David Wise and Grant Kirkhope join Project Ukulele


Kameo's Steve Burke, too

I need to take some deep breaths here. Former Rare developers are creating a spiritual successor to "those fondly remembered platforming adventures we built in the past," and they've brought on Grant Kirkhope, David Wise, and Steve Burke to contribute music to the project.

The soundtracks to Donkey Kong Country (Wise) and Banjo-Kazooie (Kirkhope) rank among my favorites in all of gaming. Magical. And while I have painful memories of my launch-day Xbox 360 struggling to run Kameo: Elements of Power without red-ringing, Burke's score was pleasant.

I'm trying not to expect too much from Project Ukulele, but that's not going so well.
