The Spring Samurai

This is a short track I wrote for a game no longer being developed, The game doesn't look likely to ever surface so I thought I'd post this track here, rather than let it go to waste. The Spring Samurai - Main Theme

The game was set to tell the story of a samurai on a quest for revenge against the shogun who destroyed his family (or something like that. Don't ask me, I didn't write it).

The track would have played over the main menu/title sequence for the game. It's an melee action game, and had a retro "top-Down", Zelda-like perspective. One of the main things I was trying to achieve with this theme was to add some gravitas to what could very easily have been dismissed as your average action-adventure romp. I'l let you be the judge of whether or not I achieved that.

Hope you enjoy, John.
