Although music is just a hobby, the composer co-wrote one of the best soundtracks of the year

It’s just the beginning, but 2023 already seems to have a breakout indie hit: Pizza Tower (opens in a new tab)a breakneck platformer that combines the best elements of Wario Land and 2D Sonic with a graphic style reminiscent of a Nickelodeon cartoon from an alternate timeline from the 90s. It also sounds incredible (opens in a new tab)like a 2D platformer soundtrack, it has no right to go so hard, but Ronan “Mr. Sauceman” de Castel and ClascyJitto (opens in a new tab) (also credited as Frostix) made it happen.

Take the opening track, Time For A Smackdown (opens in a new tab)⁠ – it starts off funky and discreet and then just goes into that guitar line that I couldn’t get out of my head for the last few weeks. Ditto for It’s Pizza Time! (opens in a new tab)theme of end-of-level escape sprints that turn into crazy jams as the clock ticks.

It’s just so hard to release something out there, like you’re a little ashamed of what you’re doing, it sounds so bad!”
