He’s been busy in the video games sector too; the most recent title to feature his music was “Kill the Bad Guy“, a thrilling puzzle game where you have to find ingenious ways of ridding the Earth of its worst criminals! The music is a perfect soundtrack to the game, skillfully mixing genres to convey the tension of the game universe while allowing the player to carefully consider his next move…

This “making-of” shows how Samuel Safa composed the music for “Kill the Bad Guy“:

Samuel’s next video game project will be 2Dark,  the new title from Fréderic Raynal (Alone in the Dark, Little Big Adventure!) and the team at Gloomywood. Samuel composed the game soundtrack, and we will keep you updated on the latest exciting news about the 2Dark OST.

May we take this opportunity to extend a warm welcome to Samuel!

Mother Russia Bleeds rises on Steam!

September 9, 2016 in Audio, Slideshow, Sound Design by Rémi Laouti

logo_MRB1Mother Russia Bleeds is a beat ’em up game fresh from indie developers Cartel Studio and published by Devolver Digital. The game combines the traditional features of Streets of Rage with the ultra violence of Hotline Miami.

The game is set in an alternative USSR, where the player, alone or alongside 3 friends in co-op multiplayer, battles his enemies through the side-scrolling levels with the vast number of tools available in the game.

G4F participated in the creation of Mother Russia Bleeds by taking care of the sound effects production of the game!  These ranged from punch and chainsaw to the accordion throw in your opponent’s face, nothing was left to chance.

The original soundtrack was composed by Fixions, a synthwave artist that you can follow on Facebook. In his tracks, you can find the frenzy and brutality of the game with a powerful electro beat and the retro graphic universe using the numerous chiptune sounds. Or: a lesson in how to revamp an old, forgotten video game genre accompanied by a modern and explosive sound. The OST is available on Bandcamp and YouTube.

Mother Russia Bleeds is available on Steam since 5th september. Stay tuned for the latest news about the game on Facebook and Twitter.
