Just after "How do I get a job making games?" the second most common query this publication receives is the more specific "How do I get a job making music for games?" As with most all professions, it’s always good to look to a master for direction and inspiration. And when it comes to games and music, Chance Thomas is definitely one of the masters. Composing and producing the main themes for the Lord of the Rings game series, Thomas received eight Game Audio Guild Network (G.A.N.G.) Award nominations, with The Hobbit winning Best Original Music Soundtrack. An active and involved member of the game industry, Thomas also helped create G.A.N.G. and has served as Chairman of the Music and Sound peer committees for the Academy of Interactive Arts and Sciences. Thomas and his music production company HUGEsound are credited with numerous high-profile game soundtracks including one of the first live orchestral scores for games, Quest for Glory V. Thomas has been featured as a game music "sage" in numerous books and articles and has been described as "a composer’s composer."
