OverClocked ReMix has just released its thirty-fourth arrangement album in tribute to Nintendo’s game series Pilotwings and the original score produced by the various composers involved throughout the series such as Soyo Oka (Pilotwings),Â Dan Hess (Pilotwings 64), and Asuka Ito (Pilotwings Resort). The album itself features seven tracks from Indianapolis-based arrangerÂ Drew “halc” Wheeler, who humbly takes his time in Pilotwings: Take FlightÂ to combineÂ “nostalgic chiptune instrumentation with modern electronic sounds and production techniques”.
Insert Rupee, a collaboration between Benjamin Briggs and halc, also make an exciting appearance, arranging two pieces from the later installments in the Pilotwings series. It is also worth noting that the album’s concluding track, “Depth Perception,” is OC ReMix’s first arrangement representing the Nintendo 3DS console.
While you can download the album for free atÂ http://flight.ocremix.org, old-schoolers can also get and shareÂ Pilotwings: Take Flight byÂ torrent as well. Comments and reviews for the release itself may be given and seen in the official OC ReMix forums here.
