Not everything is gloom and doom though as the studios working on Melon Journey: Bittersweet Memories released a remixed compilation of composer markeryjane’s electronic- and jazz-inspired soundtrack.
I’m not even going to attempt to recap what this game is about because it sounds pretty trippy:
What power a single melon holds! When Cantaloupe goes missing, melon factory employee Honeydew ducks out of their shift at Eglantine Industries to head to Hog Town, where melons are outlawed and corruption abounds. As Honeydew’s search begins, an array of intertwining mysteries begin to unfold in the brand-new story-exploration game Melon Journey: Bittersweet Memories. Is the Cavity Crew a true threat? Is Kitten King the cause of all this? Honeydew will need to comb every inch of the green-tinted pixelated world, their every step accompanied by the beats of the jazzy lo-fi soundtrack, to save the day in this monochromatic mystery packed with eccentric personalities. Who knew so much trouble could come from just a single melon?
The wait for this lo-fi trip isn’t too long thankfully, as it will move back one month and now launch on April 13, 2023.
