Top Score: SonicPicnic and Awesomenauts

Top Score for August 20, 2015

The soundtrack for the game "Awesomenauts" sounds like an alien radio station. All 22 characters have their own main themes, including hip-hop, roaring 20s and swashbuckling pirate tunes. On top of that, all characters have a "killing spree" theme, integrated brilliantly with the rest of the soundtrack.

The Netherlands-based composers for Awesomenauts call themselves SonicPicnic, and not only are they exceptionally talented composers, they're pretty funny, too. This interview easily made its way into my list of all-time favorite chats, and I hope you enjoy the music as well!

Be sure you check out the video of SonicPicnic recording the main theme with singer Jeffrey Zuhdy — because that dude can SING.
