The original soundtrack for the very promising indie game Halcyon 6: Starbase Commander is available online from today. The soundtrack features the game’s original score by Steve London (Born to be Blue, Shallow Ground, That Beautiful Somewhere).
Made with the support of the Ontario Digital Media Corporation Massive Damage’s latest release is a retro sci-fi strategy RPG with a blend of base building, exploration and a deep tactical JRPG style combat system with capital starships and idiosyncratic officers, all captured in modernized pixel graphics [check out the trailer above to see how gorgeous the graphics are!].
You can listen to Steve London’s entertaingly diverse score below [favourite track The Known Galaxy at the moment]:
