Episode 16: Scurge: Hive with Cam Werme

VGMbassador Cam Werme returns for a focus on Jake Kaufman’s soundtrack to Scurge: Hive for the GBA and NDS systems.

Scurge: Hive is an ambitious action-adventure game from Orbital Media, released on the Game Boy Advance and the Nintendo DS. It initially received lukewarm reviews but has since gained a cult following for its Metroid-like atmosphere and astounding Jake Kaufman soundtrack. Join Ed and Cam Werme for a dissection of the game’s music and discover the story behind Jenosa’s fight to save the galaxy from the malicious, sentient Scurge infection! 

A huge thank you to Indira J (The Misadventures of Buddy and Friend, Sacrimony) for the amazing VGMbassy artwork and design, and to Trevin Hughes (aka chiptune composer Jredd) for the podcast theme song!
