Check out the Saturday Morning RPG soundtrack for the episodic RPG inspired by 80s Saturday morning cartoons

If you were as addicted to Saturday morning cartoons as I was you may like this video game soundtrack inspired by that Saturday vibe. Last year Scarlet Moon Records released the Saturday Morning RPG original soundtrack featuring the work of musician Vince DiCola - known for his work on Transformers: The Movie and Rocky IV - and his writing partner, Kenny Meriedeth. This is DiCola's first videogame score.

Saturday Morning RPG soundtrack Saturday Morning RPG is an episodic role-playing game set in world heavily inspired by 1980s Saturday morning cartoons - released in 2012 by Mighty Rabbit Studios. Players take the role of Martin "Marty" Michael Hall, an average high-school student who has just been granted an incredible power.

Saturday Morning RPG's story is structured in an episodic fashion, much like the Saturday-morning cartoons it draws inspiration from. Episodes can be played and replayed in any order.

It's been released for iOS, Linux, PC, Mac, and Ouya. The game was met with positive reviews for the most part. Those who weren't as enthused with it complained of it's difficulty - which isn't the worst sort of criticism compared to the myriad of simplistic games released by the dozen! Most who complained were satisfied with updates to the game - available on Steam.

Saturday Morning RPG game I tend to become much too focused when playing games to really appreciate a game's soundtrack. So, it's a lot of fun to be able to play the soundtrack without the distraction of having to save the world! We suggest you check out the Saturday Morning RPG soundtrack on Bandcamp or iTunes. It's a cool mix of Saturday Morning memories with gaming inspiration!

Founded in 2013, Scarlet Moon Records aims to make available amazing game music that otherwise wouldn't be heard. The label works with a wide network of composers and musicians around the globe to identify and publish original soundtracks for games that developers or publishers have no intention of releasing, as well as producing arrangement albums featuring the same global talent.
