Okabu Floats to PSN Tomorrow, Hear the Soundtrack Now

Simon Oliver's Avatar Posted by founder, HandCircus

Since we started development, a lot of people have commented on how much they love the music of Okabu, created by our very talented partners at Resonate. Liam and the Resonate team have blown us away with what they’ve managed to create, and they’ve made a behind-the-scenes video to give you a bit of background. I’ll let Music Director Liam Paton explain in his own words!

With the release of Okabu almost upon us, we wanted to share a short film that documents our last 12 months working on the soundtrack to the game. It has been such a great project to work on and hopefully the footage captures the fun that we had along the way.

Meeting and working with an amazingly talented group of musicians, learning to play the Kalimba properly and working out how to record six-feet wide Marimbas have been just some of the highlights of the year. It feels like a long time ago since Simon first showed us that early build of Okabu last October and it’s really exciting to know that people will soon be playing the results of everyone’s hard work.

So check out Okabu in the PlayStation Store tomorrow and also part of this month’s “Only on PSN” program – we really hope you enjoy it! We’d love to hear what you think of the game, so come say hello on Twitter and Facebook.

I’ve been super excited for this game since the trailer came out. The style is fantastic but it really was the soundtrack that sold me on it. Can’t wait.

Hai Simon,

Is there going to be a possibility to buy the soundtrack separate?

Been pretty interested in this. Def looks like something I’d put on to play with the girlfriend. Hopefully it can hold up to a full playthrough without losing its charm. Shame that it probably won’t gather the attention it deserves though, due to the timing, price & lack of online co-op.

Honestly speaking, it will a great game to even play with your kids or with another member of the family. $15 isn’t much when you look at the value from that angle.

I am SUPER undecided about this one. I’ll have to wait and see how the demo is.

The music, however, sounds fantastic.

I probably won’t get a reply……but any info on if they will release an actual album to purchase in either mp3 or cd format?

That’s what made the decision on buying this game. Fell in love with the music, sounds and funny voices in the demo.
