Episode 25 – Freedom Planet with Composer Leila “Woofle” Wilson
Freedom Planet, the 2014 indie darling developed by Stephen Diduro (aka Strife) set the bar for games influenced by Sonic the Hedgehog and Rocket Knight Adventures. But a Sonic style game needed a Sonic styled composer…or did it? Enter Leila “Woofle” Wilson, who brought her love of JRPGs, Funk and New Jack Swing to compliment Strife’s more Mega Man focus, along with Shane Ellis aka Blue Warrior’s composition assistance, the three created the exciting soundtrack of Freedom Planet! Today, we’re honored to have Leila Wilson join us for a special interview where we find out the origin story of the game, hear Leila gush about her VGM influences, and learn all about Lilac, Carol and Milla’s fun and frantic journey!
