Ikenfell is the first game soundtrack by aivi & surasshu, the composers for Steven Universe. A digital fusion of chiptune and piano, as well as performances by friends and collaborators including vocals by Sammus, Adriana Figueroa, Renko, and Rekcahdam. Ikenfell is a turn-based tactical RPG about a group of students at magic school making friends and uncovering secrets. Channeling their experience composing for cartoons, aivi & surasshu scored the game in a similar way, writing mood cues to follow the developing story and relatable characters. The resulting music is optimistic, elegant, mysterious, quirky, and sometimes a little spooky.
