Sounds Like Thread

Discussion in 'Internet & Media' started by Bunnymede Must Die, 22 Nov 2014.

  1. I'm reviving threads from the older history of the forums!

    In this thread, post any music that sounds to you like it belongs in another game, or reminds you of another soundtrack or composer.

    I'm going to start with a piece from the newest Shantae game. Like any Kaufman project, the OST for Shantae invokes a lot of familiar VGM feelings, and is comparable to a wide variety of series and games. That's why I'm starting off with a song that sounds very distinctly like another project of Kaufman's (and which I'm also pretty sure is intentional!)

    Am I crazy, or does this piece absolutely reek of Shovel Knight at points?


    Further goodness: There's another track later in (the final boss theme, in fact) that uses an incredibly similar melody to Spectre Knight's stage.

    It's also worth noting that the final boss of Shantae is a skeletal pirate lord who's been raised from the grave. Pretty much Spectre Knight's specialty. I don't wanna start sounding like that dicknose from TheGameTheorists, but the correlation seems pretty intentional and awesome.

    What musical matchups have you found?

    EDIT: Also I guess it looks like you can only attach two youtube videos to a post? We should fix that.

    yeah, I was thinking that last night before i went to sleep. BUT I WAS TIRED! so I'm glad you came up with it your own. : 3

    Oh I get it, it's the "Samluar Musiks" thread. I still think cosmic casino Act 2 sounds like cutman's theme.

    ZUN formerly worked for Taito and you'll find a lot of... blatant references to those games in his music.
