Welcome to Morning Song, Kotaku’s day by day hangout for people who love video video games and the cool-ass sounds they make. As of late we’re paying attention to tune from an indie RPG composed through Vince DiCola and Kenny Meriedeth. DiCola after all, is absolute best recognized for the synth-driven soundtracks to Staying Alive, Rocky IV, and (lest we put out of your mind) 1986’s Transformers: The Film.
No, Vince DiCola isn’t the man who wrote and carried out the rock anthem “The Contact.” That’s longtime good friend of Kotaku Stan Bush. Mr. DiCola treated Transformers: The Film’s instrumental tracks. His signature synth supplied the easiest backdrop to the mid-’80s struggle of then-futuristic robots from the 12 months 2005. When you’re of a equivalent age to me, you too might smartly up with tears upon listening to his masterpiece, “The Demise of Optimus High.”
However we don’t seem to be right here to bury or reward Optimus High. We’re right here to discuss the soundtrack to Saturday Morning RPG (playlist / longplay / VGMdb), a 2012 indie sport from Mighty Rabbit. It’s a turn-based role-playing sport steeped in Eighties popular culture, stuffed with references to cartoons like He-Guy, G.I. Joe, and, naturally, Transformers.
In an effort to higher evoke the Transformers specifically, the builders tapped Vince DiCola. However the famed composer created his maximum mythical paintings within the ‘80s. May just Vince DiCola, in his mid-50s on the time, nonetheless rock out? You wager your ass he may. Pay attention to “Overdrive.” Possibly no longer whilst working a car, as it will reason you to actually over-drive.

Holy hell this monitor. It’s audio time shuttle. It’s modern day Vince diCola doing his absolute best Eighties Vince DiCola affect with that energy synth. The builders tapped him to create tune paying homage to the 1986 animated movie, and he created a monitor that sounds as though it’s being performed thru a time warp. There are some trendy twists to it, like the fast percussion wreck round 1:02, however another way it’s easiest innovative energy synth.
And that’s how we awoke within the mid-to-late ‘80s, children. With a bit of luck ol’ Vince and I helped get your week off to a excellent get started. Be happy to discuss his tune, your weekend, the approaching week, or no matter else you need to speak about within the feedback beneath.
