Because you can never take things quite far enough, right? Of course not.
Fully embracing the lost game from the eighties ethic entirely, to go along with DRM:The Game I wanted a theme tune.
I wanted a theme tune I could run in slow motion to. I wanted a theme tune I could maybe have some soft focus sex to. I wanted a theme tune that if need be, would signal I’d managed to defeat an entire army of mechanical robots using nothing but green laser beams and a smoke machine. Whilst wearing shades. That’s the sort of theme tune I wanted. That’s the sort of theme tune I got. The sort of theme tune I’d be happy to gel my hair to and travel into the future on. Even though where we’re going, we don’t need hair. The sort of theme tune people try not to make for films anymore because orchestral bombast or a tune you might recognise from a popular beat combo is the order of the day instead.
A proper film theme tune for a proper 80′s film, cheese and all.
Mega, mega thanks to Gavin Harrison who indulged me by letting me get away with the briefest of descriptions, two youtube links and a playlist as guidance. I consider myself very lucky in that I’ve had wonderful, wonderful people who’ve contributed music to my games prior and it’s an honour to add Gavin’s name to that list. He’s been absolutely great to work with and came up with something I’m immensely proud to be able to showcase in DRM:The Game.
You can listen to and purchase The Theme From DRM from Gavin’s bandcamp page RIGHT NOW, a few weeks in advance of the game’s launch. Hopefully, you too will then be able to defeat giant robots, have some soft focus sex and run in slow motion. ALL AT THE SAME TIME.
