We all look forward to Sea of Stars. That’s why we bring you the confirmation of news of this new indie title for Nintendo Switch. The information has been offered today by those responsible.
According to what was shared, the composer Eric W. Brown recently sat down with Game Informer to discuss his soundtrack. This is what he has shared regarding his inspirations:
For this, during the pre-production phase, I was experimenting, and I think initially I wanted to do something more high-fidelity. But, in the end, we arrive at something that has a retro character. It is the same thing that we are doing with the images. None of that would necessarily work on a Super Nintendo. Not the way it looks.
I think part of the reason retro soundtracks were so catchy is because they had so little to work with. The hardware was a very limited sound palette. On the Super Nintendo, for example, you only had eight channels. Whereas today, you have essentially infinite channels. To me, it feels like the compositions were so much stronger because they had such limitations, the classic saying that ‘limitation breeds creativity’. But yeah, I think a staple of retro gaming was really strong hooks.
