Ironzilla Teams Up with Composers of Hit Indie Game Castle Crashers for Game on Kickstarter

San Francisco, CA, (June 11th, 2012) - Fans of Castle Crashers, prepare your ears for an epic score in Ironzilla's upcoming side-scrolling action RPG, Zombocalypse. Ironzilla, an independent game development startup based in San Francisco, is having the soundtrack of their first mobile game being created by Symphony of Specters (SoS). They are an award winning team of seasoned composers and sound designers who have done work on over 200 games and have worked with companies such as Marvel, Coca-Cola, Disney, and Nickelodeon. Symphony of Specters' past work on critically acclaimed indie game, Castle Crashers, catapulted them into notoriety, producing iconic soundtracks such as the main menu theme song "Four Brave Champions."

 

Tom Fulp, CEO of Newgrounds and co-creator of Castle Crashers says, "The music created by the Symphony plays a prominent role in the Xbox Live Arcade game Castle Crashers. It would not have been the same experience without those tracks!"

Taking place amidst the zombie apocalypse, Zombocalypse's soundtrack will feature both orchestral and ambient scores, all intricately tailored to immerse the player in it's frantic arcade style action. Just like with Danny Baranowsky's work in Super Meat Boy, and Jim Guthries music in Sword & Sworcery EP, the soundtracks produced by SoS will be promoted as an album.

"It's a common avenue for Kickstarter projects and is usually successful with the fans," says SoS musical composer Nick Perrin about the Zombocalypse album. "A game experience really gives it's music more value, and vice versa as well, getting fans hyped and spreading word with content that will capture the feel of that experience."

Ironzilla is currently running a Kickstarter campaign for Zombocalypse. Those who back the project will receive a copy of the official soundtrack album, as well as other cool rewards such as their name in the game, the Zombocalypse development book, t-shirts, and posters.

With just 10 days left, Ironzilla hopes to receive the support from gamers everywhere, especially those who appreciate great music and zombie mayhem on the go.
