We’ve spotlighted the work of video game music artist Dale North here before. His latest work is the soundtrack for Marble Knights, a competitive brawler where all the fighters have giant round marbles for lower bodies and victory involves mastery of rolling physics and ricocheting off each other in just the right way. Marble Knights was developed by Wayforward, who always does good work, but unfortunately the game is currently exclusive to Apple Arcade.
The soundtrack, however, isn’t. Scarlet Moon just released North’s score, which they describe as “a playful and grandiose orchestral fantasy soundtrack with retro accents.”
“I had a lot of forward momentum rolling into my work on the soundtrack for Marble Knights,” North recalls for this one. “The fantastic art, gliding gameplay, and outstanding voice work all made spinning up the music very easy. And, of course, I almost lost my marbles when I heard I’d be working with Studio Trigger, one of my favorite animation studios ever. Needless to say, being able to write this fantasy/chiptune hybrid soundtrack was an absolute ball. I would be so happy if you could roll it into your music rotation!”
In Marble Knights, sword-swinging fantasy meets marble mania! Roll into battle with Orbin, Marabelle, and the other Knights of the Round to defend King Rolland and the Kingdom of Roundingham from the evil Lord Terroball! Marble Knights is developed by WayForward and is available exclusively on Apple Arcade.
The Marble Knights Original Game Soundtrack is available now on all digital storefronts (pick your favorite through this link). We hope Marble Knights itself is someday released outside of a walled mobile market; it’s be great on Switch.
