News, Music & Updates
Here in Tokyo things have been a bit shaky recently, with a big and wobbly 7.8-magnitude earthquake hitting us on the weekend. Ironically earlier on Saturday I had been working on the screen-shake and earthquake effects for Tokyo Dark, I'm now worried that our in-game effects are a little too effective!
Today we have a sonic treat for you! Another preview track from the Tokyo Dark soundtrack: Tokyo Darker and Dirtier
Matt Steed [ Tokyo Dark's composer and audio wizard ] shares his plans for the sound of Tokyo Dark
I am excited, very excited. Being a musician/composer is the best job in the world but every now and again you start work on a project that really pulls at the creative strings. Being allowed to freely explore your art is a rare gift and not one i take lightly, but it's one i am very grateful for.
My musical influences are broad. Anything from death metal to j-pop, from folk to experimental noisecore and i will be making full use of this. Invading my sonic consciousness at the moment are the likes of Boards of Canada, Merzbow, The Rosemary's baby soundtrack, NIN, Portal(aus), Pink floyd, Autechre, Igor Stravinsky and many more.
My mind has been running wild with ideas for the soundtrack, squirming like a toad as Mr Morrison would say. Incorporating the idea of a slipping sanity into the music really speaks to me, one i intend to explore at varying degrees of subtlety. In preparation i have been creating custom sample libraries, building bespoke percussive instruments and getting my hands on old 70s reel to reel recorders and VCRs. My studio now looks like a lab......Or perhaps more like a lab :)

Disgaea meets Persona YES PLEASE!
Finally a shout out to Regalia - Of Men And Monarchs we love the look of this one! Pixelated Milk are combining the strategic combat of Disgaea with the social links of Persona to make a beautiful and original fantasy tactical rpg. Regalia has just launched on Kickstarter (early bird rewards still available) and is well worth checking out!
