Toricky, a Japanese 2D flying platform adventure game, will feature an original soundtrack from some renowned video game composers. Produced by Scarlet Moon Records, the original soundtrack is available from Bandcamp, iTunes, Spotify, and Steam.
Toricky Original Soundtrack
The Toricky original soundtrack is a collaboration between two long-time video game industry composers. Hiroki Kikuta is best known for his work on the classic SNES RPG Secret of Mana. After scoring additional titles for Squaresoft, such as Soukaigi and Seken Densetsu III, Kikuta set off on his own and has been scoring independent titles in and out of Japan.
Originally a game music remixer, Dale North has long been a familiar name in the video game industry. Most recently, his scores have backed titles such as PAC-MAN Pop, Dragon Fantasy Book II, and Sinmara Saga. A prolific singer, songwriter, and composer, North has a wide body of work featured on his website.
According to North, getting to work with Hiroki Kikuta was “a dream project.” The aspect of flying is central to the composition of the music, and North says that he designed the musical compositions ” to sound like they’re gliding over the supporting musical framework.”
Hiroki Kikuta expresses his inspiration of the combination of nature and military with Toricky’s central characters, Toricky and Momo. He designed the game’s main theme as “an air force march,” and hopes it will enhance the player’s gaming experience.
Toricky is available via Steam, and the original soundtrack is available through a variety of digital outlets.
