Fez purple level

To celebrate the launch of the darling indie-platformer Fez for Xbox Live Arcade, I decided to do another music remix. This time, I took a small, two-bar phrase from a recent trailer and flipped it into a short beat.

I can’t quite put my finger on it, but the more I listen to the original sounds, the more they remind of the classic SNES cult-favorite Earthbound. For that reason, I’m looking forward to playing through Fez and hearing the rest of the soundtrack (it doesn’t hurt that the XBLA game is a hit among critics). Plus, if I am to believe the people I follow on Twitter, the music is supposed to be pretty top notch stuff…like soundtrack-of-the-year caliber.

Thanks for listening and feel free to give any feedback you want in the comments.
