MetaVendetta Episode 9: My Indie Valentine
The whole crew is BACK, and just in time for Valentine’s day – the day that speaks to every true digital romantic out there. It’s that time of there year where, if you’re like me, you just now realized it was Valentine’s Day and your kicking yourself. So why not put this podcast on your cellular device while you go dig yourself out of a hole!
DoubleFine does it again. Delivering on the whimsy in spades. This soundtrack is absolutely delightful, it’s honestly hard not to smile.
David Fenn delivers in a big way on setting the tone for Titan Souls. The tracks are split right down the middle ( half adventure /half boss) Everything about this game brings me back to that Shadow of the Colossus spirit with a bit of Sword and Sworcery mixed in.
This “Spy-Fi” stealth-based platformer is frenetic. The soundtrack invokes a sort of 80’s neon nostalgia. Sferro does an awesome job on the title track. Make sure and check out his other work on his official soundcloud.
Brandon Blume sets the stage for an oddly unsettling melodramatic piece. Reminiscent of a soap opera theme, it does an outstanding job of understanding it’s place. Serena itself has an excellent story about the dev process that everyone should check out.
NOT INDIE #5. Schala’s Theme from Chrono Trigger
Gabriel Sandoval’s favorite videogame track off all-time is this month’s non-indie song of the month. You’ll have to listen to the episode to find out why.
