New PlayStation Minis Title Signs Killzone Composer

November 8, 2011Written by Sebastian Moss

Developers of the enjoyable iOS and PS minis title Coconut Dodge, FuturLab are hard at work on their next minis game, a futuristic shooter set to release in March. Now, the developer has brought on the fantastic talent of Killzone composer Joris de Man, who won an Ivor Novello award for his work on Killzone 2.

James Marsden, FuturLab’s Managing Director, said:

The team has developed some very innovative mechanics on this game, so we wanted to give it a big sound to complement the gameplay experience. We’ve been great fans of Joris’ work, both on the Killzone series and for the indie game N+, so we’re very excited that he’s onboard, and able to use his expertise to help realise our vision.

Joris de Man added:

It’s always exciting to be involved with indie projects; there’s an energy that comes from working with teams like FuturLab that’s contagious and fuels my ideas because they take risks where some can’t.

I really love the game mechanics that are being employed in the game; they bring a cool twist on a classic genre, something I love to do with music and its production. It’s going to be fun to delve into my Atari roots to bring an old skool flavor to the sound of this mini.

It’s always great to see big name talent work on indie titles, and we can’t wait to hear more about the game as it nears its release.
