Beloved video game composer, David Wise has been announced as the man behind the music for the upcoming game Snake Pass. Known for his work on the Donkey Kong Country series, Diddy Kong Racing and more recently Yooka-Laylee, David has been able to create tunes that just work for each level they appear in.
“Snake Pass is inspired by the classic Rare collectathon platformers of the N64 era, so getting David on board for the soundtrack was imperative to complete our vision”, said Seb Liese, Creator of Snake Pass. “His sunny, tropical compositions blend perfectly with the slithery gameplay. He’s truly a composer of rare talent indeed...”
“Once I played the game and saw the captivating world Sumo created, it set my mind on fire. I immediately began composing melodies, then worked with the team to develop these and nail down the feel of the soundtrack,” said David Wise. “We’ve ended up with something that not only pays tribute to the game’s classic inspirations, but also brings something new to the table, just as the game’s mechanics do!”
Snake Pass is currently in development for Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC via Steam.
