Two of the albums in the Prescription for Sleep: Game Music Lullabies series are compilation albums. The second one had an extra track inspired by Shovel Knight. That track is titled “Courage Under Fire”. Three of the albums were dedicated to Celeste, Secret of Mana, and Undertale. The series also has a compilation of battle themes turned lullabies, and a charity EP that honors the late, and much missed Nintendo President, Satoru Iwata.

Album Producer Jayson Napolitano had the following comments on the Prescription for Sleep: Shovel Knight album:

“I’ve been wanting to produce this album for a long time. With King of Cards due out next week, the time is now, and we’re especially pleased to share our longest album to date with a beautiful physical edition that I personally can’t wait to get my hands on.”

About Michael Fontanini

Michael is a veteran gamer in my early 30s, who grew up around video games, with fond memories of the oldies like the NES and SNES. He loves Nintendo but also plays a lot of games on his PC. Michael also enjoys going for walks or bike rides, and loves animals.

Michael is also a computer programmer. This started with a toy he got as a kid called PreComputer 1000 that was made by V-Tech. It had a simple programming mode which is what started him down the road of being a programmer! Michael can program in BASIC, Visual Basic, C++, C#, and is familiar with Java and Lua Script.

Putting programming and gaming together, Michael became a hobbyist game developer which may give him some good insights on game development! Most recently, he has been playing with the free version of the Unity engine (a powerful and easy-to-use game engine).

I love Nintendo but I also play a lot of game's on PC, many of which are on steam. My favorite Nintendo game's include Zelda, Metroid, and Smash Bros to name a few. On PC I love the Half-Life games, as well as most all of the Source Engine games just to name a few.
