PIXEL NOIR Soundtrack Evokes Golden Age of JRPGs

Re-live JRPG soundtracks from the 8-bit through PlayStation eras with this soundtrack sampler, available alongside PIXEL NOIR’s Kickstarter campaign


New York City, New York – April 30, 2014 – SWDTech Games is delighted to announce the availability of a soundtrack sampler for their 16-bit-flavored role-playing title, PIXEL NOIR. In what’s been described as an equal blend of Chrono Trigger and Shadowrun, PIXEL NOIR¬†aims to resurrect the classic JRPG, and has taken to Kickstarter to fund development and stay true to their vision rather than cave into publisher pressure to add pay-to-play features and cater to a casual audience.

PIXEL NOIR’s¬†soundtrack is composed by SWDTech Games Business Development & Audio Lead Kunal Majmudar, who is best known for his role in the game music cover band, The OneUps, and the remixing group, The Bad Dudes. The soundtrack combines 8-bit and orchestral elements that are heavily influenced by JRPGs of the 8-bit through PlayStation eras. The PIXEL NOIR: Super Mysterious Detective Sampler is currently available on Bandcamp, and can be streamed in its entirety for a taste of what to expect:

As a part of the ongoing PIXEL NOIR Kickstarter campaign, the full soundtrack, which is being painstakingly crafted by Majmudar, will be available in digital format starting at the $25 support level and in physical format at the $100 support level. Multiple other backer rewards are available as well, and fans of this golden age of JRPGs are encouraged to check out the Kickstarter campaign:
