Joon Media 12: Grant Kirkhope (Civilization Beyond Earth); Aaron Heaton (Robots in the Wild)
Today’s show features Grant Kirkhope and Aaron “Heatbox” Heaton.
Aaron is the real deal – he’s a professional beatboxer who’s toured the world, and he’s also a game developer. Currently, Aaron is working on a game called Robots in the Wild. He’s made the game on his own, doing the coding, the art, the music, the voiceover– all of it.
Grant Kirkhope is known for his music to games like Banjo-Kazooie, Viva Piñata and so many other great titles (seriously, listen to his music for Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning if you haven’t). His newest tunes are in Sid Meier’s Civilization: Beyond Earth, and the new expansion called Beyond Earth: Rising Tide.
You guys it is SO GOOD. I can’t even. I love this music. Tell your friends. And come see Aaron “Heatbox” Heaton perform with Wookiefoot at the Cabooze in Minneapolis on New Year’s Eve!
