“For Wave Break, we set out to reimagine what an indie game soundtrack can be,” said Eddie Lee, co-founder of Funktronic Labs. “Instead of a singular collection, Wave Break’s in-game music will update periodically with new pack-sized EP drops, pop-up radio shows, and other creative integrations. More than anything, we see music as a fun way to entertain our community.”
