Racing games in the 90s were a very important part of gaming history and culture. Games like OutRun, Top Gear, F-Zero, and the Lotus series brought us a formula that not only defined the genre but also inspired many of us growing up. Barry Leitch, the composer from many well-loved retro games, makes an incredible comeback to game audio with the recently released Horizon Chase racing game for iOS. In honor of his new music we’ve asked Barry to co-host by selecting several of his favorite tracks that he’s composed.
We’re very excited to have another opportunity to sit down with him to share his thoughts behind some of the most cherished and memorable melodies in racing game history as well as debut the soundtrack from Horizon Chase. Horizon Chase (by Aquiris Game Studio) is an amazing throw-back to the genre and is out now and on the App Store for iOS, with more platforms to come!
