SEATTLE - May 16, 2019 - Materia Collective is pleased to present the Bubsy: Paws on Fire! (Original Game Soundtrack) by composer Stemage. Appropriately decked out with a groovy 32-bit aesthetic but incorporating a modern twist, the soundtrack touches on a variety of styles from rock and electronic to chiptune and more. Stemage--best known as the guitarist of Steven Universe and the founder of Metroid Metal--delivers a diverse range of styles and works wonders with the unique music generation system to allow listeners to experience the magic on the soundtrack album itself. Bubsy: Paws on Fire! (Original Game Soundtrack)  is now available wherever digital music is sold:

"The music of Bubsy: Paws on Fire! is built out of puzzle pieces," explains composer Stemage. "Unique character layers build on base tracks to create different songs for each character. Song segments allow parts of each song to be played in any order - keeping things fresh when replaying levels. It was a challenge, but limitations like this are what keep us creative! Between that, a new instrument palette, and working with Choice Provisions, making the Bubsy music was a total blast. Those guys let me get weird. If you hear a hi-hat playing Morse code during one of the songs, don't say I didn't warn you."

Bubsy: Paws on Fire! is developed by Choice Provisions, the team behind the BIT.TRIP series. It features four playable characters, an all-new story featuring the unlikely alliance between Bubsy and his archrivals, over 100 levels set across three different worlds, unique character dialog and a combo system and set of leaderboards for every character, and the return of Oinker, Terri, Terry, and many other characters from previous Bubsy incarnations! It's now available on PC and PlayStation 4 with a Nintendo Switch release planned for summer.
