Hi there! In case you didn't know, I created newgrounds. No, it wasn't made by some giant company - just some dumb kid who now has help. I also co-founded the Behemoth; we made Alien Hominid and Castle Crashers. Icon by JohnnyUtah, banner by Pegosho.

Music to Make Games To

Posted by TomFulp - May 24th, 2022


For the past few years I had been making a monthly music playlist but the lists were getting so long that I fell out of it. I'm giving it another go with the May playlist, where I've tried to focus on upbeat music that can inspire game ideas or work well in a game, with some other favorites mixed in along the way.


The playlist thumbnail is Share Your Heart by @TheRealArtie; I thought it fit the upbeat vibe!



I also wanted to make note of a new release by @sorohanro: a performance of Trumpet Voluntary. I could imagine animators finding this song useful in certain situations:



In general I'd love to see more people make us of the Audio Portal in their games and movies. It's why the Audio Portal was originally created almost 20 years ago!


If you're ever looking for something specific, try clicking the "Advanced" link in the top right corner of our search results. It has a lot of additional search criteria including search by length and search by licensing settings.

Try searching for random terms that fit the mood and style you're looking for!

All hail the Audio Portal!

Ooh perfect I’ll definitely listen to some beats while I maek muh gamez
Thanks fulperino

More like music to make love to. Hey yoooooo. ;) For real though that Trumpet piece would sound great in a cathedral scene, especially with the backing organ.

Its Cool Of You To Help Developers By Provideing Neat Music

Ayy, thanks Tom!

I think the advanced button is a bit too small to notice, making it bigger and making it pop more would help I think. Good stuff though!

*Yawn* Cool I guess.

@Eyelanoid I Thought It Was Nice Of Him

oooooo nice playlist mr fulp!! And I didnt know about those search terms until now! Thanks for sharing!

Thanks for doing this Tom! I'm actually working on another decent project as of now so this will come in handy.

Hell yeah

got inspired and found some great tracks, this ones pretty amazing, especially if you liked the jsr ost!! https://www.newgrounds.com/audio/listen/959879

There should be like... a music inspired game jam

I've been intending to get a game jam going soon, this should probably be it!

Thank you so much for adding my song to the playlist! :D

@Potatoman Nice idea!

@Dungeonation That's right! ^-^

yo tom, for some reason every time i type somethin it like dissapears, why is dat brudda?

Where is that happening to you? Does the text box clear out or do you make a post and then it vanishes later?

Yooo! this is a solid playlist. I've actually been dabbling in making NG character playlists on Spotify. (mainly the bots lol)
I've always been a sucker for playlist curating though I haven't done it in a short while and this has inspired me to get back in the saddle! Much love, Man!

Eminem's 'Music to Be Murdered By' came to mind immediately when I read the title...

Very different vibe though! Feelgood; family-friendly sonic selections.

@Potatoman @TomFulp YES ANOTHER GAME JAM YESSSSSS
