Sometimes video game music is full of cheese in the best way. I'm talking saxophones, jazzy piano chords, and that feeling you're in a department store elevator. Or even better, the feeling that you're about to watch your favorite network family sitcom from the 90s! So much Sega Saturn, SO MUCH. Joining us on this journey is Hammock, host of the fabulously-smooth VGM podcast KVGM The Last Wave. If you want jazzy, chill, and smooth, then Hammock is your man. And KVGM is your podcast!

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.
