Ian Martyn, an arranger for Ode to the Lovers commented:
“Love is a central theme in so many RPGs, games which have the time and space to really flesh out developed storylines. There is always room for love even when the situation seems dire. Love, whether gained or lost, is also an important theme in folk music from around the world.”
“To bring about these warm, fuzzy feelings we decided to create nostalgic, heartwarming sounds” stated Josh Barron, another Ode to the Lovers arranger.
There’s also a music video for “Song of Time” from The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time , check it out!
