We’ve hired composer Greg Mirles, who’s released several synthwave albums that evoke the 80s through a modern lens, to handle soundtrack duties for Arcade Spirits. But that was a tough-as-nails decision because we got swamped with amazing musicians, all wanting a piece of the action.
Honestly, it felt bad turning so many away. There’s great music here that people should get an earful of, especially if they may be looking for music for their own games. So, we made an offer to the folks we didn’t select — give us some contact info and we’ll happily promote your work on our blog. Our players know what they’re looking for, and these folks can seriously deliver some of that good, good music. Why not connect the two together and see what happens?
So, here you go — in no particular order, a pile of really amazing folks you’ll want to listen to!
