FAIRFAX, VA... OverClocked ReMix today released its 68th free community arrangement album, Hometown Heroes: Town Themes Arranged. Featuring a dozen tracks from 15 artists, Hometown Heroes pays tribute to the music of video game villages, cities, and towns, and is directed by Canadian musician and game composer Emery "DaMonz" Monzerol. The album is available for free download at http://hometown.ocremix.org.

Hometown Heroes invites you in with a welcoming and hospitable lineup of game music arrangers tackling town themes in a variety of styles including chiptune, funk, solo piano, bossa nova, pop, lullaby, classical, and more. Hometown Heroes was produced to promote video game music, was made by fans, for fans, and is not affiliated with or endorsed by copyright owners; all games, images, characters, and original compositions are copyright their respective owners.

"Hometown Heroes offers a neat little package of emotions, most of which are nice and warm and comforting. Being home, missing home, and returning home are recurring themes that create a nice range of feelings as explored by the different contributors to this project," notes album director Emery Monzerol. "Even though the concept of the project is restrictive to town themes, the multiple interpretations still make it a nice, varied experience. Every individual piece brings something different to the table."

The album's selection of RPG and adventure games includes:

  • Brave Fencer Musashi
  • Dragon Slayer: The Legend of Heroes
  • Final Fantasy VI
  • Golden Sun
  • The Legend of Dragoon
  • The Legend of Heroes V: A Cagesong of the Ocean
  • The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening
  • The Legend of Zelda: The Minish Cap
  • Monster Hunter Tri
  • Phantasy Star III
  • Suikoden III; and
  • Xenogears.

The album's artwork was designed by Montréal-based illustrator Roxanne Chartrand, who also provided art for Monzerol's Kirby Super Star album, Kirby's Liberation Service.

Hometown Heroes is also Emery Monzerol's fourth OC ReMix album as a director, following his co-direction of both Mirror Image: A Link to the Past ReMixed and Super Mario RPG: Window to the Stars in 2017 as well as directing 2014's Shuttle Remix, an arrangement album companion to Monzerol's score for Wii U platformer Shuttle Rush..
