As we work towards our Steam Early Access release, we’ve been adding music to help set the mood for the various environments in Rogue Islands.
For the title screen, we wanted to invoke a sense of somber contemplation, with ominous overtones.
Our hero, Motwort, is seated in his ship, studying his maps and deciding what islands to sail to next.
These are life and death decisions that carry a lot of weight. For the player, deciding which islands to avoid, and which to plunder, determine your chances of making it across the ocean world of Vitalor.
Damon Connolly assembled a beautiful ambient track that really sets the mood for the game. It’s titled, “An Impossible Task”. Please give it a listen and let us know what you think in the comments below.
