Lesser Known Video Game Soundtracks: Pescatore (NES)

I was fumbling around today looking for some music to talk about next week and stumbled upon Pescatore, a video game created for the Famicom/NES but ultimately scrapped by Sunsoft.  For the full story, check out this link on the Lost Levels website.  It’s heartwarming.

Tierheit Sound Team composed this lovely soundtrack for the game.  I’m not really sure who or what that really means.  Looking it up, there’s no real names behind the Tierheit Sound Team so I can’t credit anything other than the team itself.  This was written for the SunSoft FME-7 soundchip, not to be confused with the special SunSoft5B that I wrote about in the past.

There’s not much music here so it was easy to find someone on YouTube who posted the whole soundtrack.  Sweet!

Lots of use of echo here using the extra channels.  I like how “thumpy” it is.  It’s certainly a goofy game.  As always, if you like the track, be sure to check it out on YouTube and give it the ol’ “thumps up“.  Special thanks to Wiiguy309 for posting this.  Enjoy the weekend!
