This endeavour warmly invites the community to tweak, modify, and re-imagine the eerie tunes of Full Void, the recently released 2D cinematic puzzle platformer inspired by the classics of the genre. The Amiga MOD music format, with its distinctive 8-bit resolution samples and 4 audio channels, aligns seamlessly with the game’s pixel art aesthetic, bringing a nostalgic yet fresh vibe to the modern gaming scene.
Ali Motisi, the artistic director of the project, reflects on this initiative, "The '80s and '90s gaming scene thrived on demos and hands-on creativity, fostering a vibrant community of enthusiasts. Releasing the MOD tracks of Full Void's soundtrack is our way of reaching out to this community, supporting the enduring spirit of innovation and shared creativity that defines it. We're excited to see how the community reimagines Robyn’s haunting compositions."
Robyn Powell, whose musical journey was sparked by retro computer games, employed her vast music tracker knowledge to compose in the Amiga MOD format, lending Full Void an authentic and distinctive retro sound. Her compositions, inspired by classic sci-fi films, seamlessly accompany the players through the dystopian, machine-ruled landscapes of Full Void.
Discussing the choice of Amiga MOD music, Powell shared, "The limitations of the format allow for further creativity where every note counts. It’s a fun and efficient format that reduces the overall size of the game, thus reducing the loading time. This, along with the unique sound it offers, made it the perfect choice for Full Void’s soundtrack.”
