What do Yooka-Laylee and Snake Pass have in common? Aside from the fact that the two games lovingly pay homage to the collect-a-thon platformers of the Nintendo 64 era, both also feature the musical stylings of David Wise, the legendary video game composer renowned for his work on Donkey Kong Country and many other Rare classics. Sumo Digital, the studio behind Snake Pass, revealed today that Wise will be contributing his musical talents to the upcoming platformer, which is slated to arrive on Switch (and all other major platforms) later this spring.
Borne out of Sumo Digital’s first internal “game jam,” Snake Pass is a physics-based puzzle platformer starring the unlikely pair of Noodle the snake and Doodle the hummingbird. Mr. Wise had the following to say about his involvement in the project: “Once I played the game and saw the captivating world Sumo created, it set my mind on fire. I immediately began composing melodies, then worked with the team to develop these and nail down the feel of the soundtrack.”
