"Wizard of Legend's fast play style and design calls back to my favorite era of gaming, which was during the Sega Saturn's heyday," explains composer Dale North. "I channeled my love of the sound of those games by building a soundscape based around my collection of synthesizers from the 1990s and recording them the old way: manually analog, and layer by layer. And then in line with Wizard of Legend's dazzling spells and chain attacks, I wrote high-tempo, soaring orchestral backings to support the synthesizers, aiming for a blend that would be both exciting and memorable."

"It's been a pleasure working with Dale and Scarlet Moon," comment Contingent99 developers Dahoon Lee and Bundy Kim. "The entire project has been an awesome collaborative process and we feel that the final soundtrack is the culmination of all the hard work the team put in to bringing Wizard of Legend to life. We can't thank Dale enough for helping us throughout this journey and we hope that everyone enjoys the Wizard of Legend Original Soundtrack as much as we do!"

Wizard of Legend is a fast-paced dungeon crawler with an emphasis on dynamic magical combat. Quick movement and even quicker use of spells will allows players to chain spells together to unleash devastating combinations against their enemies. Unlock and master over a hundred elemental spells to overcome the Chaos Trials!

 

About Dale North

 

Dale North is a composer, arranger, and orchestrator for videogames, based in the San Francisco Bay Area. As a multi-instrumentalist (piano, vocal, brass), performer, and singer-songwriter with an international training, he brings a unique voice to videogame music.

Dale's music mixes traditional instrumentation with vintage colors, blending live pianos and orchestral tones with the synthesizers and sound sets that shaped the sounds of games from the Super Nintendo and PlayStation eras. His upbringing in Tokyo, Japan helped shape his melodic sense (and his love of synthesizers), and he continues to hold the traditions of game music in the highest regard.

Dale looks forward to working on projects that favor creativity and seek to honor game music's rich heritage.

He also really, really likes Welsh Corgis.
