Turn-based strategy game Skulls of the Shogun was released for Xbox LIVE Arcade last month and the soundtrack is now available to download. From the official press release:
Indie developer 17-BIT today announced that the soundtrack to Skulls of the Shogun is now available for digital download!
A global collaboration between Makyo and Sam Bird, the Official Skulls of the Shogun Soundtrack features an original score inspired by classic samurai films and dub.
"I usually work with Indian and middle-eastern instruments in Makyo, so this was a nice chance to explore Japanese instrumentation for a change,” said Makyo. “Each season needed to have a different feel, so I made a point of using different instrumentation for every track, including shamisen, shakuhachi, and sanshin."
"Between the zombie samurai and the request for music blending an old Kurosawa film with Dub, I pretty much had no choice but to jump aboard," added Sam Bird.
