The third game in the Operation Rainfall trilogy, Pandora’s Tower has a rich musical heritage.  Follow along as we dive into the origins of the music and how it is implemented in the game.  Several famous classical composers and their pieces are discovered in this series.  In part one, a closer look is taken at ‘Catanae Fortunae,’ the main theme.  Written and Narrated by Operation Rainfall Staff member Clinton Nix.

About Clinton Nix

Former Volunteer- Clinton started following the movement back when it was still being hosted on the IGN message boards and with the Amazon push of Monado. He’s also an audio engineer, studying in Seattle and waiting for his big break into the world of audio (but not to the detriment of video game writing, of course).

    Heh. Dies Irae means days of rage. That kind of sets the mood. And I think Catenae Fortunae means fortune chains (or chains of fortune/luck/etc.)

    Impressive! Great job! I remember the song Ceres was singing in the prologue but I can’t seem to find the origin… Hmmm… This shows it has a bit of elements of history of famed composers!

    • That song will be covered next week in part II.
