Buckle Your Pants

Dan and I are mega huge idiots, so every now and again we’d sit around the office and sing people’s actions.  It’s a good way to break up the monotony – eat the food, punch a butt, climb the stairs – and when John was spending many-a-late-night designing a Castle Crashers-themed belt buckle, ‘buckle your pants’ was born.  Around the time I was finishing the cinematics, I thought it’d be fun to hook up an official song.  It was nice to share something personal to us with the player, and I feel it wrapped up the game (and development process) on a fun note.  Yeah, FUN!  I mean, game development doesn’t ALWAYS have to be a heartless struggle of a cutthroat nightmare, right?  When your bottom line is to entertain, there’s no need to overthink it.  Just buckle your pants!

Secret Stage

The game required a secret song.  I alternated these fresh-ass lyrics with Dan in one clean run, and that’s all you need to know.

I tend to joke that only The Behemoth would accept a song like this – you turn this in at any other company, and you’d more than likely be fired.

Mr. Finale

The song I made for the finale (boss) stages.  Needed to add some pep to those brutal finale (boss) levels Erin designed.  Also called ‘nightmare stages’.  By me.  I’ll never forgive her.

I threw this one together in FL Studio with various plugs, most notably the Magical 8bit Plug (VST) you can grab over at YMCK. YMCK is sweet, check their music out!
