Dual Soundtracks - Double the Fun!

As you’ve probably experienced by now, after playing the Pre-Alpha build of the game, Battle Princess Madelyn is a 21st Century homage to old-school classics such as the beloved Ghouls N Ghosts, Wonderboy 3: The Dragon's Trap and, well, CAPCOM in general! We wanted to marry the old-school with the new-school by adding a new twist on things.

This was an idea that came across from, Insanity's Blade, our first game. People didn't always want to hear an 8-Bit version of the soundtrack, so we decided to include a 16-Bit version as well. It was a very popular choice, and so, when we got to work on Battle Princess Madelyn, we decided we wanted to do something different as well. The added twist this time around is that we've gone to both ends of the spectrum and let the musicians work to create some very interesting moods and themes for the game!

ORIGINS OF BATTLE PRINCESS MADELYN

When Creative Director Christopher Obritsch's daughter Madelyn wanted to be in Ghouls ‘n Ghosts, and fight “Green Head”, he said it was someone else’s game - but he could make her one that was like it. “But girls can’t be knights, Daddy. Only boys…” she said, to which he answered “Pshh…What color do you want your armor to be?”. The answer was pink 😉 And that’s how this game started. Chris' daughter Madelyn loves the first stage of Ghouls ‘n Ghosts and makes him play it over and over because she wants to see him fight “Green head”, the Shielder boss at the end of the first stage. It’s not hard for her to twist his rubber arm, as it’s been his favorite game since it came out all those years ago.
