It's so awesome that Jake got the Composer behind Cuphead for episode 1. Great interview, well-recorded and paced. Can't wait to see where this goes next!
Very impressive interview, providing great insight into composing for video games. Jake Butineau and Kris Maddigan are "genuine" and "in the moment" and I highly recommend you to take a listen!
