Dec 28, 2015

Dr. Malice has something special in store for the 10 year anniversary of Toy Soldiers Unite & The Army of Toy Soldiers. After having spent much time working upon it, Dr. Malice has created a brand new cover and expansion of the song Build A Playland. Together with Silent Addle, a video will be made for this song, to celebrate our anniversary.

But more importantly, they need YOUR help, to create audio and video for this project. Watch the video below for further explanation from Dr. Malice.

  1. I was thinking of creating a completed version of Build a Playland myself. You beat me to it.

    Question: Do we need to use Audacity… can we use GoldWave instead?

    Not entirely sure I can get anything done at all by that deadline, but I’ll see…

    • I put Audacity in the instructions just as a baseline for people who never recorded audio before. However, if you have experience with another recording program, by all means, feel free to use it!

  2. Build A Playland (Extended Version) Lyrics:

    The army is poised and ready
    We have been ever growing
    Makeover the whole world with
    Imagination Flowing

    Soon our time will come
    Robots, hamsters, humans together
    Living, playing, creating as one
    And singing this very song

    So Take My Hand
    We’ll Build A Playland
    Build A Playland
    Build A Playland

    Utopian Playland
    Where everyone is free to create
    Fear has no where to stand
    This world, we will reshape it

    And now our time has come
    Let’s everybody join together
    Live, play, create as one
    And still we’ll sing this song

    So Take My Hand
    We’ll Build A Playland
    Build A Playland
    Build A Playland
