Pixel Noir has only 8 days left on Kickstarter, but SWDTech Games is still working hard to churn out content to elicit interest from potential backers. Yesterday, the team announced their soundtrack sampler, which is available on their Bandcamp page. The sampler provides 5 tracks, and it’s available for $3.
The soundtrack was composed by SWDTech Game’s Kunal Majmundar, who is known for his role in video game cover band The One Ups and remixing group The Bad Dudes. Majmundar incorporates RPG musical styles from different eras of gaming. Despite it looking specifically like a SNES game, Pixel Noir jams out to tunes from the 8-Bit, 16-Bit and 32-Bit eras of gaming. Of course, each track feels like it could fit into a noir film.
If you haven’t been keeping up with my Kickstarter Weekly column, you may be missing out on some interesting projects—in this case, Pixel Noir. The game pays homage to 16bit RPGs, although it’s clearly inspired by noir. The game has been described as a cross between Chrono Trigger and Shadowrun, meaning players use guns and beer bottles instead of swords and magic.
Like many classic RPG classics, Pixel Noir’s soundtrack is shaping up nicely. You can check out the sampler for free at their Bandcamp page, and you can even pledge $25 or $100 for the full digital and physical album respectively.
