This was another project from Chris Savory (Swap Heroes) that I had the pleasure of working on. At first we were toying around with the idea of another SNES sounding soundtrack, with games like Super Mario RPG as some of the benchmarks. But quickly we realized that the game needed a much more subtle touch. The goal was to write music that did not take too much focus from the gameplay. Match three games don't necessarily benefit from a manic thrill ride for a soundtrack.
Instead We wanted the player to always feel involved in the game, so extra care was made to not write with any grand crescendos in mind, but still have the song be moving from new section to new section. An interesting challenge. This was the sound we eventually landed on.
Be sure to check the game out! Here is the release trailer (with SFX by yours truly):
