What is the meaning of this!? I demand an explanation!

In fact we’re going so far as to compose and produce the music on the same hardware that was used on the soundtracks of King’s Quest VIIndiana Jones and the Fate of AtlantisThe Secret of Monkey Island and Monkey Island 2: LeChuck’s Revenge. Yes, we’re that serious. Expect a post in the devlog covering this topic at some point.
