Infinity: Original Sound Version
September 02, 2016
An intriguing 8-bit soundtrack that covers multiple styles, for an RPG series that pushed the Game Boy sound chip to the limit!
Infinity was developed for the Game Boy Color in 2000 and 2001 by Affinix Software. The team at the time (Justin Karneges and Hideaki Omuro, originally known for their popular Texas Instruments RPG called Joltima) were at it again designing a new RPG for the Game Boy Color pushing its hardware limits to the max. Produced by Matt Rossi, they brought Mark Yohalem on to write its epic story. Melvin de Voor provided background art as well as character art (later touched up by Hideaki). Eric E. Hache joined the team to provide its epic soundtrack, though with challenges of its current sound system, brought in the assistance of Mathew Valente utilizing the tools of Paragon 5’s award winning composition/sound effects software called “Game Boy Tracker” to provide advanced techniques to get the most out of the Game Boy sound chip.
The soundtrack contains 31 tracks with music written by Eric E. Hache, and two guest tracks written by Mathew Valente. The beautiful music written to invoke emotion, to tug at the strings of nostalgia as it was written with a classic 8-bit RPG vibe. Multiple styles of music present, they were all expertly crafted by sound engineer Mathew Valente, who utilized many advanced techniques to get the most out of the sound chip.
Very special thanks to Justin Karneges, Matt Rossi, Hideaki Omuro, Mark Yohalem, Melvin De Voor, to everyone of the Infinity fans, as well as everyone who has supported us!
“We would like to thank our team at Affinix Software foremost for their efforts in developing this special game, as well as our families and friends for the love and support that they have given us to make this all possible.
