Episode 15 – Timespinner with Jeff Ball

Episode 15 – Timespinner with Jeff Ball

Plenty of games nowadays have tried to emulate and pay tribute to Castlevania: Symphony of the Night. But few are able to pull it off utilizing the minute details, especially when it comes to the music of the Playstation era. Enter, Timespinner, 2018’s indie darling. A game that tells the story of a blue-haired Time Messenger named Lunais, in a side scrolling, action-platforming adventure that will even send yourself time travelling: with a huge contribution to this feeling from composer Jeff Ball. Experience a soundtrack that will send you back to the 32-bit era of gaming. From deep discussions about inclusion and diversity of the characters’, learning about Jeff’s tactics to make the game’s soundtrack echo the brilliance from the games of yesterday, to creepy Mario Paint music chat, this is Jeff Ball and the music of Timespinner.
Special thank you to our composer guest Jeff Ball for being on this episode, as well as Scarlet Moon Productions and Materia Collective for releasing the Timespinners soundtrack! Grab a copy today: https://www.materiacollective.com/ -|- http://scarletmoon.com/
