Publisher Snowcastle Games is celebrating the open beta for Ikonei Island An Earthlock Adventure, their upcoming title about crafting, thwarting pirates, and befriending animals with a collaboration with YouTube music sensation Patty Gurdy. With her trusty hurdy-gurdy in hand, Patty Gurdy plays a Piratehog Chant, an appropriately pirate-themed song that appears in the game when you are dealing with the hogbunny Pirate Captain – Captain Rustbristle.
“Working with Snowcastle Games has been an exciting step in my career,” notes Patty Gurdy. “As a musician, it is an honor that I get the chance to work with different media such as video games, because it teaches yet another layer of the power of music. Snowcastle Games is a team of hard-working and kind people who taught me a lot about the unique aspects of this medium, and I could not have had a more welcoming start into the world of games.”
