BloodRayne: Betrayal's rockin' soundtrack hits Bandcamp
Okay, so maybe Jim didn't care for WayFoward's reboot of the BloodRayne franchise with last week's release of BloodRayne: Betrayal, but I'm here to tell you that it wasn't all bad. The game's soundtrack, composed by Jake Kaufman (the composer of Shantae and Contra 4 as well as a famous chiptune artist and game music arranger), is actually pretty awesome, taking inspiration from Castlevania: Symphony of the Night with its guitar shredding and epic orchestral accents. Oh, and don't forget about the unlockable "chiptune" mode which replaces the entire soundtrack with retromazing 8-bit variations. Setup email comments
Kaufman took the liberty of releasing the soundtrack yesterday on the Ubiktune label, providing some back story about the soundtrack along with an explanation of how the 8-bit chiptune mode came about. The music itself has been uploaded to Bandcamp where you can simply stream or name your own price for a download. Whether you decide to pick it up for free or kick $5 his way, it's worth checking out.
For those who've given the game a spin despite our scathing review, did the soundtrack at least stand out? Do you think more games ought to feature an 8-bit mode?
