Kharon’s Crypt is an eerie dungeon crawler game by Andromeda Project. It’s full of puzzles, riddles, and deadly challenges, and graphics designed to follow the aesthetics of the beloved Game Boy Color. In Kharon’s Crypt, you’ll be playing as Kharon (a being thought to be death itself) in his mission to escape from the crypt where he had been sealed by a deranged king that wanted to elude death.
Suite from Kharon’s Crypt is a medley of three of the primary tracks heard in the game: Kharon’s Ascent (Main Theme), The Second Stairwell (Dungeon Floor #2), and Encountering the Beast (Big Boss Battle). All three of these tracks are public online, and can be heard as they’re implemented in-game with their 8-bit/16-bit instrumentation. Most of the soundtrack (especially the main theme) is inspired by Bach’s organ writing, particularly his brilliantly designed canons and fugues. As an example, a short canon takes place in the main theme between a solo oboe and bassoon. You may also hear fragments of the main theme throughout the other two movements. With eerie, haunted, spooky, and creepy as the driving moods behind the game, filled with castles, crypts, ghosts, and ghouls, the soundtrack aims to reflect that atmosphere with pipe organ-like counterpoint.
