Suite from Kharon's Crypt
Kharon's Crypt is an eerie dungeon crawler game in-development by Andromeda Project. It's full of puzzles, riddles, and deadly challenges, and graphics designed to follow the aesthetics of the beloved Game Boy Color. In Kharon's Crypt, you'll be playing as Kharon (a being thought to be death itself) in his mission to escape from the crypt where he had been sealed by a deranged king that wanted to elude death.
As Kharon, your abilities are flying, going through physical objects, and weaken your enemies in order to take possession of their bodies. To defeat your opponents and escape from the crypt, you'll need to steal the bodies of your enemies, all of which have different functions and abilities. You'll be able to fly over chasms in a bat's body, fight from inside a sword-wielding skeleton, or even take control of rats in order to squeeze through the smallest of passageways!
Suite from Kharon's Crypt is a medley of three of the primary tracks heard in the game: Kharon's Ascent (Main Theme), The Second Stairwell (Dungeon Floor #2), and Encountering the Beast (Big Boss Battle). All three of these tracks are public online, and can be heard as they're implemented in-game with their 8-bit/16-bit instrumentation. Most of the soundtrack (especially the main theme) is inspired by Bach's organ writing, particularly his brilliantly designed canons and fugues. As an example, a short canon takes place in the main theme between a solo oboe and bassoon. You may also hear fragments of the main theme throughout the other two movements. With eerie, haunted, spooky, and creepy as the driving moods behind the game, filled with castles, crypts, ghosts, and ghouls, the soundtrack aims to reflect that atmosphere with pipe organ-like counterpoint.
Kharon's Crypt is set to launch soon for PC platforms, as well as Nintendo Switch, with Early Access coming by Halloween 2019. Right now, a demo is available for the first two dungeon floors of the game, which you can download (for free!) at the game's website. The full soundtrack will be available for purchase and download when Early Access is released. Please stay tuned for more updates at the following web pages!
