The composer of Jet Set Radio has new music for Hover


It sounds right at home

Two years ago, the future-set parkour game Hover: Revolt of Gamers rolled onto Steam Early Access, and to this day, it's still a work-in-progress on the platform. One of the things that put the project on my radar back when it was seeking Kickstarter funding was its music -- namely, Jet Set Radio composer Hideki Naganuma's involvement. It made perfect sense that he'd want to contribute.

Flash forward to now, and Hover has incorporated Naganuma's upbeat music in a recent patch. If you own the game, you can hear his tunes at the Fusty Pub or Gamer's HQ. Otherwise, you're a click away:

There are two tracks over on his SoundCloud page, "NEVER 4EVER" and "HEAVEN★UP," and listening to them is a real jolt. It feels like he's beaming good vibes through my ears and down into my soul.

As for the rest of the update, there's a lot more going on than just music, from tweaks to how tricks impact your score and energy to new mission types to various polish tweaks. Find the full notes here.
