Deep bass, deep grooves, and mountains of lush synthesizer sounds. This week we look for the perfect driving music, and end up finding the best synthwave ever composed for video games.
Join us on a deep-dive exploration of cave related music! Creepy caverns, dangerous dungeons, and um.. uh… murky mines? Pernell’s tracks make Rob feel like he’s in a chill and romantic underground grotto, hanging with all of his magical friends with none excluded. Keep listening for the Bonus Round part of the show, it’s an awesome one this week!
Looking for the best C64 music the little computer system has to offer? How about the most ROCKIN Genesis tunes you’ve ever heard? Then look no further! We do a composer-focused episode devoted to none-other than Rob Hubbard!
You! Traveler! Stop there! You may not enter the town of Pernellshire without first collecting some items I require. My family has been attacked by orcs, and I need you to collect 50 squirrel skins. There, off you go! No use standing around. Go on then.
Welcome to the surface of RNP388. We need your help eliminating the alien threat. You alone can stop the invasion armed with your boom-box full of excellent Metroid music!
Tune in as we focus on the works of composer Yoko Shimomura! She has worked in the business since the 80s with such amazing music ranging from Street Fighter II to Kingdom Hearts. Rob and Pernell share tracks from her amazing career, and share stories of old arcades, and mythical animals.
This week we take a second look at music composed specifically for world maps in games. We are honored to have a musical guest joining us, Amanda Lepre from the band Descendants of Erdrick! She brings her vast musical insight and love of fantasy RPG’s to the conversation. We discuss how important it is for world map music to create the mood, emotionally setting up the player for a new section of the game.
