Scarlet Moon Records and developer Contingent99 teamed up with composer Dale North to bring Wizard of Legend’s soundtrack to life.
The game’s soundtrack is available through Spotify, iTunes and and Bandcamp. The soundtrack follows a “funky electronic/orchestral hybrid” to fit Wizard of Legend’s fast-paced gameplay. Composer Dale North shared his thoughts on Wizard of Legend’s gameplay style and how it affected his music style and how important it was to create a soundtrack suitable for “Wizard of Legend’s dazzling spells and chain attacks”
Wizard of Legend’s fast play style and design calls back to my favorite era of gaming, which was during the Sega Saturn’s heyday. I channeled my love of the sound of those games by building a soundscape based around my collection of synthesizers from the 1990s and recording them the old way: manually analog, and layer by layer. And then in line with Wizard of Legend’s dazzling spells and chain attacks, I wrote high-tempo, soaring orchestral backings to support the synthesizers, aiming for a blend that would be both exciting and memorable.
For those who aren’t familiar with the title, here is a brief description of what the game contains.
Wizard of Legend is a fast-paced dungeon crawler with an emphasis on dynamic magical combat. Quick movement and even quicker use of spells will allows players to chain spells together to unleash devastating combinations against their enemies. Unlock and master over a hundred elemental spells to overcome the Chaos Trials!
Wizard of Legend is currently available on PC and Nintendo Switch.
