I'm very excited to announce a total overhaul of the game's (admittedly basic) musical score. Prior to this update, any and all sounds present in the prototype were taken directly from the 8bit games (via the official OSTs) and while they were faithful to the source material I felt they were a bit too loud and/or high-pitched and tingy at times. It was because of this (as well as requests from several players) that I went on a mission to find a better soundtrack for the game.

It was around this time that I came across musical genius and YouTube user TheLegendOfRenegade, an incredibly talented artists who has remixed every* single musical track from Mega Man 1 - 9 + Mega Man & Bass in a catchy, high-quality Sega Genesis style. Because the prototype is done in 8bit it seemed natural to go with a purely 8bit soundtrack, but now that the graphics have a lot more shading and depth and the mechanics are more fleshed out I think a more refined soundtrack from better hardware is appropriate. I contacted TheLegendOfRenegade for permission to use the tracks, and then I waited.

In the meantime, I created a post in the community forums asking if anyone was willing to help out with this part of the project. I was optimistic about TheLegendOfRenegade's tracks, but I needed a fallback in case the partnership didn't pan out. Luckily, he replied in good time and we now have official permission to use them in the game, so that is no longer necessary (thank you to those who offered!). :D

All tracks in the prototype have been revised and now come from his massive, multiple-game-spanning Sega Genesis / MD Remix project and I promise they are really, really incredible. All field music thus far has come from his Mega Man 1 & 2 collection with various menu and special battle themes coming from the Rockman & Forte and Mega Man 7 collections in addition to the former. The level of quality and polish these remixes bring to the game is beyond words, and I am so grateful that we're able to showcase them in our prototype. TheLegendOfRenegade has done some truly great work, and I think I speak for everyone on the team when I say "thank you". ^_^

* Because TheLegendOfRenegade has not created remixes for Time Man and Oil Man's stages in Powered Up, the R&F themes for Astro Man and Tengu Man are currently being used in their place. The game will be updated if/when he ever creates them, but please enjoy the current selection until then. :)

I really like Renegade's songs, and I like how they fit in the game. Way better than the old music.

I was expecting a RM: Complete Works direction but this is good as well. Though by personal choice I prefer Sony's sound chip in Nintendo's SNES.

I've heard some of Renegade's work, he's amazing! Can't wait to hear his Time Man and Oil Man remixes!

On a personal note, guess who has two hand-drills and is having an awesome birthday?

THIS GUY!!!

@Keepman96 : It IS awesome music! And thanks.

@Shadownnico : I agreed completely. The old music sounded good coming from an old TV in the 80s when nothing better was available, but not on modern-day speakers and/or headphones as much. Renegade's stuff is much better for sure. :)

@MMX100 : Maybe some day in the future I can add an option for switching soundtracks? This Sega Genesis reimagining or the official beats from the creators. You never know! :P

@Spinstrike : I anxiously look forward to his remixes for Time & Oil too! And also, Happy Birthday!!! :D
