. I made an 1hr RPG called Terror's Tale which featured me and some of my friends. It sucks. Seriously. I didn't even know how to use mapping layers properly. I then started working on another game called Trick Fantasy which also featured me and some friends. That was much better than the other one but had some technical errors and mapping issues. So I scrapped that. From then I started working on loads of different RPGs just for the sake of it, Urban Myth, Ultimate Legacy, Empire of Fate. And then I began writing a story and that story was the birth of Eternal Genesis, the project I now have a demo on. I've used RMVX for about 10mins until I got bored and I've managed to make a sweet 1hr game on RM2k3.

I'm an Eventer & Musician. I play the piano. I've been playing piano for about 5 years. I've never taken piano lessons before but I make good music. I use Sonar 7.0 (with VST plugins) at home and Cubase SX at the studio. Can't think of anything else to I'll just leave it at that.

EDIT: I also noticed that Guess That Game is also here. I started the topic on Creation Asylum and Angel Spire.
