Delicious melodies and lush orchestration from Pokémon Reorchestrated’s Braxton Burks and celebrity piano streamer Kyle Landry.
SEATTLE – March 6, 2018 – Materia Collective is pleased to present Bacon Man: Original Game Soundtrack composed by Braxton Burks and Kyle Landry. The soundtrack, like the game, aims to have a little fun with its catchy melodies, lush orchestration, and, of course, irreverent humor that draws inspiration from the likes of Conker’s Bad Fur Day and Earthworm Jim. Fans will recognize Braxton Burks from his Pokémon Reorchestrated series and Kyle Landry as the celebrity YouTube/Twitch piano performer, and the two are thrilled to team up for this mouth-watering musical offering. Bacon Man: Original Game Soundtrack is available wherever digital music is sold starting today:
“Bacon Man has the brutal gameplay difficulty of platformers like Mega Man X paired with the cartoonish charm of cooky, irreverent games from the ’90s and early 2000s — cult classics like Earthworm Jim and Conker’s Bad Fur Day come to mind,” explains Braxton Burks. “To match the zaniness of the game’s themes, we wrote a soundtrack that is equally bonkers. Underlying most of the soundtrack is a bombastic orchestra sound, but genre-wise, we go all kinds of places. Wagnerian orchestra, Grant Kirkhope-esque diddies, EDM, funk, rock… you name it, they made us write it.”
Bacon Man is a full 3D side-scrolling action platforming game. It mixes fighting, shooting, and physics-based abilities to create a challenging experience in a beautifully rendered world inspired by the food groups. Bacon Man is crafted in the spirit of titles like Earthworm Jim, the Rayman series, and Mega Man X.
