Choicest VGM - VGM #90 - Loom - The Blacksmiths



Original Composer: Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky
Transcribed by: George Alistair Sanger and Gary Hammond

For our final Loom track we have the music that plays when you visit the Guild of Blacksmiths. Did you know that they live in a giant anvil? Yeah I only noticed that recently - shows how observant I was when I was younger :). Rusty Nailbender is one of its members that you befriend (although it gets off to a shaky start, I won't reveal why).

Here's another bit of trivia: Brian Moriarty, designer of Loom actually considered making Loom the first in a trilogy of games thanks to some vague interest in continuing the story. If Brian had the time and the interest there would've been a game called Forge and The Fold with Rusty Nailbender and Fleece Firmshanks as the protagonists respectively. However they never saw the light of day.

Brian Moriarty is apparently not in the game business anymore. As of 2009, he was appointed Professor of Practice in Game Design in the Interactive Media and Game Development program at Worcester Polytech.
