Ultima Return: Character Creation Theme

The Ultima Return website has been updated again, this time with another piece of music composed by the excellent Panu Aaltio (or Grotto Dragon, as some of you may know him):

This time we are offering you, “Character Creation” which is the musical theme that will play during the traditionnal character creation of Ultima: Return. The main idea behind this theme was to bring something reminiscent of Ultima VI’s legendary Character Creation theme, but with a twist: we wanted a tone and leitmotiv of our own that would become our Ophidian theme for the game, since indeed – Ultima Return will offer its own twist upon the Virtues Questions as they will be based on Ophidian Virtues.

You can download the piece from the team’s media page, as well as listen to it in its entirety.

    Quite enjoyed the initial riff on the character creation music from Ultima VI. Otherwise it was dark, mischievous and technically solid. I recommend an extended whimsical and contemplative melody to increase its length.
