Arcade Saga is HTC’s first internal VR title developed by 2 Bears Studios. 2 Bears Studios is led by game veterans from Microsoft Game Studios, Rockstar and Midway who have now joined senior engineers at HTC Vive to develop the next generation of VR experiences. 2 Bears Director David Sapienza worked closely with Pyramind Studios' Director Greg Gordon and Senior Producer Brennan Anderson to forge a dynamic relationship to create just the right soundtrack and sound design for a futuristic arcade style experience. With a nod to it's 8 bit past, Arcade Saga presents a 3-in-1 combo of challenges which were inspired by arcade classics such as Breakout, Galaga and Arkanoid. As a newly born A.I. entity, you battle through 3 different futuristic sports—Fracture, Smash and Bowshot—to escape slavery at the hands of the Overlords and defeat enemy minions to survive levels and upgrade your arsenal to face off against Overlords in epic boss battles.
Pyramind's team of composers (see credits below) created a mix of 8 bit arcade style music mixed with contemporary orchestral and electronica sensibilities to create a driving & memorable score that keeps you wanting more. Greg Gordon provided the voices of the four bosses, all processed by Pyramind senior sound designer Eric Kuehnl for an edgy and aggressive sound. We dare you to tell if you can make out Greg's actual voice in this one!
