Neural Gear, developed by Fill in Cafe and published by Cross Media Soft, is a 3rd person rail shooter (riding in the light of Space Harrier) released strictly for the Sharp X68000 on November of 1990. While the game doesn’t win any awards in the visual department it makes up for it in audio. Composed by Keishi Yonao, Neural Gear features both a soundtrack designed for the OPM/OKI (FM/PCM) sound source and the MT-32 (MIDI) sound source.
Keishi Yonao, best known for Asuka 120% Burning Fest series, Mad Stalker, and Dies Ire, he’s highly regarded in the Japanese chip tune community for his creativity and detail.
His first composition started on the MSX with a game titled Hydefos and from there he joined up with Fill in Cafe to work on many of their titles. Altogether he’s done over 30 soundtracks and in addition to game audio, he also composed a CD album series called Cyberphonic as well as other compilations like a track titled MASS PURPLE for 8bit Music Power
Listen in as we discover the music and also chat briefly with Yonao-san about his career and compositions.
