Grant Kirkhope Releases Soundtrack To A Game That Never Happened
Grant Kirkhope has a long history as a video game composer with many of his most famous works coming from his years with Rare (Banjo-Kazooie Series, Perfect Dark, Donkey Kong 64). He has since shifted to more independent work which will be featured on upcoming indie games such as A Hat in Time, Hex Heroes and Lobodestroyo (all of which are headed to the Wii U). Throughout his many years composing video games, he has even crafted tracks for games that never happened. His latest Bandcamp release is a 3 track album titled "The game that never was and never happened!" which gives fans an audio sneak peak into a game that could have been in development but never materialized. While some may jump to the conclusion that this is lost material for Banjo-Kazooie, Mr. Kirkhope has clearly stated that this is not the case. Either way, the music is quite beautiful and is sure to stir the imagination on what could have been. The album allows you to name your own price which includes FREE so be sure to grab a copy. Enjoy!
