This week on Pixelated Audio, we’re playing music from an amazing little Nintendo DS game that you might have missed called Lock’s Quest. The composer, David J. Franco, joins us for a quick chat and with over 90 tracks in the game he’s done an excellent job of creating a truly inspirational soundtrack. Also, joining the discussion is a close friend and Lock’s Quest enthusiast, Swendu (@swendu).

Lock’s Quest is one of my favorite games of all time. I’m glad it’s getting some attention :D Great show!
By the way, regarding the Lock’s Quest mini-comic, A Source of Hope: It was included in every copy of the game, and there’s an animated version on Youtube. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IIQLQpgYcIY
Man, all three of us realized after the show that we all had the comic included in our copy. I’m so glad they did this but wish it was longer (or a full-fledged graphic novel)
I was lucky enough to catch probably the only advertisement they ever showed on German TV and immediatly looked up reviews only, to find that it was very well received and went out to get it. I really love this game, though I only recently beat it. Back then I got stuck on the swamp level where enemies come towards you from all sides.
Never got to play the multiplayer, though I even gifted my friend a copy, but I think he never tried it.
I’ll pledge my loyalty to you for covering this game.
Wow that is pretty lucky! And yes what a great game (in pretty much every way) that pretty much everyone missed.
