Folk music for Hyperdrive Inn

The adventure begins when the main character’s father has disappeared into an infinitely changing hotel run by an artificial intelligence. The game is built according to the theme to be always changing and every game experience is different.

I set out to break this down musically by composing a few main themes, variations of which would be used throughout the game. There will eventually be dozens of different songs, but the common themes make the workload easier.

Juho, the founder of Horsefly Games, hoped that the game’s music would also have elements of folk music. We both have a love for the folk music tradition of Kaustinen, and as an old music high school student of Kaustinen, I have used folk music influences in various projects over the years.
