For those of you who haven’t checked out LoboCast Episode Two [shame on you!], the podcast had a piece of very exciting news, especially for those of you who appreciate video game music. Those of you who were fans of the Nintendo Rareware days, playing games like Banjo-Kazooie and Donkey Kong Country, the name Grant Kirkhope may be familiar to you… or it could just remind you how awesome your youthful days were; yeah those were good times.
During the podcast, it was announced that Grant Kirkhope would have some involvement with the Lobodestroyo game. Grant Kirkhope was the amazing composer behind many Rareware titles such as Banjo-Kazooie and Donkey Kong 64. He will be working closely with the music director, Cooper Goodwin [aka Gooseworx],
to create one of the themes for one of the ‘villanos’. UPDATE – Sorry I misheard slightly, Grant will be composting the theme to the whole ‘Liga De Los Villanos’ and Gooseworx will be remixing that theme. May I also add that Gooseworx, so far, has shown some amazing work from the game so it will be interesting to see what these two talented people can conjure up!
To find out more about this superb announcement, check out LoboCast Episode Two, the announcement is about halfway in, after the first backer question.
P.S. It’s Grant’s birthday today!
