SAN DIEGO – October 4, 2017 – Scarlet Moon Records is thrilled to release the soundtrack to OMEGA STRIKE, an action-packed metroidvania title developed by Woblyware. Featuring music by chiptune artist Ken “coda” Snyder, the OMEGA STRIKE soundtrack draws heavy inspiration from the Game Boy Advance era with retro-flavored rock and electronic music perfect for running and gunning through Dr. Omega’s dastardly bases and installations. The OMEGA STRIKE Original Sound Version is available now wherever digital music is sold:
“It was a great experience working with coda as he is an extremely talented composer,” comments OMEGA STRIKE developer Lauri Paakinaho. “coda’s work helped bringing the audio of OMEGA STRIKE to a new level.”
“I’m a huge fan of classic run ‘n’ gun and metroidvania games,” notes coda. “For the soundtrack, I was specifically inspired by the Game Boy Advance sound from games like Castlevania: Aria of Sorrow, as well as the Nintendo DS Castlevania games, and the atmospheric arrangements of SNES and PSX classics like Super Metroid and Metal Gear Solid.”
Woblyware is a one man game studio founded in 2009 by Lauri Paakinaho. What started as a hobby ended up turning into a full time job. Working on design, programming, art and audio, initially the studio released flash games before getting into mobile and now PC titles.
