Its Caturday! and time for another Mewgenics update!
This week its time to talk again about the soundtrack, ill start you off with a little track called Dirty Mittens.
You can download the full track Here, along with the last track "The Ballad of D. Claude" on the Ridiculon Bandcamp Page.
These are just 2 of over 12 fully produced "jukebox" tracks that intertwine with the rest of the games soundtrack. they change with the weather, so when it starts to rain it will cue up the slow moody tracks, or when it gets really hot the more fast paced tracks appear.
Im quite blown away by how great of a job Matthias and John have done on this album, its by far the most listenable album ive heard from a game since Katamari and just about as nutty.
For those of you who missed our 1st soundtrack announcement, here is a video that will update you on exactly who these guys are and where you might know them from.
One of my personal faves on the soundtrack, The Ballad Of D. Claude, sheds light on the life of an alley cat from Boone County. The full track is available on Bandcamp free to check out (with lyrics!) and can be purchased for anything you'd like to pay :)
I give you the title screen track for Mew-Genics (Cat Chase)
So we really splurged with the soundtrack for Mew-genics, the game will feature a full album of over 20 studio recorded songs, with more than half of them with lyrics! we really wanted to make the games music feature extended themes of the game or small stories within each song, kind of how Katamari did it in a way, except all our songs are about cats!
The Mew-genics album is being written and composed by Matthias Bossi and Jon Evans. a few of you will know Matthias as the narrator voice in The Binding of Isaac, others might know him from the band Sleepy Time Gorilla Museum, but here are more in depth details on the album, special music guests and more!
