Pixel Pirate Preview

Pixel Pirate Preview

Update! Here’s the latest track we’re using in the game. Had tons of fun writing this. Anyone catch the throw back to Castlevania? Just a tiny motif reference.

Hawken King who runs an indie game development company called Dadako approached me to do music and SFX for a new game of his called Pixel Pirate.  Knowing that the work load could get heavy, I approached my friend and  pianist/organist of Pink Floyd acclaim, Harry Waters to join me.  Harry is a more avid gamer than myself, a great musician and has a great sense of melody.

Since the game is a retro style Metroidvania, we initially started writing using the genius Magical 8-bit Plugin instrument developed and used by the Japanese retro 8-bit jazz group YMCK.  I didn’t want it to be pure chip tune, so I started to introduce reverb/delay and this amazing plugin called DECIMORT on any pure audio sources.

This is a preview video that was used for the first presentation of the game.  Check out our music too!
