OC ReMix Presents Unsung Heroes!

January 24, 2012

Contact: press@ocremix.org

FAIRFAX, VA... OverClocked ReMix today released its 32nd arrangement album, Unsung Heroes. It features fifteen tracks from fourteen artists, arranging songs from video games that have been widely overlooked, but are well-loved by those who have discovered them. Directed by Andrew “OA” Luers with assistant directors Deia “DragonAvenger” Vengen and Stevo “Level 99” Bortz, Unsung Heroes is available for free download at http://unsung.ocremix.org.

The album champions the unsung heroes of role-playing games throughout the years, many of which have great merit but have been overshadowed by bigger names and franchises. With tracks featuring games like Secret of Evermore, Persona 3, and Ys IV: Dawn of Ys, there’s something for everyone. It was made by fans, for fans, and is not affiliated with or endorsed by original composers, developers or publishers; all original compositions are copyright their respective owners.

Director Andrew Luers comments, "The original concept was brought forth to me by Shaun “Avaris” Wallace back when we were still working on Echoes of Betrayal, Light of Redemption. We both agreed that while it is great to work with many well-known and often mixed themes - which are so loved for good reason - there should be no reason not to extend our hands into those games that have been overlooked for so long, but have genuinely beautiful themes as well. I'm proud of the work that these gentlemen and ladies have presented in this album, and hope that others will be able to appreciate the beauty of these tracks as well."

Fourteen artists collaborated on musical tributes to many overlooked titles, including:

  • The 7th Saga

  • Secret of Evermore

  • Saga Frontier 2

  • Willow

  • Faxanadu

  • Legacy of the Wizard

  • Lufia & The Fortress of Doom

  • Luminous Arc

  • The Lord of the Rings: Volume 1

  • Bahamut Lagoon

  • Ghouls'n Ghosts

  • Breath of Fire II

  • Ys IV: Dawn of Ys

  • Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 3

  • Suikoden
